A New Advertorial and Sponsored Post Policy

          By Chuck Black

Some of what we can do. Graphic c/o blogkonversation
It's worth noting that most Commercial Space blog authors and contributors are professionals who write for money.

As such, we are often approached by organizations and/or individuals looking to create a sponsored post or advertorial to post on the blog or publish through another outlet.

It's just that, with one or two exceptions (such as the posts referencing the Space Library, the most recent of which was the October 4th, 2015 post "Rocket Spaceflight Accurately Described by Scottish-Canadian Scientist in 1861," where the blog receives a small commission on new Space Library subscribers), we don't normally accept advertorials or sponsored articles as blog posts.

And any exceptions are always noted and referenced in the post, just to be fair to our readers.

But we're OK with using our expertise in other areas where we can help promote your organization or services and are happy enough to take your money, given the correct opportunity. 

Below is a current listing of our offerings and standard rates.
