Within Posts and Homepage
Sidebar Ad Options
In-Post Banner Ads
The in-post banner ad is placed on individual posts below the full content of the post. See here for an example of an individual post – your ad will go below my signature and will be in a single spot on the homepage below the House Tour and Project Gallery sections. This spot includes both archived and new posts – meaning your ad shows up on 800+ posts on this site. The image size must be 600 pixels wide by 74 pixels tall. Only one ad is available in this spot each month!
Where does each sidebar ad go?
The “Feature Ad” and “Short Stack” ads are placed under the Sponsors & Affiliates section of the sidebar. These ads are stacked on top of each other, and the Feature Ad is always placed above any Short Stack ads.
The “Small Series” ads are placed just under the list of Highlights section in the sidebar. Readers look at this area all the time, and these ads rotate with each page load.

What do readers like most? Snazzy pictures. They get more eyeballs than an ad of written words. But you knew that already – if you’re advertising on this site, it’s pretty much a given that you’re one smart cookie! If you have any trouble coming up with an ad and need a little help with design, I’ll be happy to help you for a small fee. Just shoot me an email.
Ad Rotation / Shuffle
The order of the “Short Stack” and “Small Series” ads shuffle with each page load. This is done so that any ad gets optimum exposure regardless of when the ad was purchased.
Advertising Options NOT Offered
Getting creative to reach a new audience is fantastic, but my readers are my top priority. As a blog reader myself, there are certain advertising types that I prefer not to see. Therefore, I do not offer the following types of paid content or ad placement. Please do not send requests for these types; they will not be answered.
- Sidebar text links
- Embedded text links within existing posts
- Requests for “guest posts” that contain links to a product or service (this is considered advertising – please consider purchasing an In-Post Banner ad instead)
- “solo ads” or email distribution lists
- Videos or pop-up ads
The Ugly Duckling House reserves the right to modify or add to the above policies at any time.
