Posted this on the Awards website. Looking for a company to sign up to sponsor the “Blog Post of the Week” section on the Blog Awards site. Each week people can nominate the best blog post and the winner will get a voucher for Amazon or something like that. If anyone is interested in sponsorship, drop me a line.
Update: Just to clarify a few things. Sponsorship for this would start in September and would end just after the Blog Awards 2008. This is a long-term sponsorship commitment.
More details on how it can benefit the sponsor and why it benefits blogging:
There are now well over 2000 Irish blogs, with the number possibly over 3000 blogs. The Best Blog Post will feed into the Irish Blog Awards 2008. It is designed to keep people thinking about the Blog Awards but also as a way of promoting quality blogging.
There will be a nomination form on the Awards website which will allow anyone to nominate a blog post. The winner will be announced on the Blog Awards site each week and the winner is encouraged to display the Blog Post Winner badge link back to the blog post.
Currently the Blog Awards website gets about 2000 unique visitors a month but closer to the Blog Awards event, it gets a lot more visits. In February this year it had 13,575 unique visitors for the month.
