How do YOU Deal with Commercial/Sponsored Blog Posts? #BloggersCollective

Bloggers Collective emblem

At the end of November 2011 on YEP Media’s first Birthday, we hosted our first Bloggers’ Collective Workshop featuring  two local fashion bloggers; one ethical fashion blogger and the other a street style blogger. Each blogger explained  to the audience  exactly how they started their own Online Persona. It was a great session for those individuals who are in the early stages of developing their own online media platform.

One of the questions that was asked to our guest speakers, in a very roundabout way was how do you deal with sponsored blog posts or commercial activity within your web platform? Our speakers responded by saying that they would be happy to accept sponsored blog posts or any commercial collaboration providing it fits within their remit or values as bloggers.

From this discussion topic, we just thought we would pick up this conversation again as we think it’s important to understand  how to deal with any commercial opportunities that might arise through blogging and how this all depends on having a strong understanding of what you are developing and where you want it to go but we will explore this in more depth in our next blog few articles. In the mean time we would like to hear your thoughts, how do you personally deal with commercial/sponsored blog posts?
