I sold out to PayPerPost

PayPerPost, now under the company umbrella IZEA does exactly what the name suggests. PayPerPost, pays bloggers for a specific post. Companies want to get the word out about their products. There is no better way to do that than to have bloggers with a built in audience write about their products.

There is of course controversy surrounding getting paid for posts. I mean who really wants to read a blog that is basically an ad. I think the key is choosing to write about posts that your readers will be interested in. I of course don’t want to alienate anyone from continuing to read I also plan to limit the paid posts to about one a month.

The company also requires you to let your readers know that the post is a sponsored post so there is no confusion.

So why did I do it? Why did I sell out to PayPerPost? Basically, all I want to do is cover my hosting costs. Will I make a ton of money with PayPerPost? Probably not! Will I cover my hosting costs? I can only hope so.

In full disclosure, I was promised $20 for this review of their service. Not a bad deal for this post.
