A new web site offers both free advertising and a cure for writer’s block.

Launched two months ago, bloggerdise.com connects businesses searching for free publicity with bloggers searching for something to write about.

A business might send a blogger a product to test, and then offer discount or giveaways to readers, Eric Rogow, one of the site’s creators said.

“We can take any type of business, service, or nonprofit and connect them with bloggers,” he said. “They can spread the word about initiatives and get a free advertising space.”

Aside from getting free goods and services to try, and something to blog about, bloggers can offer their readers deals on the products, Rogow said.

“Generally they get a discount, or a free item -- and the blogger can have a contest,” Rogow said.

For example, Sublime Stitching, one of the businesses currently on the site, is offering bloggers the chance to preview its needlework patterns.

“Sublime Stitching would be interested in previewing patterns with bloggers as well as providing embroidery design tips,” the site says. “And of course, they’d be open to any blog giveaway and offer ideas.”
