The mini Company
Keynote - the HIVE Berlin, May 25 2013 (A short summary)
Vosgesparis - Amsterdam based Interior Design blog. Founded in 2007 and written by Desiree. A daily inspiration for ideas on decorating with minimal color and maximum style. Next to Vosgesparis I blog about my own city at Amsterdamnext.com and occasionally do some styling work and writing for magazines.
From Ideas to a new concept
Some pictures of my home. For about 2 years I transformed room after room of my apartment. Thinking on how to pay the extra bills I thought of offering bannerspace on my blog.
Is my blog ready to accept ads.
I was pretty unprepared by then and learned a lot along the way by reading lots of articles and talking with fellow bloggers. Looking back at it I think it would have been easier if I knew some things before. Next to this visual presentation that I showed at the HIVE along my talk, I added some extra notes Enjoy!
Is your blog ready
Why would an advertiser choose your blog? - TAKING CARE OF YOUR BLOG - Find original blog material, post at least 3 times a week, be personal now and then. Take a look at your blog, what is the first impression? Take off unnecessarily things, are your links working? Etc...
