Advertise on My Websites - Yes If the Ad and the Money Are Right!

I receive quite a few e-mails like the following from various people wanting to advertise on my many websites.

    Subject: Advertising on your website

    Hello, I came across your Website and was wondering if I would be able to purchase some space with targeted content and a few links with anchor text on your site.

    Thank you,
This was my reply to the above e-mail:

    Hello Niki:

    Thank you for your interest in advertising on my website.

    First, I have no idea which of my websites you are referring to.

    Second, I do partner with certain people who want to advertise on my websites.

    For example, just today someone called and offered me $150 to advertise on my Squidoo Mother's Day webpage. All I had to do was change the link that previously went to Wikipedia to a website selling flowers. And the client only wanted the link until the day after Mothers Day. So I happily accepted.

    And if you check the Inspiration to Help You Enjoy More Leisure webpage on my The Joy of Not Working website, you will see a link for "blackjack" for which I am being paid $130 for the year. And if you check my
    Fun Things to Do When You Retire webpage on The Retirement Cafe, you will find a link for bingo games for which I am also being paid around $130 for the year.

    However, someone recently offered $150 a year each for 4 text-based ads (for a total of $600) on two homepages of my retirement websites
    How to Retire Happy and The Joy of Being Retired and I rejected the offer because I did not want any text-based ads for casinos or gambling on the home pages.

    So if you want to make an offer for any ads, tell me which website, the particular webpage, the nature of the ad, and the maximum that you will pay.

    In short, the answer is yes if the ad and the money are right!

    Many thanks and so long for now,
