Admit it. You have, haven't you??
I've been vocal in the past about being anti-ads around here. Meaning, my goal is to never do ads on Rancid Raves. It's one of the reasons why I keep the design simple, why I stay with Blogger and why I have no special URL. I don't really care if others do ads, quite frankly. For me, it just works better if I am free of advertisements. I don't want my voice diluted and I never want to feel pressure for hits. If I decide to do a book club, for example, I don't want to hear a cynic declare I am doing it for traffic. Um, no - I would be doing that because it is FUN. This blog is a hobby and it's primarily for me. I'd like to keep it that way.
However, I am not opposed to being paid for blogging - I like the sound of coins rattling in my pencil cup as much as the next guy. Therefore, when I saw that 451Press was looking for a writer on the subject of breastfeeding, I jumped on it like a duck on a June bug. Okay, actually, I applied for the position, then waited anxiously to see if I got it. Whatever. So, with much excitement and anticipation, I am proud to announce that I will be writing about my breasts and their many accomplishments over at Nursing Your Kids.
I am hoping to get a variety of readers on this new site - it seems that all too often, if a person isn't actually breastfeeding, he/she is hesitant to share an opinion. I am hoping this site will allow for a space where an open dialogue is encouraged. Perhaps, we can all learn a little bit from each other.
