Ask Amy: How long should I wait to follow up my pitch to a blogger?
Earlier this week I discussed followup on magazine submissions. Blogs are faster moving targets and the writers behind them know immediately if your product works or not. A pitch/idea may be posted 20 minutes after submission or four days later. Your job is to pay attention and read the blog. Assume it's not a good fit if they don't run it within a week. The only follow-up you want to make to a blogger is a "thank you" if they publish it.
