Sweet Happy Life focuses on family-friendly recipes and toddler/preschool activity ideas. From irresistible zucchini brownies and butternut squash “mac and cheese”, to children’s songs and painting with glue and salt, this site is all about making the little kid years magical. Oh yes, and there’s something for grown ups too, like these Starbucks clone recipes. :)
Founded in June 2011, Sweet Happy Life is a relatively new blog but nevertheless enjoys an impressive amount of traffic and has been featured on sites such as Cosmopolitan Magazine, POP Sugar, Apartment Therapy, The Huffington Post, PBS Parents, ToriSpelling.com and MSNBC’s Today. The majority of our readers are based in the United States (86%) and Canada (10%). Additionally, most of our visitors are parents, grandparents and caregivers of young children in the toddler or preschool years.

Sponsor Ad Spots
125×125, 300×250 or 728×90
The decision to make ad space available on Sweet Happy Life was not an easy one, but after much thought and research I’ve decided that carefully chosen ads may be a good way to help us to continue sharing activities and recipes on this site. :)
Ads will only feature companies that I think moms would be genuinely interested in learning about and that I think are related in some way to what I write about here on Sweet Happy Life.
Sweet Happy Life ad spots are available in three sizes/locations:
- 125×125: Runs near the top of the left-hand sidebar.
- 300×250: Runs near the top of the right-hand sidebar, beneath the “About Us” section. Includes dedicated blog post.
- 728×90 Leaderboard: Runs at the very top of the site, above the header section. Includes dedicated blog post.
In addition to the ad spot itself, the 350×250 and 728×90 ads come with a blog post sharing your company with readers. One blog post is published for every month that you advertise on Sweet Happy Life and will be shared on Facebook/Pinterest as appropriate.
*Note that the 728×90 sample image above does not display full-size on this page.
How do Sweet Happy Life ads perform?
Between the sidebar ads themselves and the blog posts, Sweet Happy Life advertisers have seen an impressive amount of traffic being sent to their sites. One advertiser placed a 300×250 ad in our sidebar for 3 months and saw over 1.3 million impressions with over 300,000 clicks. They key to success is creating an ad that is relevant and interesting to the parents, grandparents and caregivers who read Sweet Happy Life. :)
