Why do I charge for posts?

besides the many benefits to building exposure for sustainable brands...

 I write about sustainability. Sustainably Chic needs an economy to be sustainable {i.e. a paycheck for me}.

I advocate for fair wages for all, and I should be included. Also, it's difficult to create positive change without a roof over your head. 

 I'm offering a service, and it has value. My following has grown to almost 100k in three years, and I've created an audience Google clicks and Facebook boosts don't offer.

I write, take photos and promote your brand, which takes a lot of time and creativity. Technically, I'm paid under minimum wage when all is said and done {I'm okay with that, I'm not here to be rich}. This doesn't include the number of hours a day I put into promoting Sustainably Chic, which is just as important in order to grow a larger audience for you. 

I don't answer all emails sent, and I most certainly don't work with any brands I can not support. Even though you are still paying a small fee to be a part of the site, I genuinely love what each brand offers on Sustainably Chic and will always promote with honesty. The only way Sustainably Chic will stay running is through the support of you. :) Thanks for taking the time to read. If you have any other questions, I'm an open book & I'd be happy to answer! 

p.s. I'm a mom-to-be so not only is my life supported by Sustainably Chic, but theirs will be, too <3....with the help of dad, of course ;)
