Introducing Passionfruit 2.0 .... No Go!

So I found out today that Passionfruit is giving bloggers until September 1st, 2013 to either decided if we want to pay $9 a month for all there cool new features or not have sponsored blogs anymore.
Well to be honest they are AMAZING new features BUT I can't justify spending $9 a month to have spend on having sponsor spots on the blog....

  1. Passionfruit has a $50 for one year offer - that's only $4 a month! I know I'm not a lifestyle blogger, but as a retailer I totally think it's worth it :P

  2. That is so increadibly dumb! Hopefully they'll change their minds and keep the basic options avaibable for people who don't want to pay!

  3. I'm with ya....I don't begrudge PassionFruit changing their policy (we all have to make money), but I did the same business before I had paid sponsors, so I'm fine with going back to having no sponsors. I think there is a definitely difference between lifestyle bloggers and retail bloggers, in how we monetize.

  4. If you make more than $9 a month having sponsors, it's totally worth it to have someone do the dirty work for you. I would spend hours otherwise keeping track of when ads expire and I just dont have the time for it. You could always go the old fashioned route- send sponsors a paypal invoice, after they pay upload their ads manually and keep track of when ads expire. Its a lot of work but if you're getting paid for it- why not?
