A question that I’m increasingly being asked about is whether I agree with sponsored posts as a way to make money online from blogging.
Sponsored posts are nothing new – bloggers have been doing it for years – writing posts in exchange for payments. What is new is the organized way that the practice is happening with services popping up that match bloggers with those wanting to get blogged about.
- So what do you think about sponsored posts as a concept?
- Have you used them?
- Would you do them?
- Under what circumstances would you do them?
I’m interested in people’s experiences and opinions on the topic and won’t cloud this post with my own thoughts on it (I’m happy to write my own opinions on it at a later point once others have had their say).
I know people feel pretty strongly about the topic either way so expect this to come through in your comments but simply ask that you keep to the topic and not take it into a personal flame war if you disagree with what others say. All opinions will be listened to and are welcomed.
So – what do you think about sponsored posts?
