You’d be crazy *not* to advertise here

Want to advertise on a site made up almost entirely of deviant misfits with lots of extra money?  Of course you do. Text ads start at $100 a month. That’s probably half of what you spend on vodka, and twice as beneficial.

Most of our advertisers are fellow writers, artists, and lovable eccentrics.  Go visit them now because they are full of magic and they pay to keep this site running.  Email us at advertising@thebloggess.com if you want in.

TheBloggess.com gets millions of page views a month, and is ranked as one of the top blogs in America.  We don’t understand it either.

If you want to send me free junk I almost certainly won’t write about it.

Products I won’t write about: Coupons, cleaning supplies, stuff that makes me do math.

Things I might write about:  Victorian books about diseases, things that make me wonder what the hell they are, badly taxidermied animals wearing clothing, potent potables.

My address is: TheBloggess.com   /   14546 Brook Hollow Blvd. #400   /   San Antonio TX, 78232

(That’s just a PO Box, burglars.  It’s not my house.  Nice try though.  Also, I only check that box twice a year at best, so please don’t send me any meat or live kittens.)

Normal people should stop reading now but here’s my media kit for marketing professionals who want to advertise here but who need to convince their boss that I’m more than just a dangerous psychopath:

About Jenny: Jenny is a columnist, blogger and #1 NYT best-selling author.  Her personal blog (www.thebloggess.com) is extremely popular, averaging millions of page views a month.   She was recognized by the Nielsen ratings as one of the Top 50 Most Powerful Mom Bloggers, who named her part of the Power Pack.  She’s been featured on Gawker, Salon.com, Mashable, Babble, The London Times, The Washington Post, People, O Magazine, CNN, Time Magazine, The Today Show, and a Houston Press cover story recently called her “a local – if not national - treasure”.  MSNBC calls her an “internet rockstar” and Forbes repeatedly lists thebloggess.com as one of their Top 100 Websites for Women, and Katie Couric calls her “Hilarious.” She is a repeated finalist (and an occasional winner) in the Weblog awards for Best Writing, Most Humorous Writer, Best Design, Blog of the Year, and Lifetime Acheivement. She was recently named The Huffington Posts’s Greatest Person of the Day and has fooled many people into thinking she’s very important.  She is a sought-after speaker, and has hundreds of thousands of twitter followers, including Ellen DeGeneres, the Today Show, Barack Obama and many more.  Her first book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir, is an award-winning #1 NYT best-seller and spent more than half a year on the NYT best-seller list.

Disclosure: I occasionally use affiliate links if I’m going to write about something anyway, but I’m always honest in my opinions and most of the affiliate links are for ridiculous things no sane person would ever buy (life-sized bears, million dollar war planes, horrible things people should avoid, my book, etc.)  Any money made goes back into keeping the blog running, so if you do buy a $700 life-sized bear through an affiliate link I thank you profusely.  And I question your sanity.  And I’d like to borrow it.  (The bear, that is.  Not your sanity.)
