BLOGGER BOOTCAMP: Nominee Ruby Wright shares sponsorship and endorsement tips


BLOGGER BOOTCAMP: Getting sponsorship and other paid endorsements 
Tips from popular blogger Ruby Wright, founder of Growing Up

( – Bloggers are making a ton of cash by writing compelling blog posts, publishing rare or informative photos and providing their readers with need-to-know information and product reviews. But did you know that Fortune 500 companies like Kellogg’s, General Mills and Procter and Gamble are also looking for bloggers to help extend their brands and to “make it personal” with potential and long-time consumers?

In this edition of Blogger Bootcamp with DC Livers, we talk with highly acclaimed blogger RUBY WRIGHT founder of “Growing Up Blackxican” about her recent news that McDonald’s has signed on to be one of her sponsors and about the other financial endorsements she has been able to obtain.

“I have been very lucky this year to be invited to attend various blogger conferences. I attended Blogalicious in Las Vegas thanks to my awesome sponsor McDonalds,” said Ruby.
