Oopsie! What’s Social Spark anyway?

Umm, it occurred to me after I hit publish on the previous post that I mentioned Social Spark, and did not explain one measly word about it beyond discussing the blog sponsorships and their impact on my yarn fund. And then I popped over to the site to see if my sponsorship was ready, and lo and behold, they were looking for bloggers to tell other bloggers about Social Spark. Hey, I can do that! I’m qualified and verified and woohoo!

I have been so excited about Social Spark since I got a glimpse of it in Las Vegas last year. It is truly an exciting platform. Social Spark combines social networking with paid blogging. The best part is you can do one without the other. Each blogger can create a profile that lists their interests and what they like. Here’s mine. Oh, wait. I can’t link you to it, because SocialSpark is still in alpha. I’m a tester. *Giggle* I totally like being out there on the edge of a new thing!

Ok, so you can fill out a profile, and then you can take opportunities to blog about stuff you probably would have talked about anyway for money. Or you an wait for a company you like to offer a blog sponsorship. OR, you can ask a company to sponsor you. Yeah, crazy talk, huh?

It’s going to be a great place for you to hook up with other bloggers with similar interests, because the whole thing is searchable. Think ….. Ravelry for the paid blogger niche of humanity. Or even those who would consider paid blogging if the price was right. Yeah, I mentioned Ravelry. Yeah, I really do think it will be that big.

They even collect stats for you on who your visitors are, where they come from and all that.

So, imagine if Sitemeter met Blog Catalog met PayPerPost met Facebook. Kinda like all that. And you know who they want? You, the mommy blogger. Or me. Or maybe her. They want real people to give the real scoop! Now, I said Social Spark was in alpha testing, but they are asking people to sign up to be notified when the site goes live to the general public. So head on over and enter your email address. They’ll let you know when the site is opened, and you can check it out.
