I'd love to hear from you!
I try to get to my emails as quickly as possible but sometimes work and weebles slow me down so be patient.
In the meantime, you can check out answers to my most asked questions below to possibly save yourself some wait time.
Can I link to your site or add your button?
Are you kidding?! Yes. A thousand times yes! If you would like to reference one of my articles feel free, just make sure you give credit and a live link back to pregnantchicken.com. Some sneaky fuckers have tried to pass off my writing as their own and my minions find out and make their lives hell. Don't mess with pregnant women, man, they'll mess you up.
You can find a variety of buttons here if you'd like to add it to your site. Thanks, I totally appreciate it!
Can I do a giveaway?
You bet. Here's are the details about setting up a giveaway on Pregnant Chicken.
Can I get the stats for Pregnant Chicken?
Sure, you can find stats on the Burd here.
I just wrote a book, made a video, created an app. Will you read it, watch it, use it then promote it?
Sadly I've had to declare a no book, video, app policy because I have no time to read a cereal box let alone a book (including ebooks). Obviously I don't want to recommend something I haven't read to pregnant women and new parents. I mean what if you've promoted puppy kicking or Gwyneth Paltrow in it? I can't have that on my conscience.
Can I buy ad space?
I only use Google, Lijit and SheBlogs ads because private ads were a pain in the ass to keep track of and I'm about as competent at accounting as I am in Thai kickboxing.
I have a cool product, will you review it?
Sadly, I'm not pregnant anymore and I don't have a newborn, so I don't do reviews because they wouldn't be very relevant. If you've found something that is cool, feel free to pass it along and, if I think it fits somewhere, I'll plunk it in.
Hey dick, I emailed you why aren't you responding?
I know, I suck. Between family and freelance I can get stupid busy at times so bear with me as it may take some time for me to get back to you but I promise I will. I love your emails. Truly.
Can I send post suggestions?
Absolutely! I love getting ideas from you guys so bring it, bitches!
I love your website, who designed it?
Thank you! I designed it and I'm forever grateful when people compliment me on it because it's no small miracle that it's up. I am an HTML idiot that just happens to be a designer.
Would you design my website?
I would love to but I truly don't know what the hell I am doing, plus, I'm already swamped with pay-the-bills work. My site is hosted on squarespace.com and they are fan-tabulous! They aren't free but their templates are really good and their support staff is outstanding – I can't tell you how many tickets I've opened with the subject line "What the hell have I done?!" And they always talk me off the ledge and fix it. They are magical. If you click the link below you can check them out, and if you actually build a site with them they give me some cash. Not bad considering how many people I've told about them for free.
Can I write a guest post for Pregnant Chicken?
Nope, sorry. Only in very unique circumstances have I had guest writers on here. The main reason is if you're not very funny or if I feel you're passing judgement at all, I don't want to put up the post. And the trouble with not wanting to put up a post is that I don't like writing people to tell them I don't like their article or that they aren't funny because who the hell am I to say? (This coming from someone who always screws up "loose" and "lose" and uses m-dashes with reckless abandon) So I just don't do it and save myself the stress.
Will you put up ad links or like to be part of our affiliate program?
Do you have any advice for someone starting a blog?
Yes. Find something you truly love a then do a blog about it. Don't worry about the readers, they will come. Haters are gonna hate so they can suck it.
I wouldn't get too hung up on who's reading and the blogger contests that are out there. It didn't take long for me to realize that they only generate traffic on their blog by getting your friends and family to their site to vote and does dick all for your site. Anything that asks you to put a button on your blog to get votes is doing just that so I'd say just leave it.
Where does the advertising on your site come from?
I do my advertising though Google Ads , Lijit, SheBlogs and I find they are all working out pretty well, although, you need big time traffic to make any money at it. If you have around 200,000 page views a month you make about $400 off of it so I'd keep your day job. The first year the site was up, I made a whopping $22 and I blew it and ordered pizza in celebration.
Can I get in touch with you?
Absolutely! You can reach me at email@example.com
Oprah, you can just call me – you have my number.
