The Poll Is Closed, Thanks For Voting!

by James 22 November 2008 2 Comments

I started the poll two weeks ago because I wanted to know your view about sponsored posts. I was hoping for at least 100 votes, you gave me 147! Thanks, it means a lot to me. That’s quite similar to the traffic situation in September. I was hoping for 250 to 500 visits per day and you gave me… 5000! Now about the poll results…

 

79 people (53%) say that I should continue to write sponsored posts, 23 people (15%) don’t want sponsored posts in this blog and 45 people (30%) left the decision to me.
Now let’s be honest. Sponsored posts won’t make me rich, that’s for sure. Most posts pay 10 bucks or so, and I guess I won’t be writing more than one per week, maybe even less. But that money can be useful to me sometimes. For instance, what I earned so far from sponsored posts went into paying for the domain (about 30 dollars for three years). I donated the rest of it ( about 20 dollars) to a nice website that promotes good movies 🙂
I will continue to write sponsored posts but I will, as I did until now, carefully choose the sponsors and the topics. I will not promote products or website that do not deserve that.
Thank you again for voting, maybe I will start a new poll soon, it’s very important to me to know how you feel about the blog.

    I just found the site and I think it’s a great idea to compile all this stuff!
    I have a review recommendation for you. A 3d modeling and animation program called. Blender
    It has been getting a bit of attention recently.

    I am in no way affiliated with them. (for the record)

    Thanks for the blog. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for your comment. I know about Blender, it has been on my “to be tested” list for a while now. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to give it a try so far.
