More than getting the "30 Day Shred" results, I want to prove to myself that I can stick with a specific routine for 30 whole days. The Live Well Colorado Get Movin challenge is coming to an end, and while I have made it every day so far, getting 30 minutes of SOME activity in, I want to keep that going, and prove that I can do something I plan to do for 30 whole days.
If you wanna join the challenge, I have an accountability group set up on Facebook you are welcome to join. Click the link to request it, and I will approve you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/diejilliandie/
Secondly I want to talk to you about Adproval. I was once a huge fan of Passionfruit Ads. I used them and loved them, until one day. I had purchased an ad on another blog that I didn't realize was already booked for a few months. Since I wanted to spend my money on something that would be seen before the end of the year, I asked the blogger for a refund. She emailed Passionfruit and waited. Then a few days later I emailed Passionfruit and waited. Then she did again. And she called them. And together we basically harassed them to get a freaking response. Their customer service was HORRIBLE! FINALLY I got my money back, so I was happy, but it didn't leave a very good taste in my mouth.
Then a few weeks after that, Passionfruit rolled out their new program, where you have to pay $9 a month for their services. I am not a big blog. There are times where I don't MAKE $9 a month. So this is ridiculous. I didn't know what to do. I could manage my own ads, but the service is SO convenient that I didn't want to lose that, I just didn't want to feel like I was being ripped off to keep it.
Thats when I read a blog about Adproval. I don't remember who (sorry!!) but I looked into it and I fell in LOVE. It is what Passionfruit used to be. They take a small cut of your profits, but no monthly fees. AND better than Passionfruit, you get PAID the same day you approve an ad, no waiting! And it goes into your bank account, rather than PayPal, which I feel like is where money goes to not get used unless it's on the internet… I don't love PayPal…
Anyhoo, that sold me enough to switch right on over. Setting up was a breeze (albeit slightly different than Passionfruit, so if you switch and have questions, feel free to ask me), and importing the ads I already have was easy too. It has really been a seamless transition. Except one thing. Setting up my account through Amazon with the site. COMPLETELY user error on my part (#poundimamoron…) but the OWNER emailed me the other day to see what was up. He noticed I had an ad that was purchased that I didn't accept yet, and I told him my payment part hasn't been set up yet and he went to WERK! Emailing me back right away, troubleshooting, helping me discover that I am the problem lol, and offering to check it in a couple days to make sure everything is on the right track. I mean HOLY CUSTOMER SERVICE BATMAN!!! I can not even tell you how happy I am with Adproval so far. Erhmagerd.
My point is, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STICK WITH PASSIONFRUIT! If their new system makes you feel like you are being used, SWITCH! Scared?? Ask me! I can help you!
****Adproval has nothing to do with this. They don't even know I wrote it. No compensation, no nothin. I am just so happy with it. So happy. ****
I just felt like it needed to be said. There are some awesome tools out there for bloggers, free-ish tools that we love and get used to. I take personal offense when these tools take advantage of our naiveté and basically screw us. Not cool!
Thinking of switching? Doing 30 Day Shred? Have a dog? Lets chat!
