I’ve been asking for submissions to TNaV for awhile now and have gotten some great posts. From the very beginning, I felt bad for not being able to compensate the bloggers as much as I wanted to. Being a blogger myself, I understand that our work has worth.
I also decided that all commissions I make from this site will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Not only because it’s for a great cause but I didn’t want bloggers contributing content that might lead to me making commissions. I also thought more bloggers would like to get behind this project if it ultimately benefited Planned Parenthood.
Still, the compensation I offered was really more a gesture of goodwill and I wanted to do more. So, I’ve set about asking the affiliates I feature on this site if they would like to sponsor guest posts by compensating the author with a $25 gift card. So far I’ve asked two companies and I’m thrilled that they said, yes! PeepShow Toys and Tantus have agreed to sponsor posts.
I’d like to get all the companies on board, that way each company only sponsors a post about every 5 months or so. Since I’m just launching this project, the first contributor would get their choice between a PeepShow Toys or Tantus gift card but going forward, each contributor would get a gift card from whichever company was next on the list (if more join). I do regret that I can’t make this retroactive for the folks who’ve already submitted posts. I hope ya’ll understand. But you’re more than welcome to submit content from this point on and get the gift card.
So pitch me your ideas! I’d love to feature educational posts, opinion pieces or, personal experiences about anything related to having a uterus, ovaries, vagina, vulva and all those things that make us awesome.
Update: Vibrant has agreed to sponsor posts, along with PeepShow Toys and Tantus, with a $25 gift card to the author!
