Hey, reader! You’ve been around here awhile (Can’t believe my 4 year blogging anniversary came and went last month!). You’ve got kids of your own, maybe a couple, maybe a bunch, maybe a home and a husband. Maybe you’re a young woman, smartly starting to learn about motherhood before you conceive. Maybe M+BL has helped you in some way, or you’ve learned something from us, followed along on our adventures in the kitchen and out in the world, and hopefully had a few laughs along the way. You’ve watched us grow like you watched your family grow. Now, hopefully, you feel like part of the M+BL family – and we’re happy about that.
Since you’ve been hanging around, this year you may have noticed something different. We didn’t just redesign the website – we took down all ad network ads, where I could not control what type of ads were being shown. We still have one google ad that I can’t control, but it only shows stuff that you have been googling, so it’s not gonna show you anything you wouldn’t want to see anyway, but eventually the google ad will come down too.
For a long time, I let the ads on my site because they were the only stream of revenue I had, it was a conscious compromise and since that day I have been working hard to build a site that could fund itself without having to rely on ads. Even with my ebook sales, the ad revenue made up a large portion of money coming in and helped my ability to run the website. But too often the brand in the ads wasn’t something I wanted to support. Even though it was painful to lose that income, I feel that it is more important to maintain the integrity and positive energy of my website.
While I still have my ebook sales as income, that revenue fluctuates each month and I would love to have a chunk of money in savings as working capital so I can quit operating on a month to month basis.
So I am doing my own version of an ongoing Kickstarter campaign and I am open to receiving gifts from my loyal fans and readers to help me create a savings fund for working capital and to fund some big projects I have in mind, that need working capital to come to fruition. At any time, if you so feel moved, you can support M+BL by sending a paypal donation.
If Mama and Baby Love has helped you, inspired you, comforted you, or you just plain like and enjoy what Mama and Baby Love represents, you have the opportunity to send energy back to me to help me continue my work, continue my passion of sending love and light into the world and helping to support and heal mothers.
If you would like to invest in Mama and Baby Love and work I am doing in the world simply click here.
Gifting to Mama and Baby Love will ensure that I will be able to continue to run a successful online business and that I will not have to depend on large, low-integrity corporations to fund my work.
Or if you don’t want to give a straight up gift, you can always buy one of my ebooks (or become and affiliate and earn 50% of sales when you promote my ebooks) or book a private Skype consultation with me to help support M+BL.
Everything – gifts and business revenue – goes to helping fun M+BL business projects. It might be working capital to pay sub-contractors, production costs, and get projects off the ground.
My greatest joy is to be of service to my family and of service to mothers around the world. Thank you for supporting Mama and Baby Love and helping to make my dreams come true.
Lots of Love,
