Those words soothed me when…

Blog Tour - August

Fellow authors,

I would like to plan a blog tour for August since my book, 10 Things College Students Need to Know About Money, is a perfect gift for college students. Do you know of any blog sites that cover college students, parents, grandparents, or personal finance?

Also, has anyone paid for reviews or marketed with banner ads on a blog? Are these types of marketing worth it?
