Surveys & Competitions

28 August 2015

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 everyone and everyone can be better informed on how much they should be charging.

Sound good?

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 "" I've found the email never shows at all! So probably use another one if you have it. 

That's 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!
I'll keep you updated on the results of both!
Cya! xox

  1. Ahhh, yes...the dreaded 'how much are you paid'....It's so weird to talk about, and I don't usually tell people my earnings...It's just so weird to talk about, but at the same time, it's really interesting to understand the how-tos and what-to-dos. Also, GOODLUCK ON THE COMPETITION <3

    Josie’s Journal

  8. Tegan I just started taking blogging seriously over the summer and I'm still confused on how people get paid for the amazing work they do---because how in the world does it happen?! They deserve every single cent plus more, but I wish people talked about it more so us beginners knew a little more about what we were doing!

  9. totally interested to see what the results are!!
    great blog, girl! if you get the chance and check out mine and let me know what you think! :)
    love, rach.
    So, hi.

  10. amazing post and great photos !! :)

  11. Love the new layout, and I've also voted for you! Thanks for posting this, it's been confusing the hell out of me! I had a company from China contact me asking if they could pay me £6 to write a post about their products containing 3 links, several photos and no less than 150 words with no sample given, then got really bitchy when I said I needed to either have a sample (for that much promo I wouldn't be happy reviewing without seeing in case they were crap!) I guess as I'm new I just accept most companies want it for free at the moment, but it would be nice if they'd share my posts and help me get a little more traffic seeing as the posts take time and effort! Rant over :)

    1. Preach it Lucy! I did some crap when I first started, posts for no money, and posts for very little money. But that's all in the past! Thanks so much for voting too! I can't wait to share the survey results at the end either, hopefully they'll give a bit of insight.


Thanks so much for commenting everyone! I read and appreciate every single one of your comments! xx
