A couple of weeks ago I talked with a nice company for a collaboration. I told them about my conditions and all that kind of stuff, but it still went wrong. The company wanted to do follow links in the article after the article went online. I am obviously against this and I actually never use this. This is one of the reasons why I have made a condition document.
A condition document
Astrid from Miss Sentinelli has written an article how you could make a condition doc. This article is in Dutch so you probably can’t read it haha. Because of this article, I was thinking about making a condition doc. Still, I didn’t think I needed this doc because almost all my collaborations went well. Still, a collaboration went wrong. A company wanted to do follow links in the article after I published the article and in the past, I’ve had problems as well. Well, then I knew it for sure. I needed to make a condition doc.
How does my condition document look like?
I’ve got a lot of tips out of the article of Astrid. The most things which are in my condition document, are from Astrid. As you can see, I’ve written in the condition doc that I write all the articles myself. This is very important for me and I don’t want to put articles online which are written by companies. Of course, I have put the opportunities for a company in my doc and how I want to work. I think it is also really important to say I don’t use any do follow links and under every article, I place a sign what tells my readers I am collaborating or not. I always stay honest with my readers.
When do I use this document?
I am going to use this doc when I got an email for a collaboration. When I am interested, I will send this condition doc to the company so they know the conditions I use.
Are you going to make this kind of condition document as well?
