How to Write Up a Contract for a Blogger

A blogger can bring extra eyes to your message via the Internet. If you wish to sell a product or service, hiring a blogger can boost your reputation in the industry. A blog offers up advice, interviews, emerging trends and other important information about a particular topic online. If you wish to hire a blogger on your behalf, you will first need to draw up a contract. You don't need to hire an attorney to write the contract -- the steps for doing so can be completed by anyone.

Write the essentials. Use the name of your company and the name of the blogger you wish to hire. Include contact information for both parties. The top of the contract should read: “Contract between Company X and Blogger Y.”

Write the terms. Write down exactly what the blogger is required to do. Delineate how often the blogger needs to create posts, the size of posts, the content of posts and anything else you wish to place into the contract. Talk about the compensation for the blogger. The payment form can hourly, a salary or a percentage of revenue. Add in additional terms if you wish to do so. For example, you can add a forum selection clause to state where legal proceedings would be held in the case of a breach of this contract.

Obtain the signature. Have the blogger sign the contract. Sign the contract on behalf of your organization. You now have a legally binding contract with a blogger.
