It’s been a few months since PayPerPost sent me an email about signing up, and I’ve seen enough posts about it that I decided it was time to join. After all, one of the wonderful opportunities that blogging provides is a chance to make a little money. In fact, they’re paying me $20 to write this post.
I do have a couple of gripes about their web site. I guess they’re trying to be cute or different by using uncommon terminology – members are not “members” or “affiliates” but “Posties.” That sounds ridiculous enough that I’m still not 100% convinced that they’re actually referring to me. And there’s something about the way the site is set up that’s just not instinctive to me. It doesn’t look right and it doesn’t feel right, although I’m sure I could get used to it. It’s just a matter of whether I feel I’m getting enough out of the site to make it worth my while to spend a lot of time on it.
Which brings me to an important point: as always, whenever I’m writing a sponsored post, I will clearly disclose that sponsorship to you. In fact, PPP requires at least some disclosure. I just want to assure you that I’ll let you know if I’m being paid to write a specific post.
And of course, I’ll select opportunities that I think will be of interest to you. I’ll also let you know what I think of PPP in terms of making money. I always find it interesting to come across posts like that on other blogs, so I figure some of you would find it interesting as well.
