Scrolling through my Twitter feed recently, I saw that one of my blogging pals (Kim at Let Me Start by Saying) was participating in some sort of ad purchase/ad swap hosted at byaimee.com.
Ad SWAP, you say? Well, there’s certainly money in the ODNT budget for that. Still less than a year old, the blog is not exactly getting ready to hire an assistant for me anytime soon. (Wouldn’t that be awesome though? I would never clean a cat box, balance a checkbook or paint my own toenails again!) The most income we’ve generated thus far is the cash prize we won last month on ‘The Day Things Got Hairy at Disney World” which I promptly spent on a ketchup costume.
“If purchasing a full-sized Ketchup Bottle Costume with the first money generated by this blog doesn’t fully convince you of my intelligence and professionalism, then nothing will.”
Believe me when I say that purchasing the ketchup costume IS sinking the money back into the blog. I expect to get a lot of mileage out of that costume … plus I also plan to wear it to a friend’s wedding in the fall. So, duh, it’s practically paid for itself.
But back to the ad swapping …
I took a look at the linked pages of the other potential ad swappers and saw their version of this information so, being the sheep that I am, it’s what I’m listing first.
The ODNT Stats *

All numbers are approximate … and growing daily

What is ODNT all about? We write about all kinds of things around here. Nothing is sacred. We’re usually trying to make you laugh, but we also participate in writing contests and talk about the daily dumbassery of life. Which isn’t always funny. Don’t let the blog name scare you. There’s an interesting backstory.
Why should you advertise/swap with me? Easy. Because I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. It would be ridiculously simple to take advantage of me, grab what you want and trade me a handful of magic beans. Plus, I’m a nice person. And a mom of two. With a cat. And a crippling penchant for cheese. Fine. And Johnny Depp, too.
But there’s no pressure around here. We fly by the seats of our collective pants every day. If you want to trade spots, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If not, I will bid you ‘Good Day.’
