Dear LIB readers, should I take political ads?

Abeg, I need y'all to help me out with this dilemma. Contrary to what some of you think, I haven't, so far, collected a dime from any political party to run ads or a story. If you see any banner ads on my blog, it's from Google adsense and not direct from me. And the stories are absolutely not sponsored.

But the thing is, in the last few months, and it has especially intensified in the last few weeks, reps of political parties have been coming to me to run their ads. And the kind of money they are throwing at me...OMG! Lol. So far, I have resisted. I restrict my ads to strictly brands but these political ad  people will not leave me alone. They say every media platform in the world run political ads so I should be open minded. I'm talking about APC, PDP, their supporters and enemies.

And the money is PLENTY! Like, y'all won't believe how much they are throwing at me.. Lol. What do y'all think? Should I run political ads from both parties? It could make me increase LIB Giveaway Mondays, so all of us will chop inside. Lol. Or should I just leave it alone? I'm sincerely confused. *sigh*

Biko run dem ads..but it shudnt b one sided, shud b from both/different political parties

miss sparxz said...

As long as you run ads from all parties,i think its fine. I mean, if you ran ads for only one party, it would seem like you were taking sides in the whole political drama but so long as its ads from all parties and you refrain from publicly stating an opinion, you can avoid being caught in the crossfires.

ary said...

Nigerian politics is dirty and you don't wanna be caught in the middle, remember the sh*t you went through with your website being shutdown, that is nothing compared to the things going into bed with the idiots in both PDP and APC can cause you! My advise, focus on your brand money and forget politics money; no matter how obscene.

In my own opinion, I think you should just let it be. It would definitely give u more advantage and popularity. It would even pay you in future. Let it alone so you can stand out nationally and internationally. Who knows people in other medias both foreign like CNN will grant you interviews cos of it.
Just standout and let God do the hustling and you the bubbling.

Wow, Linda ibu madu. I can't believe you're asking for the opinion of your readers to make more money for yourself. My respect for you just went from 70% to 430%!!!

Aunty do what conscience says, I think you have a good thing going for you but Nigerian politicians can't be trusted. Don't involve yourself with them so that if their opposition wins, they wont come after you.

So much respects for you Linda

If your host(Blogger)permits it,why not...Go ahead n run ads as much as possible. It doesn't affect us in any way.Personal Interest Supercedes every other interest in Politics and Business.So dearest Lindodo take as many ads as possible.

Linda, the moment you try that, it was spoil wat uve worked for ages to build. Am sure u ain't dat poor for dere money to control you. Don't be too greedy looking for more and at d end you will lose your respect and pple will name your blog another thing. Be true to yourself, u don't need that so that you can have peace of mind. I beg u!

Hey Linda, I'd advise you don't accept political ads. You're not everyone. TMZ wouldn't, Perez Hilton wouldn't either. You are blessed already not a panicking hustler. Let them 'politicians' use other mediums they are accustomed to. LIB isn't a platform for wanton flexing of political muscles. Yes, plenty money huh?, you'd still get more the ethical way this year. Top entertainment bloggers don't politicize their blogs. Keep up the good work, Linda!

Sincerely, Chizzy.

chinenye anams said...

first i need to know the reason why you went into blogging, if its to make money, then in business i tell you there are no sentiments you just have to draw the line and be very careful in politics your friend today might be your enemy and vis a vis. i pray the God that brought you this far will direct your paths and order your steps and grant you wisdom to tackle every challenges.

BOMES said...

for me, these are political parties with different fans which can sworn enemies but LIB is for all. Though its a lot of money but don't forget politicians are usually use and dump and you don't want anything affecting your means of livelihood.Don't make LIB a platform for political parties, they are seasonal customers and by February its all gone but the damage you might have caused your platform may be irreparable.

Darling, u ve to be very careful and prayerful, i will advice u to collect d ads cos dats busuness but above all be prayerful n careful. Much love.

BONNY said...

Well Linda, you have never posted my comment but if you will in this case, my advice is if you must do, let there be fairness, equality and openness to all.
Don't restrict yourself to a political party because that will portray you as being a partisan blogger rather than the professional blogger that we know you to be.

If the adds don't make it look like you are taking any side then why not. Just do your best not to portray any affiliation. And also look at the possibility of posting adds from multiple parties so you create a balance and you don't appear to be fronting any particular candidate.

adesh4all said...

Lindodo, Abeg take the political ads jare. Afterall, the decision to chose who to vote lies with the electorate. Advertising both parties shows that you are not partisan but sticking to only one party could imply you have preference.

Bimbo Adesanya said...

Abeg, chop ur own share. Politicians are wicked. Once they win, they'd forget u. Chop them now.

glamfairy diana said...

Aunty linda please take the money jor and post. Afterall it is "our" money too . And please send me small too hehehe

Anonymous said...

I say take the money. There is no business reason not to do so. Your blog is not regulated by any Gov't agency and I presume you will not show bias in whose money you choose to collect. Money has no political affiliation, after all. This is a seasonal thing and once its done, its done. 4 years is a long time, maybe in the next 4 years, you'll be laughing at whatthey're offering because you won't need it. Take it, i say.

.... and like that, he was gone.

Above all I pray that the Almighty God will lead you right and teach you what to do because I know it's easier said than done.

The parties involved are all disgusting and acceptance of such funds is participating in the criminal acts done by these politicians that raised the funds

I know you will be turning down a lot of money but I think it's better to maintain your neutrality. You are slowly becoming an icon and a role model for many people and your blog is read at least ten times more than any blog in Nigeria. The money won't change much for you but if for any reason you are perceived as supporting any party, it will definitely have some consequences... Plus if you take the adds, it will dominate your blog and juicy stories (the main selling point of your blog) will suffer it. My advice is for you is to turn it down....

Ask Ralph said...

Politics could be quite dangerous. If you decide to take any ads just make it clear it doesnt mean you are supporting only that party and that you are also free to run ads for other political parties. Because the people should have a choice. Let nobody restrict you to run for only their party.

But if it's something you cannot handle then just let it go. They can keep their money and you would still get plenty money from other ad campaigns.

If this wold put you in danger of any kind. Just let it go. I'm sure you already know it won't be worth it by then. Hope you make the right decision.
