Thoughts On Sponsoring

I've been milling over adding sponsorships to my blog for a few weeks now.  Although I have a relatively small blog, my readership is growing consistently.  And with my Etsy shoppe opening within the next few months, I want to show even more support for other bloggers/independent business owners.
Is it something you would be interested in here on OATN?  I feel a bit awkward asking people to pay for banner space on my blog, so if I offered sponsorships, they would be kept less than $10.
I'm curious for your opinions on the matter.  I wanted to get my readers thoughts before I jumped in with both feet.  This little blog has become such a big part of my life.  Now that it's growing, I'm searching for more ways to show love to fellow bloggers and independent business owners.  I never imagined it would make it to the point where I would consider sponsorships, but here I am!  Please feel free to share any thoughts, advice, or tips you may have!
xo, A.

I just started sponsoring as well!!! I felt the same way, I didn't want to charge a lot of money as a new sponsor and so I offered: $5.00 for a sidebar spot, or an ad swap (I'd host their blog/shop ad if they'd host mine) or finally, we could trade something along the same price as a spot. I figured that way, there would be an option for everyone!

I'm definitely interested in sponsoring! I hope you get some other replies with info, because really, I'm just as new to this as you are. :D

I wouldn't be able to sponsor, but I think if other people would, you should! It's such a win-win situation... go for it :)

I think it's a very good idea, infact I have been thinking about it for a while for myself too. It's just finding the right time and if you are feeling it then do it :)
