As I’ve always made clear, this site does generate a small amount of revenue. Most of this is reinvested in the licensing fee for my images (£500 per year) the massive cost of hiring a VPS server to handle all the traffic I get (£600-800 per year) and other costs too, such as the outlay cost from purchasing the Genesis framework for WordPress ($60) the theme this site runs on ($30) and so on.
As such, I do choose to add adverts to my site – just to make it all that bit more affordable and realistic to keep the site up and running! I am very selective with my adverts, I choose to only add nice looking adverts from brands Kate Middleton wears, that way they’re of interest and aren’t too intrusive for my visitors!
I also get asked to review items from time to time. I only choose to accept free review pieces from companies who I feel relate to Kate in some way, and as such, who my visitors would like to learn more about. I will always give my honest opinion when reviewing and I wouldn’t accept a product if I was briefed what to write before hand.
