A few Serious Eats community members have been confused by a number of recent sponsored posts we have put up. Sponsored posts are clearly marked as such, and we have just added a couple of sentences at the start of these posts that clearly lets people know that in advance. Sponsored posts make a meaningful difference to our bottom line, and give us the wherewithal to keep producing the hundreds of fresh posts a week we produce for you, our treasured community. So given that sponsored posts are not going away any time soon (unless our revenue model changes), we welcome any ideas about how we might do them better. Thoughts, serious eaters?
