Our Blogger Co-Op
The Chronicle’s one-of-a-kind Blogger Co-Op gives you direct access to submit Opinion and Analysis columns, guaranteeing that you or your organization’s views are shared with the world on a news platform.
Even better: You will share in the profits from revenue generated by our Opinion and Analysis section!
How it Works
1) For a membership fee of $60 annually, each Blogger Co-Op Member can publish up to four entries about youth services per month. The entries can each be up to 600 words. You should read ALL of the Terms of Service for the Blogger Co-Op before you decide to join.
2) Members will earn money for their participation in the co-op based on the number of Members participating, the level of involvement of each Member, advertising revenues earned by The Chronicle, and media grants procured by The Chronicle.
Each Member’s revenue share will be calculated twice annually, on June 30 and December 31, yielding a six (6) month revenue calculation period. Each Member’s revenue share will be determined by the percentage of page views a given Members’ published submissions receive during the present calculation period. The greater the percentage of page views resulting from a Member’s submissions, the greater that Member’s share will be.
3) Twice a year, The Chronicle will calculate the number of page views generated by all members of the Blogger Co-Op, and the number of page views generated by each individual member. Each member will receive a share of the pot proportional to the amount of the total Co-Op page views he or she accounts for.
4) Will anyone get rich blogging for The Chronicle? Not even close! But we wanted to create a way for advocates and practitioners to communicate directly with our readers, spark meaningful debate, and be recognized and rewarded for their time.
