What rate should I charge for a monthly blog?


I have been asked by a site what my going rate would be to do a monthly blog. I haven't been offered an ongoing writing job like this before and I'm not sure what to charge. I would like the job and don't want to lose it by giving the wrong rate. The job would involve about 3 to 5 hours research and a blog of about 1000 to 1500 words on a monthly basis. They want me to engage with customers through my blog and help promote their product. Thank you in advance.

    I suppose charging per word makes sense as I probably will have a different lenght blog each month depending on what's worth blogging about. Tanx for the advice :)

    Tanx Karen. It's kinda like a fashion blog but more than that, so I think anyone reading or at least I hope anyone reading will be already interested in the product.

    I appreciate you breaking down the rate and I'll certainly take heed of your tips.
