Many aspects of blogging are an experiment. Picking the right theme. Choosing the right layout. Deciding on a catchy title for the whole blog or for just a blog post. In some ways, I feel like a scientist as I daily work on the craft of writing. Yesterday’s experiment proved to be worth while. The experiment involved guest posting over at Jeremy Statton’s blog (Living Better Stories) and hosting guest blogger Kevin Haggerty (TheIsleOfMan.Net). Yesterday, The Stretched Blog experienced its single biggest day of traffic to date. (If you haven’t done so already check out those two posts titled Rediscovering My Dream and Learning To Count To Five.)
With this in mind, I’d like to try another experiment today. Are you ready?
I’d like to offer three free advertising spots that will go on the right hand menu bar of my main page. I will select the “winners” of the spots based on response to this post. All you need to do is tell me why you think The Stretched Blog would be a good place to promote your blog. I’ll choose the three winners, and I’ll reach out to you via e-mail to coordinate the actual advertisement. I can probably help out a little with creating the advertisement, but I’m hoping that you might already have an idea that would fit in this spot. The spots will be 125 x 125. I’ll announce the winners in a few days. Sound good? Let’s try it!
