Planning to go on a long holiday and wondering what to do with your blog? Now you can hire a professional blogger who will act like a blogsitter and will blog in your absence while you travel around the world on a vacation.
The Google Blogoscoped points to a new service called Blogsitter
blogsitter.net is the plattform for bloggers who need caring people to sit their blogs. Register and place your advertisment to search for a fitting blogsitter. Someone who has your skills in the field of your blog, someone who is trustful and eager to care about your blog.
The site seems to be still under active development. But will you be willing to hand over your blog to some unknown stranger? Depends on how long you are gone and how popular your blog is and if your “loyal” readers might be gone once you come back after a month. Guest blogging is also a good alternative if you have enough loyal blogger friends. Alternatively some blogging softwares allow you to create advance posts, which automatically post when they are dated in the future. The safest way I have seen is to stop blogging and put up a notice when you would be back.
