Long Time, No Write

Heads up, this post may contain affiliate links and any sales made through such links will reward me a small commission.

Hello readers! My regulars have probably noticed I haven’t posted in a while, and I was right in the middle of a trip report!!!

The reason is that I ran out of storage on my plan with my blog host. That means I can’t post any more pictures.

The cost to increase to the next level would be triple what I am paying now.

I have been thinking for a while about maybe starting to try to monetize this blog. I would probably do that with ads and affiliate links. The links are where I talk about a certain product and it has a link and if you follow that link and make a purchase I earn a commission. It does not increase the cost to you.

I am not sure if I’m up to the task of managing two blogs, as I have a breastfeeding blog as well. In this blog I just write and post so it doesn’t take a lot of time. On my professional blog I work on it full time. There can be so much more to blogging than just writing.

What I’m trying to say is this decision is not a done deal.

I did want to know what you all think of me monetizing this blog. Would you hate seeing ads or me having affiliate links? Or would that be okay in exchange for the information I provide and the awesome stories I tell?

If I can’t post any pictures I will stop writing anything new.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
