I need a break


I've been a bit sick since I got back from Mexico and haven't gotten much better. Don't worry, it's not swine flu, just seemed to have picked up something that my stomach was not so fond of. Anyway, it's been keeping me away from the computer and I haven't been able to keep up on all your blogs or even update my facebook or twitter. I have emails that I haven't answered, facebook requests that are piling up, and posts half written but I just have no effort when I'm on the computer to do all those things. Other than getting back to our style.ish photography inquiries, I'm taking a little break from it all so that I can get healthy and hopefully be back to normal next week!

Thanks for all your comments this week, every single one of them has made me feel better. :)

On a side note: I'm thinking about offering ad space on my blog and was wondering if any of you would be interested? I definitely do not blog to make money so I would have very reasonable rates. I just figure that since my site gets a pretty good amount of traffic now, it would be beneficial for small business owners and I think readers would like it as well. I sure do, as I click on those ads on other blogs all the time. I buy a lot from etsy shops and small business owners and really like that I can support them rather than a big box store. If there is enough interest, I will stop running BlogHer ads. BlogHer worked for me when my blog was just starting out and I wanted to feel like part of a bigger community but I feel like I have been able to build my own community and would love to offer stores and products to my readers that I love and that I feel are fit for I am Style-ish and not have ads chosen for me.

My Google Analytics tell me that I am Style-ish has been averaging over 43,000 visits a month (average about 1,400 visits a day) and FeedBurner tells me I currently have over 1,400 subscribers. If you are interested in advertising and you'd like more information about specific statistics just let me know, I'd be happy to share. If you are wanting more information on rates, email me and I'll get back to you within the next week.

See you all next week when I will hopefully be refreshed and feeling back to 100%!

  2. Aw, I really hope you feel better soon!!! Lots of fluids to stay refreshed and someone once told me to load up on ice cream - funnily enough all the extra calories did the trick. Now, take it with a grain of salt, don't want to make you worse :) xx
