Blog Sponsorship - why I actually like it.

I started blogging about books for the same reasons many other bloggers out there did: I love books, I saw there was a big blogging community devoted to reading and promoting books and authors and I figured I could try my luck at it as well. I have never thought about any financial gain connected with my blogging, I just wanted to have fun. Therefore, when I was approached via email about a possibility of blog sponsorship I was flabbergasted that would consider me 'important' enough to sponsor. And so far it has been great. I am not making any huge money all of a sudden, but I partake in contests for the sponsored blogs where many cute things can be won, one of those things being professional looking business cards which I would love to have but I simply can't afford them. And lastly, I love the fact that this sponsorship doesn't require of me to placate my blog with ads all over the place. UPrinting's ads are unobtrusive and fit the background nicely so they're not glaring at me every time in log in.
