Have you written a paid review on your blog was the question in our last reader poll here at ProBlogger. 1771 people responded and the result was fairly clear – over three quarters of you have never done a paid review.
77% have never done one and a further 7% don’t currently do one which leaves 16% who either do them regularly or occasionally.
What interests me most about these results is the change in them from last time we asked the question back in 2007.
In that poll we only gave the option for a ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answer but there has been a swing away from paid posts in that time. The shift has not been massive but is noticeable. Here’s how it went last time.
Perhaps this reflects a change in the audience here at ProBlogger but I suspect it also shows a change in bloggers attitudes to paid posts also.
Back in 2007 they were a much hotter topic (there was a heap of debate on the topic) and many bloggers were keen to experiment with paid posts as a potential income stream.
