New Advertising Policies and Rates for 2016

Want to advertise on Not Before Coffee, a site that’s followed by a bunch of people learning to embrace their own awkwardness and who happen to have extra money to help support my coffee and Pinterest projects addictions? Sure you do!

Text Ads 

Text ads start at $25 a month. You probably spend at least twice that at Starbucks or on beer in a month, am I right? Plus, it’s healthier.

Many of my advertisers are fellow writers, artists, and downright awesome, creative people. Go visit them NOW. Seriously! They are SO entertaining, AND they help pay for my coffee and Pinterest addictions. Email me at if you want in that special list of people I love and who support me over to your right, in the sidebar.

Not Before Coffee has been around since July 2007 and isn’t going anyplace soon. It’s my own therapeutic website that serves as a brain dump for whatever is going through my head at any given moment and a place where I love discussing important issues and current events with my readers. It’s much cheaper than drugs or a shrink.

Product Reviews & Sponsored/Guest Posts

If you want to send me free stuff, I’ll be honest, I probably won’t write about it. Sorry, I’ve tried reviews before and frankly, my time is worth more than the hours it takes me to test out and write about a $10 product. It just doesn’t fit into my hectic schedule anymore. However, you are MORE than welcome to provide a guest post for me to post for you. The rate for guest/sponsored posts is $100. Posts may be emailed to for consideration. Payment must be received by Paypal prior to posting and once your post is up, it’s up. It won’t ever be removed. That requires too much time and tracking for me to worry about. Paypal payments may be made here:

Media Stuff

Disclosure: I DO occasionally use affiliate links. If I’m going to write about something I like, I am going to include a link so that I may earn a small commission off the recommendation. I am always honest in my opinions. Any money made goes back into keeping my blog running, which happens to include my addiction to coffee and Pinterest projects.
