I’ve been noodling a few things lately in regards to the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, and wanted to open up a bit of dialogue with all of you. Last week, we tried something a little different in that we had a sponsored weekly challenge. While I don’t think that kind of topic will be the norm, I do think that we might be able to find sponsors for some of the future challenges. Here’s what I’d like to know:
First, do you like the idea of sponsored League posts or should we bag the whole idea and just have fun as usual?
Second, if the League assignment asked you to put an advertisement or sentence at the end of your post in order to be included in the incentive, would you be up for that? (You can always NOT include the sponsor’s message, but you would be excluded from that incentive.)
Currently, I am thinking that a sponsor might offer participating blogs “X” if they include an ad of some sort in their post. The topic would be anything, but NOT necessarily related to the sponsor’s product.
We see an average of 15-20 blogs submitting responses every week, and clearly there is value in that. So let me know if you think it’s worth pursuing or if you’d rather keep the same course that we have been travelling. I’m not leaning one way or the other, but am always looking for ideas and opinions.
