I just finished making this new banner for my blog! What do think? I may fiddle with it in the future, but for now I really like it! You'll also notice that there are some ads on my page now, i.e. Sigma Makeup, Gift Girls, AVON, and soon to come will be OpenSky.

I wanted to talk about these with you all and get your opinions. Do you already have strong opinions about bloggers trying to earn a little money off their blog? Do you have a problem with it? Do you think to yourself "More power to you?" I really want to know what you all think. I am only interested in recommending products to you all that I reallly like. If I can earn a little in the meantime, that's great! It will help me afford to do better reviews and give-a-ways!!! I know I have purchased SO many things based on other bloggers reviews. I personally wouldn't mind them make a small commission off of that.

So let me know what you think, because this isn't just "my" blog. You are a HUGE part of NV Beauty and I want your voice heard! I listen to my beauties and I never want to let you down!

In my opinion, I don't mind the ads - I'm even considering it myself. I think if you can make some money off of your hobby - that's pretty awesome. As long as I don't always get bombarded with ads, I'm totally cool with it.

I really like the new look! Your blog looked nice before, but I love black, white, and grey together. It looks very chic!

I'm fine with ads on people's pages, which I'm sure you knew from looking at mine. LOL! The only time I think it's not okay is if someone is constantly pushing stuff; I like to see other posts outside of what sales are going on. (Although, those are definitely appreciated!)

I felt a little weird pushing my jewelry business at first. I suppose I still do. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to follow my other blog or purchase anything fom me. (I am considering changing my contest rules as well.)

Oh, boy... I am getting off topic here! LOL! I say it's your blog; you do what you feel happy doing! If someone doesn't like it, you tell them to come talk to me! ;)

Love the banner! I don't think anyone will mind the ads, especially since they're on the side. I mean, you don't have to click them if you don't want to.

Thanks ladies! I really appreciate the comments! =)

I like the new look too, it's very clean and simple but classy at the same time! =)

I've got a couple ads on my blog too so guess how I feel about it? lol I agree that as long as things aren't pushed and readers don't start feeling forced/obligated to buy something it shouldn't be a problem. These days we could pretty much all use whatever extra income we can manage to get our hands on.
