I was thinking of hipmama last week. I know they are alternative moreso than natural but those two words are practically interchangeable to me.
I saw where they had a 20$ banner offer too.
What about organic style?
or even Natural Home depending on what you sell. So many people who read those have to have kids and are probably really interested in natural stores for them.
I'll hopefully think of more.
Nice idea Lala!

Don't forget about VegFamily.com!

I tried a banner on hipmama.com last year, but I didn't get any sales from it. However, that doesn't mean it isn't a good place to advertise!

Thanks for this list, it is good to brainstorm with others.

Peace,

Karen

But for those looking for online, here is a quick list

www.mothering.com
www.amitymama.com
www.vegfamily.com
www.greentit.com
www.doulaguild.com
www.kittybids.com
diaperheyena (how do you spell that?"!)
diaperpin
etc etc etc

Depends on what you're selling, but I'm starting to see sling and cloth diapering ads (among other cruchy things) in homeschooling magazines. I noticed a few in the most recent issue of The Link.

New signature, same old me: Ann- mama of 2 boys and 2 girls, partnered to a fabulous man.
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.

I have advertised in Nurturing and it was a pleasant experience. They actually have a program that is set up for families in need ... you donate products in the amount of your ad space in leui of cash. They distrubute them to families who apply to them for assistance. I gave materinty and nursing clothing but I am sure diapers would be an excellent donation as well. They also have "permanent issues" that are best-of collections of articles that can be purchased at any time. I am in the pregnancy issue from now until eternity ...

New Beginnings -- the La Leche League member publication
Leaven -- the LLL leader publication

If it weren't for ads in those mags for Mothering, cloth diapers, nursing clothing, baby slings -- I'd still be clueless.

Don't have anymore mags to add...just a comment that I wish they all weren't so darn expensive! :

I would love to advertise in Mothering, but I just can't afford it right now.

Dana, mom to Avery & Natalie 7 , Cole 4 , and Baby #4 on the way!
