Remember a few weeks ago, ok, back in April, I was talking about a “big deal”? Well, if you happen to read my other sites you would have seen evidence of my new advertising deal on As the Garden Grows first.
Well, the two sites are listed as Glam Network blogs. I believe that Glam has only accepted about 300 blogs into their network at this time so I’m quite honored that not one, but two of my sites are listed there. The sites have been part of the Glam network for over a month now.
Millions of people visit the Glam network each month in order to get the latest news about fashion and beauty related trends and sales, take quizzes, read about celebrities, enter contests, and read about issues related to women that are written by women. Obviously this is a very female oriented network and it’s fast becoming the top womens network on the net. You can even join the site, create a profile and a blog if you choose, and interact with other Glam Network members. I’m listed as dragonden over there if you join.
Can you see why I thought it was a big deal that my sites are listed there?
Not only are my sites listed, but the rss feeds for my sites are also listed so if someone clicks on my listing on the Glam network they can read my latest posts, subscribe to my rss feed, and hopefully end up visiting the site to leave me a comment or at least view the rest of the site. I can also submit some of my articles each week and if chosen they’ll be promoted on the front page of glam for a week.
As part of my association with Glam, I’ve also been accepted into their advertising network. See the ads in the right sidebar? What do you think of them?
I think this site is read equally by men and women, whereas the ads that you’ll see in the right sidebar are geared more towards women than men, so I don’t expect that everyone will love them. However, as ads go, I think that these are of a very high quality.
Keep an eye on the ads because you’ll learn of new contests and promotions through them. I’ve noticed that sometimes that ads promote new movies coming out in theaters or ones coming out on DVD too. I’ve also found that some of the ads are interactive. There’s one for Scarlet Johansson’s active wear that lets you see the items of clothing better as you move your mouse over the ad.
What I hope to get out of being part of the Glam network is an increase in readership. That would be fantastic!
I do hope that some of you will explore the Glam Network as there are some great articles there, other great blogs and tons of tips and deals.
Now, if I could get accepted into blogads that would be cool too.
