As most of you know, we are a pretty new blog and we are dealing with some things for the first time. This includes dealing with advertisers.  I've got some great advice from some bloggers so far, but I wanted to know if there is a general rule of thumb about pricing on ads. We are certainly interested in doing sponsored posts. We'd also be interested in posting sidebar or banner ads as well.


On a side note, when posting a sponsored post, should we announce that it is a paid advertorial feature…or should we just say that it is a guest post? What is proper?


Thanks for everybody's input!

My general policy is to give them a number and see if they bite. If they respond with a no, a week later, I'll ask what their budget is. I figure getting less than the going rate is better than getting nothing.

 I'm looking for editors, beta-readers, and some demographic research for my upcoming novel, Once Upon a Saturn Moon. If you like reading soft sci-fi thrillers, maybe with a touch of romance thrown in, you can find more information at…..aturn-moon
