Yehey to Launch Blog Network


Philippine portal Yehey plans to launch a blog network in two months. Here’s what I’ve gathered from Yehey Business Development Officer Iggy Javellana:

  • Yehey’s bloggers will be experts on various Philippine niches. They include filmmaker Quark Henares and gamer Alodia Gosiengfiao (as earlier reported). Around forty niche experts have been approached so far.
  • Yehey’s bloggers will be required to post at least twice per week.
  • Yehey’s bloggers will receive a base pay, plus ad revenue shares.
  • Yehey’s blogs will probably not be on the Yehey.com domain.
  • Yehey’s blogs will use high-end blogging software, probably WordPress.
  • Iggy will provide basic training for Yehey’s bloggers — how to avoid libel and copyright issues, etc.
  • All plans for Yehey’s blogs will be finalized within two weeks. Development timeframe is six weeks after that.

Eventually, Iggy hopes to provide blogs for all Yehey users. In the future, Yehey users who accumulate a lot of traffic to their blogs will then get a shot at revenue-sharing, a la YouTube’s partner program. Click here to continue reading “Yehey to Launch Blog Network”…
