What would my vast number of readers think if I started advertising products in my blog postings? These are called “pay per post.”
The way it would work is I get a list of advertisers who would be willing to pay me if I post about their product (even if I say bad things about them). I then choose the product I would write about and I give you my thoughts on the item/website/service. And, this is the important part, I would always tell you when I am getting paid for that posting. So nothing is hidden. You always know what is an ad and what is not.
I already have ads on the website. You just don’t know it. Every time I post a book review (like the post before this one) I put a link in there for you to buy the book at Amazon. You never do. Or, at least no one has yet. But, that is an ad and I get compensation if you buy that book, or any other book after going to Amazon through that link.
Are you offended by that? You should be less offended if I actually tell you up front that these posts are advertisements. And, I could actually make a little money to pay for new running shoes and such. That would be cool.
I have heard about this for some time. But after reading about it on Stephen the Dog‘s blog, I thought I would give it more of an inspection.
Tell me what you think. I have heard precious little from my readers recently (thank you for being there for me Terry). I don’t even know if my own Mother is reading anymore. Sad isn’t it? So, if I don’t hear much negative about it soon, then I think I will sign up.
