I need your vote!

Dear readers of It's all about the spin... I need your help.

As you know and may have noticed, I've been posting a number of sponsored posts with increasing frequency in my efforts to get more moolah. But I don't want to alienate you, dear reader, so I'm thinking of doing something along these lines...

Since I have my own dot com address now, I am now looking for a web hosting provider and will open house at soon. Soon when? As in when I can find the time to do so. LOL. But definitely by the end of the year, I will have sorted this out. New year opening? I'm quite inclined to that. And I will endeavour to keep the paid posts there to a minimum. All paid posts will go onto, except of course, for those paid posts that exclude websites. Heh. My escape clause.

But until that happens, I wanna ask you, dear reader, do you think:

a) I should close off the comments option on the paid posts (I don't read the sponsored posts anyway, so no need to comment)
b) Leave the comments open, but not award any THHC points for chups there (yeah, you shouldn't give out points for sponsored posts)
c) Leave things as they are right now (I like 'em just the way it is!)
d) Anything else you might wanna suggest (short of asking me to donate moolah to you. LOL!)

I look forward to your comments and votes!

U r robbing my Hug-hug Points! *bawls*

J/k... :p

Aye to No. 1.

parisb said...

#1 isn't an option because sponsored posts require you to leave it looking just like a normal post i.e. comments open etc. Trust me. I tried it and got a slap on the hand. :P

I vote for C because whether sponsored or not, they are still posts on this blog and deserve hug hug points. :)

p/s and do you need a rec for a host? :)

I'd go for option 2, since you're not supposed to turn off comments (reading parisb's above). we just need to know which is a sponsored post, and more importantly which is not, to CHUP FAST FAST! LOLOL!

I say (b). I do not always comment to ads. But sometimes you may write something in a paid post that I feel motivated to write back.

Really excited about Will have to chop off that padawan braid sooner than I thought.
