Anyways back to the subject matter on what I would do with $25. Since my blog is still rather new, I would use it to gather some exposure. What would be the best way to get some exposure for $25 though. I could:
Purchase a link for this website
With all the Google Page Rank penalties being sent out recently about paid links though I don't think I'll go with this one. Also sidebar or sponsored posts don't really do great for traffic unless its from a very high traffic source anyways. I wouldn't be able to purchase a good spot for $25 so nope.
Use Adwords or other Pay Per Click(PPC) advertising.
While this might be a great way to bring in targeted traffic, I would rather spend PPC money to a landing page that sells a product over just sending to my website. I guess this one won't work for me either.
Buy a gift for Shoemoney
Yup, its decided. I'll use my Cafe Press account for once, and make a T-shirt with my site on it for his Free T-Shirt Friday promotion. I think in my position this would probably be the best bet, since it'll get a link from a high PR site, and hopefully some traffic. Worth a shot right?
So what would you do with $25?
