Where have you been?

Sorry, it’s not you, it’s me. I’ve been AWOL for a minute. I usually try to put out a post each week, but I’m also super-serious about making sure the stuff published on TechYourBlog is exceptionally useful for bloggers, so I won’t publish stuff if I don’t have the time to make it worth-while.

And the last couple weeks have be hella busy. I hope I haven’t left you hangin’.

This week’s post is about Sponsored blog posts. I’ve been looking into starting to accept sponsored posts here, but wanted to research more about it first.

A roundup of blog posts about making money with sponsored content on your blog

I thought you might like to see what I found, so you can see what goes into finding, accepting, and handling sponsored posts on your blog.

What are sponsored posts?

A company can pay you to write a post that includes them or their product, or they can ask you to publish something prewritten on your blog. This is called a sponsored post.

As with any type of advertisement, you should be sure not to overdo it. It should be valuable to your readers – if you run a food blog, you probably don’t want to accept sponsored opportunities from a shoe company. And you need to disclose the sponsored relationship to your readers.
