Blog Program Update

Do you want to have your voice heard? Do you have some ideas that you want to share with the world? Do you want to get into the fantasy sports writing world? If any of those are true, then blogging might be for you!

The RotoGrinders blog program is one of the few places where you can write and can get PAID for it. To get started on your own blog, just go to your profile page and click on Blog!

In an effort to get more quality bloggers and a wider variety of posts, we have updated our Blogs Review process and the prizes awarded.

Any Grinder can blog! There is an approval process, however, to ensure blogs meet our quality standards. There may be a delay while our team reviews your blog for Quality Control.

Remember to “Mark for Review” so that your blogs are sent for approval to our editors!

Blog Awards Criteria

The blog awards will be paid out through the following important criteria:

— Blogs being of high quality that are featured (number of featured blogs)
— Number of ‘likes’ or ‘pluses’ from readers on your individual blogs and overall
— Number of social media shares via Facebook or Twitter
— Google Analytics that show page views and unique page views
— Positive feedback in the comment sections of your blogs

Monthly Blogger Awards

Blogger of the Month – $150
Blogger of the Month Runner-Up – $75

- This will be decided based on the combined totals of the factors listed above as Blog Awards Criteria

Best Individual Blog Post of the Month – $75
Individual Blog Post of the Month Runner-Up – $50

- There’s no four blog minimum anymore, so this is an award for bloggers who might not have time to write the minimum blog number but still have a couple of great ideas for pieces. Again, this will be determined by the criteria listed in the Blog Awards Criteria section.

Funniest/Most Interesting Blog of the Month: $50

- This is a subjective pick by our RG Staff as to who has the most original and enjoyable read for the month.

Best Blog Post from a New Blogger – $50

NOTE: Best blog post from a ‘New Blogger’. A ‘New Blogger’ constitutes someone who has been blogging on RG for under two months. This is again subject to qualifying under the Blog Awards Criteria listed above.

Wild Card: $50

- This is a subjective pick by our RG Editor team. It can be a specific blog post that drew our attention, or a blogger that has consistently displayed some quality submissions for the month.
