The dilemma of blog Consulting fees

Today I had my first meeting with a client who wants me to be a blogging consultant for his small service firm.

I've agreed and have taken some time to get back to him with a pricing model for my services.

That's the biggest challenge I am facing these days. How do you bill for a service that is so different, and which is a hobby for most people (me included) ? In fact Hugh nails it in this cartoon.

Current thoughts are to bill a certain amout for time spent over the next six months and to ask for a share of additional business they will get as a a result of the blog being there.

Anyone has a better idea?
