sponsor & writing 1 min read

I’ve decided to experiment with sponsorship here on the blog, as a way to support my writing and allow me to devote more time to producing the kind of content I think you’ll enjoy.

If you’re interested in sponsoring my writing for a week, you can find out more about sponsorship here (including what you get in return). We’ll start out with a low weekly sponsorship fee, and go from there.

You, dear reader, are the most important part of all this, so I’d like to make some promises to you.

  1. All sponsors will be personally approved by me. There will be one sponsor per week, at most.

  2. The sponsored post at the start of the week will be brief, and I’ll personally approve the wording. Sponsored posts will always be in the “sponsor” category, and their title will be prefixed with “Sponsor:”. I’ll never deceive you with ‘advertorials’.

  3. Each sponsor gets two social media thank-you messages per week: one at the beginning, and another at the end. Those messages will always include the hashtag “#sponsor”.

This gives you, the reader, freedom to control your experience. I respect you, and I have no wish to spam you. If there’s some way I can make this better or more straightforward, get in touch and let me know.

It’s my hope that this can work out for both of us. If it doesn’t, it’ll go away, and I’ll have learned something. Can’t say fairer than that.

Once again, you can find out more about sponsorship here.
