So it's no secret that things here are pretty fucking awful. My husband needs dental work, my dog probably needs surgery, I missed a day of work due to the sinus/ear infection that JUST. WON'T. END., and finances are grim. A very nice person kindly donated enough for Isis's second packet of antibiotics (I was only able to pick up the first of two cards of pills in the course the day of the needle biopsy, the cytology results of which are still "pending," DAMN it), but we still have a problem in that I spent our entire "reserve" at the vet on Monday.
I have three jobs. I'm doing everything I can to help my family up out of this pit. It's just not enough.
The only thing I've got that could even potentially be marketable is this-here blog, so with that in mind I am holding an ad-space sale. The prices below reflect a substantial mark-down from what I've sold ad space for in the past, and if you want to buy an ad but can't afford anything listed below, e-mail me and we can probably work something out:
Text link only, thirty characters including spaces:
One week: $5
One month: $15
One year: $150 $100
Small box, text and/or graphics (the approximate size of the Clever Girls Collective badge on the left sidebar), shout-out in a post, and one promotional tweet:
One week: $10
One month: $30
One year: $300 $200
Skyscraper, text, graphics, and/or Flash (the approximate size of the Frugal Dad ad on the left sidebar), dedicated post, and three promotional tweets spread out over the course of a month:
One week: $20
One month: $60
One Year: $500 $350
With each of the above, you provide the content, or for a 10% surcharge I can put something together for you. If you don't have a blog, you can always advertise your Twitter or Pinterest URL, or use the space to promote a cause you care about. If you don't give a crap about having an ad for any purpose, donations and/or retweets/shout-outs to generate traffic to this post are gratefully accepted because I have no pride left. GO!
