PR / Advertising / Sponsors

I am a media-friendly writer and this is an ad-friendly site, provided the opportunities align with the tone of Let Me Start By Saying.

MEDIA

If you would like to discuss topics that I cover on the blog or Social Media, please contact me though the form at the bottom of the page. I am comfortable in front of a camera and happy to be a part of interesting, intelligent, humorous dialogue. I’m also open to print opportunities as well.

My experience includes a clip on The Dr Oz Show, an interview on HLNtv, being on a panel for the HuffPost LIVE discussion about Elf Shaming (for my holiday-focused site ElfShaming.com), and more. See all of my media experience and where my work has been published HERE.

I am a freelance writer for sites such as NickMom and The Huffington Post, essayist, author, and award-winning blogger. See more about where I write HERE.

Ad Design Tips:
- If you do not already have an image the size of the Ad Spot that you want, you can easily create one on a free photo/image editing site like PicMonkey.com.  Simply resize your image to the dimensions listed & adjust the design as desired.

- It helps to have your store/product/service/blog etc name in a clear, large font and a short tagline that makes readers want to click on your ad. If you need help with this, please let me know.

Here’s what my Advertisers had to say:

I thought I might generate a little traffic for my humor blog with an ad on Kim’s website.  What I didn’t realize is that she ALSO promotes my posts to her Facebook and Twitter followers every week – which has brought HUGE traffic to my site!  When I saw the results, I immediately offered to marry Kim and carry her babies.  Still waiting for her response – in the meantime, I’m still advertising with her!

Go for the Sweet Spot! Kim is a generous and creative promoter,
and manages to make the process both easy and fun for her lucky sponsors.
Kim’s intimate and honest rapport with readers
lends true value to sponsor shout outs.
As the car dealer always wants me to say: “Highly Satisfied.”

Let Me Start By Saying was the first blog I ever advertised on,
and I’m so glad  I took the chance. Buying an ad spot
on this blog was a great decision for me.
It was easy, affordable, and has definitely
brought more attention to my Etsy Store.
Kim is always finding ways to get my store
more attention on  Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
It was absolutely worth the investment!  Thank you, Kim!

As a newer blogger-having my ad on your page
helped me drive more new readers to my blog. 
And your weekly promotions were great too…

Placing an ad with Let Me Start By Saying
was a very easy and reasonably priced!
