Shiny Offer
Friday, February 1, 2008

I've been approached about authoring a subject specific blog and providing photographic content for it. It sounds awesome! I've been out of the blogging and photo game for too long, my own fault mind you. It'll be great to start publishing and creating again.

There's just one thing...what the heck do you charge for this sort of thing?

edit: Didn't work out quite how I'd hoped. Maybe it's still possible.

My recommendation would be to send a couple emails to people who run similar (or different) blogs to see what they get paid. Then compare what they have to what you'll do and adjust, offer and go from there.

Congrats and good luck :)

In all seriousness... I have no clue. Sorry.

However, I fondly recall the pictures posted on your old web site, and they were, for the most part, excellent. You have talent that is worth some money.

um I'd suggest you ask tem what price range they had in mind and then raise it by 10%:)

I think the world of you two, but not helping!

I have some figures in mind.

Start high. When they laugh, drop your price. When they stop laughing and take on a contemplative look, drop your price one more time.

So good to see you in the blog again, my Weirdess. Shiny offer, indeed! Let's see...

*puts on round glasses*
*puts on visor*
*goes to museum, gets adding machine, desk lamp, and roll-up desk*
*looks at twg*

How much money do you need for Dragon*Con? Let's work backwards from there... *snort*

But seriously, I do not know nearly enough to give you an estimate on what you should charge.

One MILLION dollars! One blog. Goodbye.

I am curious... what is it about?
