Getting Paid to Blog

I found this post interesting. Although I don’t consider myself much of a blogger, bills do have to be paid.

Its as though one loses their status as a “real blogger the instant you put up Google Adwords, or start selling ad space as though the purity of your writings takes on a different cast because, well, youve got to pay the bills.

As Tony mentions, ads on a website are one thing but PayPerPost is totally different. Having contextual ads makes perfect sense and I actually do use them sometimes. When I read a blog it’s because I actually care about what’s going on there, I’m into the topic. So I would be more inclined to look into ads that were about a topic that interests me.

I say go ahead bloggers. Enjoy, you’ve worked hard.
