a word about sponsorships... | Chantilly

a word about sponsorships...

partner chantillysongs

i've often thought about and have been intrigued by sponsorships since i started getting involved in this whole blogging "scene..." should i sponsor blogs? is it worth it? should accept sponsors someday?

i've sponsored a few blogs in the last couple months... some yielded no results, some have gotten me some decent traffic, and others have turned into relationships :)

from what i can see, having sponsors can be a lot of work. but it also looks like a lot of fun, a great way to meet other bloggers, get traffic, and promote each other :)

so i've decided to dip my toe in the waters, if you will... for the next couple months i'd like to start accepting "sponsors" on my blog. i use that term lightly because although i've been growing at a rate i'm mostly pleased with, i dont' think i'm at a point in which demanding actual moneys would be appropriate.

so what i'm proposing is this- if you are interested in partnering with my blog, each month we will:

~ put each other's buttons on each other's sidebars
~ you'll have a chance to either participate in a group giveaway, write a guest post, or be interviewed on chantillysongs.
~ i have the option to do one of the same things on your blog/ website

that's it! that and some twitter love. i try to be good at tweeting, but fail sometimes. maybe this will give me good reason to participate in all those #followfridays :D

i'm excited to do this as a way to expose each other to new audiences, all while adding content to the blog. everybody wins!

THE TYPES OF BLOGS I'D MOST LIKE TO PARTNER WITH: style, lifestyle, music/ musicians, indie, vintage, diy, and etsy/ crafts. i'll consider others, but this is really where my own readership lies.

thank you! i love you!
if interested, please hit me up at chantillysongs (at) gmail (dot) com and we will work out some details for july :)

can't wait to hear from you!
