SPONSORED POSTS

I’ve had quite a few inquiries recently for sponsored blog posts recently, so I’m happy to provide sponsored posts for products that are consistent with the spirit of I Heart Guitar. The cost is $100 for a sponsored blog post which would be supported by Facebook/Twitter posts as well as Stumbleupon/Reddit/Digg submissions. Sponsored posts would maintain their own link right above the menu section on each page too for 30 days from initial publication, and would be clearly marked as a sponsored post.

WHO’S MENTIONED I HEART GUITAR?

Total Guitar
Blog of the Week (September 2010): I Heart Guitar “Peter, who lives with his wife and four year-old son in Melbourne, was already a freelance writer for several Australian music-making magazines when he started the blog in 2008.

“I’ve been lucky to get some great interviews like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Dave Mustaine, Zakk Wylde, Ace Frehley, Bob Taylor, John Petrucci and Paul Gilbert (who wrote a guest post about one of his Ibanez Fireman customs),” says Peter. “But the most enjoyable (and time-consuming) part is writing gear reviews.”

“I also write the occasional off-kilter opinion piece to satisfy my secret dream of being a comedy writer! I try to keep the site a positive place and I hope my enthusiasm for the guitar and the music it produces comes through.”

He’s no slouch as a player either and Peter was crowned Melbourne’s Best Shredder in 2004 (sponsored by awesome Aussie radio station Triple M), not to mention gigging with his own band The Upperhand and playing as a session musician.”

Guitar International
Great Guitar Blogs: I Heart Guitar (July 2010):
“In my discussions with guitar bloggers I’ve noticed that many of them enter the field as either full-time web designers who played guitar, or full-time guitarists who did web design. While this is true in many cases, Hodgson has taken a different route on his journey to becoming a guitar blogger. For one, he didn’t really have a technological background, but what he did have was an extensive track record as a performer and music journalist for Australian music magazines such as Mixdown, Australian Guitar and Australian Musician Magazine.”

Tech – What Is Twitter? (May 2009)Perhaps the most interesting reads, however, are the many guitar bloggers on Twitter. Bloggers like I Heart Guitar’s Peter Hodgson and Guitar Noize’s Jon Bloomer both post regularly, from what they’re listing to at the moment to guitar news and everything in between.

Twitter Map (July 2009)

Guitar Edge
Article on I Heart Guitar – “This guitar blog maintained by Peter Hodgson is a rapidly growing site, thanks in large part to his prolific yet engaging Twitter presence. Updated daily with industry news, press releases, new gear announcements, and occasional interviews, it’s readily apparent that Hodgson truly does “heart guitar.”

While most of the posts are press releases for new gear, Hodgson is as current on it as anyone out there, even beating a few more established “corporate” guitar sites to the punch on many of them. He’s also secured some pretty big names for interviews, including recent chats with Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis (June 29) and Chickenfoot’s Joe Satriani (June 16).”

Jemsite Blog
We Heart Hodgson (July 2009)- “Some great news came my way the other day. Peter Hodgson, the hip guitarist who writes the I Heart Guitar blog, is being featured on DiMarzio Inc., maker of some of the best guitar pickups in the world. They’re using clips of his guitar playing on their website to showcase their John Petrucci (Dream Theater) signature pickups, the Crunch Lab 7 and LiquFire 7.”

Gear-Vault
Top Guitars Blogs – “iheartguitar is making waves not only online, but in print. This blog is pure professionalism. His content is very well written and the writer (Peter) flows with knowledge, and his website’s name [iheartguitar] is the perfect name for Peter, because he truly does love guitars. Read his blog and you’ll quickly see how passionate he really is. Keep up the good work Peter!”

    Dear all at iheartguitarblog.com,

    Apologies for contacting you unannounced but may I take a minute of your time in order to introduce myself and explain why I am getting in touch. My name is Simon Raw and I have just created a company in the UK to showcase my guitar designs. My designs are heavily influenced by my love of the Blues, especially my “Something Series”, as they incorporate design features that are old, new, borrowed and blue.

    My background is in industrial design and ergonomics and over the past 10 years I have run my own occupational ergonomics consultancy specialising in hand-arm vibration and noise prevention and I am proud to cite Bentley Motors, Caterpillar Group, Rolls-Royce Motorcars and Triumph Motorcycles as clients. Having graduated in 1991 as an industrial design engineer followed in 1992 as an ergonomist it was within the field of ergonomics that my career moved into. Consequently, my creativity and design skills have been laying dormant and forming The Raw Guitar Co. has opened the floodgates, creatively speaking, and energised myself into the process. If you can spare a moment please take a look at http://www.rawguitars.net/ for further information on who I am and what I have designed. If you like what I have designed any advice on how to move forward would be most welcome, thank you.

    Having created The Raw Guitar Co. and launched my website last week I am now working to promote my designs hence my e-mail today. I have also started to show my designs to musicians too and Ian Siegal has asked if I could design and make him a guitar to take out on tour with Wilko Johnson later this year. I’m extremely proud that Ian likes my work because I’m a new “kid” on the guitar block and having a professional musician on board has given me an enormous boost in confidence.

    I look forward to hearing your comments in due course.

    Many thanks for your time.

    With best wishes

    Simon Raw
    The Raw Guitar Co.

Peter Hodgson Hi! I'm Peter Hodgson. I write for Gibson.com, Australian Guitar, Australian Musician, Mixdown Magazine (including my instructional column, 'Unleash Your Inner Rock God,' which has been running since 2007), BluntBeat (including their weekly hard rock/metal column Crunch) and The Brag. And I'm Assistant Social Coordinator with Seymour Duncan. I've been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and I've been writing for magazines since I was 18. I've also worked as a guitar teacher (up to 50 students a week), a setup tech, a newspaper editor, and I've also dabbled in radio a little bit. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and my hobbies include drinking way too much coffee, and eating way too much Mexican food. You can check out my guitar playing at Bandcamp or on YouTube, and feel free to email me at iheartguitarblog@gmail.com If you'd like to support the site, feel free to kick in a couple o'bucks using this donation button.
