I know you think I am crazy because those are all some pretty bold statements for strangers but let me tell you, I get it! I know what it is like to blog, dream, make, create, and want to share those gifts with others. I did not wake up one day with the influence I have today. It was a journey - a wonderful long journey filled with highs and lows and I would not trade it for the world.
Do you want to know what makes the difference? Community. People do. It makes sense really, you want to reach other people (that is why you clicked on ADVERTISE) and part of that is interacting with them, being with them, going where they go, and saying hello.
You are my favorite because I know your heart and you will blog or make or create or dream even if no one knows, reads, or watches. But I want something more for you. I want to share your dreams with the world. I want to walk with you as others have walked with me.
I want to invite you to be part of this community.
Today you are reading Oak + Oats with around four thousand other sets of eyes. Those page views are real people, with real computers, smart phones, and tablets who are checking in on the Oak + Oats community. They love discovering new small businesses to support, new blogs to read, and new things to try.
You know me, I am Elizabeth and I post too much on instagram, wear too much GAP clothing, and spend too much money on cute stationery! I love people, I love community, and I love creating an authentic place here on the internet.
I am no expert but I have learned by experience! I may be just a bit farther down this road than you and I want to walk with you - because it is all about people, remember? It may seem overwhelming and hard to do it on your own but we have each other!
HERE ARE SOME VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY:

Beth is a delight to work with!" - Samantha of Elah Tree
"Oak and Oats is a great blog to partner with. Elizabeth is friendly and great to work with. When I purchased an ad spot Elizabeth made it more about community rather than just an advertisement. I highly recommend growing your blog and community by partnering with Oak and Oats!" - Beka of Sunshine to the Square Inch
"Beth is an absolute joy to work with. I've been advertising with Oak + Oats for several months now, and it has definitely been beneficial in growing my readership. But advertising with her does more than that. I have met so many new friends in blogland thanks to Beth. She truly loves people, and as a sponsor, I have never felt like just another name on her sidebar. She honestly values and appreciates her sponsors, and that's what keeps me coming back." - Megan of Rivers & Roads
"I have been advertising with Oak & Oaks for over a year now and have really have enjoyed working with Beth on Ads, features, & giveaways!

Beth is such a sweetheart to work with and I hope that her blog continues to grow each year!" - Jess of Jess Vartanian Design
"Sponsoring Oak & Oats was a great decision! Elizabeth was very helpful with any questions I had and always got back to me right away. She took an interest in me and my blog and did her best to help grow my blog. I would definitely recommend sponsoring her if you haven't already! Her blog is a happening place and she is amazing to work with!" - Allison of Nestful of Love
