Hello hello, loyal friends, readers, fellow bloggers & followers. I need your assistance, on two different matters! Both which I will explain what they are and why you should help me out!
Anonymous Blogger Survey
What's one of the most, and probably the only taboo topic when it comes to bloggers? Ahem. It's how much we get paid. I get it, I get the hush hush. But for newbie bloggers, myself included. Man we are so so confused. We're also pretty sure we are getting ripped off for the solid work that we are doing.
I have created a completely anonymous survey that goes over things like monthly unique views, your followers as well as how you gauge your followers. (like through what platform?) And the big question, how much you charge per sponsored post. So it's not a specific, 9/10 questions are multiple choice, including the sponsored post rate. Mostly I want to get a rough idea, that I can then share with everyoneand everyone can be better informed on how much they should be charging.
Heritage Bank's Blog Awards
There are a lot of blog awards going around at the moment, I've already voted for Jordan & Rhianna in the Bloggers Blog Awards. Slightly less exciting, but still cool is this Australian Blog Awards that I'm apart of. There are a few different parts of it that you can win, and one of them is by writing a post on saving money and being voted for. I wrote the post "Taking Control of my money in My Early Twenties" which talks about how I organise all my money on a day to day basis, which allows me to be able to save money so well.
I only have a small amount of votes so far, so that's where you come in! I would love for you to give me a vote! To vote all you have to do is fill out a small form, name and email. There is a 25 words or less part on why you are voting that is completely optional but if you do choose to write a reason, you have a 1 in 10 chance at winning a $100 Cash Card! Not too shabby.
You just have to click the link in the email when you receive it, to confirm the vote. A lot of them having been going to the spam/junk folder, so check there. Also when using emails that end in "@hotmail.com" I've found the email never shows at all! So probably use another one if you have it.
Thanks so much for all your help everyone!
And in case you didn't realise, those big swirly font banners are buttons to the survey and competition!
