Pays You To Blog Shill Without Disclosure

As a professional blogger, I spend my mornings in my kitchen, visible smell waves oscillating off of me, typing out my morning posts at a make-shift desk made up entirely of old beer cans. A misanthropic shut-in, I have no real idea of how the outside world works, which I find to be the prerequisite to confidently usher forth my opinions to the same. Facts can only muddle up the purity of my platitudes. it’s really a lot like being an extremely well-paid ignoramus.

But not all of us bloggers are lucky enough to be employed by Gawker. Enter, who will subsidize your opinionated feculence. As they describe themselves:

    You’ve been writing about Web sites, products, services and companies you love for years and you have yet to benefit from all the sales and traffic you have helped generate. That’s about to change. With PayPerPost

    advertisers are willing to pay you to post on topics. Search through a list of topics, make a blog posting, get your content approved, and get paid. It’s that simple.

They claim bloggers don’t even need to disclose that they are paid shills! We’re a bit curious how the FTC would feel about that.

Anyway, all of this is just prelude to this exciting news update: AOL RULES!

  1. Wow, am I a freak that I would be uncomfortable to get paid to post something good about something, purely for profit?

    I like being able to say what I want without having to have it approved by ‘the man’.

  2. yeah but if you were going to write about it anyway, its an awesome deal.
    For example, just last week I was on vacation at the beach in FL. They
    have an offer to write about your vacation in FL. I do something I was
    going to do anyway and get paid $2.50 for it.
    The only worrisome part is that they dont require any kind of disclosure.
