Frequently Asked Questions

  • "When will my ad appear?"
    When you get the email that says your ad has been approved it is already appearing on the site. You will get another email when your ad has expired which will give you an opportunity to renew.
  • "Can I buy an ad which includes a blog post about my business? You know, a Sponsored Post, or a Featured Sponsor kind of thing?"
    Nope, because I think those kinds of posts are misleading and dishonest - and here's why.
  • "I have more questions."
