Who doesn't like a deal?

I had 51 missed calls when I walked into my office this morning.

And I think I pulled a muscle in somewhere in my abdomen. Which is better than last night when I started to convince myself I had appendicitis with my appendix on the wrong side of my body.

I feel a little sick and a lot tired.

And, to top it all off, we think there is a dead mouse hiding somewhere in my co-workers' office.

(That is not a misplaced apostrophe. I have two co-workers. They share an office.)

So, I hope your Monday is at least as awesome as mine. Though, really, I hope yours is MORE awesome because today already kind of sucks and all I want to do is go back to bed, pull the covers up over my head and not come out until Friday.

Anyway, sorry that I totally turned this into a whiny Monday post when that wasn't my intention AT ALL.

Instead, I wanted to talk about some good things.

Like, moving forward with The Blog.

Many of you know that I am spending four weeks in Honduras this winter volunteering with Honduras Child Alliance. I am super duper excited about this adventure and can't wait to get there and have some fun while doing some good for a little tiny corner of the world.

Of course, trips like this aren't free and I am definitely not rich by any stretch of the imagination.

So I've decided that, in order to raise some extra funds, I'm going to get more serious about advertising here in my world.

Are you trying to build up your blog?

Do you have an Etsy store or a home-based business you'd like to promote?

Selling a book, a product, or a service?

Blog advertising is a GREAT way to go because there is a chance to be seen by so many eyes across the internet.

And here at A Peek at Karen's World, there are hundreds of visits per day from all over the place. Hundreds of visitors that might just be interested in YOU.

For now, there are three different ad sizes to get you started:

Large: 200X300

Medium: 200X200

Small: 125X125

The ads will run for 30 days at a time, right over in the top of my side bar. This is premium blog space, yo.

And, the first 5 sponsors get 25% off any size ad by using the promo code: KARENSWORLD.

AND, all sponsors will be featured in a post right here on The Blog, too.

It's super easy, plus you're helping support a great cause. Just click here to go to my advertising page and find the links.

Any questions?

You are awesome. And if you share this post, you'll be even awesomer!


  1. Now that's a creative way to raise money. i get requests to place ads on my site all the time. I should send them your direction.

  2. That is a great way to raise some extra money! What a great idea. Hmm, I think you might be on to something.

  3. I love that you're doing this to raise money for a worthy cause!! I meant to ask you a question on your latest goals post - have you noticed a change by going gluten free? My sister and I swore our mother was gluten intolerant and when she finally had testing, nope! Just curious if it's making a difference. I hope so!

  4. A dead mouse is not good they smell and are gross so I hope if there is a dead mouse there you don't have to go near

    My Monday was good my Tuesday is shaping up better and my Wednesday will be busy as per usual

  5. Good for you Karen! Have you looked at BlogHer at all? I know they take a lot of the guesswork out of advertising for me!

    And all the rest - sounds like a suck-fest of a Monday. Hope the rest of your week gets so much better!
