It is preferred advertisements follow the site design by adding the ad to this box. If the advertisement is added to the box and sent to me, there is no setup fee.
If the advertiser requires the ad not be in the box but the advertisement is approximately 190×150, there also may not be a setup fee.
An hourly setup fee will apply for any advertisement that is located anywhere other than the right bar or that in any way needs custom work.

Sponsored Product Review Post
The following is the minimum requirements for me to do a product review.
- Minimum $50 fee (Assuming a post takes 1 hour. See Custom Work below for costs beyond 1 hour.)

- 1 free product (or software license) to give away to my readers.
Custom work is done for an hourly fee of $50.
This fee will be billed in 1/2 hour minimums: So 10 minutes = 1/2 hour or $25. 1 hour 10 minutes = 1 and 1/2 hours or $75).
* All prices negotiable and I am very flexible and I understand every ad or link request is unique.
+ All out of context advertisements will be refused or just ignored.
^ Out of context links are black hat and are detrimental to my blog and hence they will not be allowed. Links that are on topic and contribute to the content are white hat and preferred.
