This week I got two offers from companies asking to partner up with my blog and get some exposure on here. Both were unsolicited, surprising and actually a little bit exciting. Like many others blogging I have dreams of one day making a full time living from writing. Whilst that has always been confined in my mind to publishing works of fiction, these offers did start me wondering whether blogging could supplement such a career in some way.
I have read several features on successful blogs and always wondered how the writer was able to do it full time. One such blog is Cupcakes and Cashmere – it’s a style focused blog, well written and girly with lots of gorgeous things to look at. The writer works full time on the blog and states that this is possible by working with partners.
Whilst I’m still miles away from even considering working on this blog full time, it is an interesting direction to consider especially as it would free more time for me to work on my book. I would have to consider carefully how I’d monetize my blog though, I wouldn’t want to endorse things I’d never tried or didn’t believe in or write reviews that were false or misleading but if things appeared that genuinely fitted with my blog and me then I think I would go for it.
Have you been approached with any sponsorship request for your blog? What would you do if you were?
