I've been thinking a lot lately about the many questions that bloggers might have that can only be answered by other bloggers. A lot of these questions are ones that people don't normally talk about on their blog, but these are answers that other bloggers need to know in order to improve their blogs and all that comes with it. This month I'm going to tackle the subject of Sponsors and $$$.
I know that a lot of bloggers have worked with sponsors or affiliates at some point....it's no longer something strictly reserved for the "big wigs", so I think it's time that we worked together to get more information on what we, as bloggers, are worth.
What I decided to do was make a survey asking a bunch of questions relating to Sponsorships and Money. The survey is completely confidential, but I do ask questions about stats and $$ amounts (or gifted amounts). This way bloggers can get a better idea of what type of money they should be charging for different posts/ads by checking out what other bloggers with similar stats to their blog are making/asking. I think this would be a great way for bloggers to come together and help each other out, while getting answers to the questions that aren't publicly addressed.
If this is something that will be useful for yourself please fill out the survey here by April 26th!
I'm going to be publishing the results on April 29th
With all this said, I'm not doing this because I am trying to turn my blog into a business, but rather because it is a topic that many of us have questions about, and there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to seek answers.
