Nadine of Back East Blonde said: "Casey was, without a doubt, one of the most professional, courteous, and approachable bloggers I have ever worked with. Within hours (more like minutes) of purchasing my ad, I received a warm welcome email from her. Throughout my sponsorship, she was responsive and helpful. That aside, I got some true readers from sponsoring Casey, not just followers. It's obvious that her readers trust her and it really showed as my readership steadily increased throughout the month. She was consistently a top 10 referring site for me. Sponsor her! You won't regret it."
Jenna of A Home Away From Home said: "It was such a great experience sponsoring! Often times it feels like sponsors aren't a priority for the blogger doing the sponsoring, but with Casey, everything was easy and on-time and just worked!"
Renee of This Won't Hurt a Bit said: "I absolutely loved advertising with Casey! She was such a joy to work with. I love how quick she is to respond to emails and how approachable she is. My guest post on her blog had a great response because her readers are some of the best out there. End of story! You won't be disappointed in the investment!"
Annie of MontgomeryFest said: "More than the welcome spike in traffic, I'm thankful to Casey for the new blogships (blog + friendships, is what that is) made from her sweet words. I was so flattered to hear what thoughtfulness she put into the feature (and super curious to find out her favorite posts!). It's clear how genuine she is from the first welcome email and even gives pointers to help you make the most of the feature, still impressed by that. This sponsorship, by far, has been the most value I've gotten - both personal friendships and the marketing side. She's just a really nice human."
Jessica of This Analog Adventure said: "I would highly recommend anyone sponsor Casey, because she's brilliant! She has the most comprehensive and organized sponsorship system, everything is on-time and organized, and she makes you feel like you're getting star treatment (though I'm sure she treats everyone equally awesome! haha). For the entire month I was on her sidebar, she was my blog's top referral traffic source. Talk about results!"
Chantal of Scattered Seashells said: "I am SO glad I bought a spot with Casey this past month! Not only was she awesome to work with, and very responsible, but I saw a huge increase in readers. That's great! I had a wonderful time participating in the Fresh Face Friday and I would recommend it to anyone."
Erin of Just a Few of My Favorite Things said: "Thank you SOOO much for having me as a sponsor and having me host the giveaway! I got unbelievable traffic from the giveaway and really good traffic from the ad on your blog too!! Yea!"
Bailey of Becoming Bailey said: "Casey is, hands-down, the best blogger to work with. Her emails were always on-time and when I had questions, she was super helpful. On the day of my feature, I received a good amount of traffic and even made some new blogging friends. The write-up was genuine and I could tell Casey really took the time to dig through my archives and learn about my blog. Working with Casey is like working with a long-lost friend. I wholeheartedly recommend sponsoring We Took The Road Less Traveled and I can't wait to sponsor Casey again in the future."
Belle of Finding My Virginity said: "In 2013, I started sponsoring blogs for the first time. A two-month ad with Casey was the second one I purchased. As impressed as I was with her original program, I have been completely blown away by my two separate months as one of her Fresh Face Friday sponsors. Casey didn't just give me a short blurb on her blog. She genuinely read my blog to pick our her favorite posts and promote them to her readers. Plus she was so helpful while communicating with me! I struggled with the link-up code, but she responded quickly so I could fix it. She also gave me some general blogging tips to help my blog appeal to her readers on the day my sponsor post went live on We Took the Road Less Traveled. Each time I sponsored Casey, her blog was in my top ten for referral traffic that month, and I gained several new, engaged followers after my sponsor post. I hope to work with Casey again in the future."
