I get these all the time, as do many bloggers. I don’t know anyone who’s taken them up on their offer, but I’d break down the offer and consider if carefully vs why you blog.
1. Sharing your knowledge.
This would no longer be your content. I may be a bit of a control freak, but consider the quality that they would be producing and the topic focus. 2. Authenticity
You would no longer be the voice of your own blog. This seems quite opposite of the definition of a blog should be. 3. Content
Yes, you may approve the content, but it’s still not your content. What if you decide later on you want to get rid of it. What does the fine print say? I’d look over that fine print very carefully.

Just my 2c.
