LL says "Calling All Bloggers"
I think it is wonderful that LL wants to incorporate community bloggers into its own marketing and communication materials! I suggest compensation of 5,000 Linden per post as a start.
Linden Lab is making millions of dollars from us so I wonder why we should donate our content, and give editorial and exclusivity rights to them for free. I don't understand why bloggers think this "opportunity" is so great.
LL can link to our blogs to highlight work that we put out there every single day. But then they would not get to edit our words of course. And then they could not claim the right to publish our work first. Are we that desperate for hits and recognition that we would allow a for profit company to take advantage of us in this way? I guess so.
Call me cranky but when I write for other people's blogs I get paid. And, so should you my fellow bloggers.
