Ever since I started this blog, I’ve held to the idea that having one location for all Brazil bloggers to write would be a bankable operation. The problem is that everyone is too attached to their own ‘brand’ and when I think of someone asking me to give up my site to work exclusively for them, they better pay me well because until that happens, I’m more than happy to contribute as a writer/columnist for other brands, as it were, but I won’t be leaving my own site.
Usually when I propose this individually to other Brazil bloggers, they don’t respond at all to the proposal. Perhaps that is why I am finally after almost 3 years, saying it like this, as a post. There’s enough of us to constantly create good, interesting content to the point where the main page would be like a stream the reader can easily browse through. The group at Brasil Com Z are doing just what I propose (although they are actually Brazilians writing about living abroad), nonetheless, I think it’s a fantastic idea…as long as there was some sort of editorial oversight or system of checks put in place.
The only way to accomplish both so that each person can have their cake and eat it too, is with the creation of a new site, the approval of all parties involved to have their content replicated and someone to be in charge of it. So, here it is…I propose a collaboration in some sense or another. There’s enough of us doing a great job to attract legitimate advertising and make an example of what we can accomplish together, without resorting to having ‘too many cooks in the kitchen’, so to speak. We can start simple with just one good post per blogger per week (that’s around 10+ posts per week if everyone I have in mind participates).
Any thoughts, be you a reader or blogger?
