I mentioned in an earlier post that we recently spent a few days in Portland, relaxing after our very emotional Montana trip. We were able to stay in a guest cottage free of charge, thanks to a little deal we worked out with Katy over at The Non-Consumer Advocate. Jump on over to her site and take a look at the new blog header that Patrick designed as our part of the deal.
What I loved most about this deal, besides getting the opportunity to meet a blog friend in person, was that Katy managed to figure out a way to trade services for every step in getting her new header up and running. Actually, I had no idea how many people were involved in the process.
The great thing about bartering is that it doesn’t always have to be an even dollar-for-dollar trade. It’s more about what something is worth to you, how much you want it, or how much you are willing to help someone out. If you love to barter, I’d love to hear other creative bartering stories.
