Whilst I've maintained my editorial independence and always will do I took the sage advice of try to make money on the chin. I feel that if I can earn something by my writing and be sponsored then this is not 'selling out' it is an opportunity to help the household income for now.
For now, we are facing hard times. Not because there should be but massive cuts are coming in the public sector which will have devastating effects on the economy for a few years. With my sensible head on my brain overrules my heart. My heart longs to stay pure. And I think I will in my writing and content.
I might not get one sponsor/advertiser - to be clear I will charge a monthly fee to 'buy some space' - I'm hoping for such things as the V&A and fashion exhibitions but you never know I might have to settle for BHS!
Do let me know your views after all I like discourse and opinions. Am I foolish to think companies will sponsor me to reach out to you? Is it silly to think about financial gain rather than the purity of staying true to the spirit of blogging? Am I a *@$%%*& (fill in the blanks) Will any form of advertising *"%@ you off? Will I be taking a tumble........
