When I started publicly blogging last year, I was pretty naive. I had no idea that some people made money off this stuff. Advertising. Sponsorships. Book deals.
Clearly, I had never heard of the Pioneer Woman.
I’ve never written here with the ultimate intent of making money. First and foremost, I do this for me and for my kids. However, I have to admit, the idea of monetizing something I spend a fair amount of time doing does have its allure.
My only problem? Of the various unsolicited pitches I’ve gotten from different companies, none have appealed to me. They just don’t seem to represent me, or what I feel comfortable promoting.
So I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. I’ve determined that maybe the best tactic is to approach brands that I want to work with, and sell my value to them. With that, I’ve written a few pitch letters to various companies.
I’m thinking this kind of partnership would really be a win-win for both sides.
I just hope they realize what a good deal it would be for them.

If I was Acme, XYZ Beer company or the National Bacon Council, I’d be banging on your door right now.
You are awesome!
So, I take it you don’t work for any of those companies, Alison?
Man, I wish I did, just for your vlog.
This is brilliant. Now I have to go get XYZ brewing company to watch this.
Oh, you totally rocks these vlogs, girl! And I have to say I’m right on board with the brewing company promo, and not just because we’re roomies at BlogHer! OK, maybe it’s that.
And bacon? Dear God, please can I be on board with that? If you could see my freezer right now…
So, are you saying you won’t mind if I wear my Bud Light Lime t-shirt non-stop for the three days we’re at BlogHer? 🙂
Influential about bacon! My hubby would worship you, he lives and breathes bacon 😉
Great vlog 😉
I hear you! I swear, bacon is the 5th food group around these parts. We might not live and breathe it, but it’s pretty close.
Wow, that’s bacon really bringing home the bacon. Is that, like, cannibalism in Baconville, you think? Let me know if the sponsors are knocking down your door – I’ll hop on the beer band wagon in a heartbeat.
PS: Is that the new microwave oven?
You always crack me up, Nami. Cannibalism in Baconville. Yes. Definitely.
And that is the new microwave… er, bacon maker. It gets lots of use.
I think you should target your efforts and focus solely on bacon and other pork products.
