What Options are Available?

I have the following options available:
  • Sponsored content (preferred option) – individual posts or regular subject categories. Note sponsorship covers my original content only, not advertorial or infographic content
  • Advertising – text or picture placements in the sidebar
  • Product and service reviews - these must fit with my own needs and Veg Plotting’s content. These are limited so that other content isn't diluted
  • I also write articles, content for e.g. brochures, and I also provide online content and social media services

NB all links are designated as nofollow to comply with Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. This ensures all clients are treated equally and my blog’s continued availability for your peace of mind.

I do not accept link exchanges to boost blog/website SEO, nor I do not accept affiliate or other click-through advertising requests, or advertorial style guest posts.

Note: I no longer run competitions or giveaways.

I'm happy to discuss your requirements and send you my Media Pack. For further information and rates contact me via the Contact form at the foot of this Page.

Note to Veg Plotting's readerssponsorship is to cover my blogging costs so I can continue to write the kind of posts you expect from me and I enjoy writing.
