    I know I’m a year late to this discussion, but I’d like to chime in as I’m a Blogcritics writer. Yes I write for free – FOR THEM. Let me paint a picture of my life – I’m a freelance writer and I  get paid to write articles for print and digital media, but none of them have me reviewing theatre. I LOVE theatre, but it’s expensive. So, by contributing to Blogcritics for free, I get free press review theatre tickets to the best, biggest, most expensive shows – which sometimes includes a nice reception or celebrity gala too. So to me, despite being a very established writer for the last 15 years, like MaryAnn  here, this is a win-win situation for me. I get very good tickets – usually a pair of tickets which means I get to take mum or a friend along – to the best shows – and for that I simply have to write a review, which I can pen within an hour – who wouldn’t want that?
