New Poll

I have been seeing a HUGE trend in blogs adding sponsors. I was wondering how my readers feel about that.  I really would appreciate if you vote! I have added a poll to the right side bar.  
I have mixed feelings on the subject. 
 Help me gain some clarity :)

btw, I did sew some last night. nothing to show yet...'cause it was mainly a bakeshop quilt. I really want to make a tutorial for Easter here. Will my idea come to fruition? here's hoping.

To me it's the content that drives me to blogs... I'll visit you no matter what... I say, go for it... Who knows you might have fun with it!

:-D)

I also visit for the content of the blog. I hate when things are jumping around on the blog or even really fancy layouts that make it hard to view the actual post. Love, love the jelly rolls...better then the food ones! ;o)

I read you via google reader. So, I don't see the sponsors anyhow... if it makes you a bit of $$, it doesn't bother me. If I do click on your link (like today to make a comment), then I would not want any type of those dreaded hover text things that pop up or annoy you. I don't think any blogs really do that, however. Good Luck!!

I say GO FOR IT!! I think the sponsors benefit you and the visitors. All the hard work that goes into producing an informative and beautiful blog should get you all the possible rewards available. Thank you for having a great blog!

Love the happy picture. I was happy to vote if it helps you make up your mind. I'd still come visit you too.

I hope the bunny reads this....Mr. Bunny, do you see all of Vicki's treats sitting so pretty there? Hop on over to my house!

And Vicki....here's hoping your tutorial comes hopping down the bunny trail, too!

I HATE it when I see sponsors. Hate Hate HATE it! I think they're ...well, never mind. And truthfully, I've unsubbed from a few blogs that have added sponsors, 'cause it's annoying that my reader time is wasted by scrolling through "sponsor giveaway this" and sponsor whatever that".

I read your blog in Google Reader, so I wouldn't see any ads even if you did have them. In all honesty, I use a tool that keeps most ads from displaying and I've become completely blind to the rest of them so it makes no difference to me if there are ads or not. The best (in fact, almost guaranteed) way to get me to visit sponsors is to have an informative blog post about something at one of them. Something like "There's this great quilt pattern with a really neat technique, let me tell you all about it...now, you can purchase it at <insert link here." I might not buy, but I would probably click.
