PayPerPost – An Alternative Way to Create Some Revenue For Your Blog

By Erik Folgate

I am still relatively new to the personal financial blogging community, and one thing that I can say is that 9 out of the 10 blogs out there are genuine about wanting to share about our personal financial struggles and successes with the hope of helping each other out.  I hope that those of you that read my blog think the same of this blog.  Since we produce a large amount of quality information and content, I do believe that we should take steps to monetizing our blogs in a non-invasive way. 

One day, I stumbled across PayPerPost, which is a website that brings bloggers and advertisers together.  Basically, the way the website works is that you search for relevant advertisements for your blog.  Then, you blog about that ad, and they pay you a fixed amount per blog post.  I was very skeptical at first, because I did not want people to think that every post that I wrote was some kind of advertisement.  But once I read their terms and conditions, I developed a respect for the company.  The rules for PayPerPost are simple.  First, your blog has to be approved.  Then, you are only allowed to receive compensation for up to 3 posts per day.  So, this eliminates the people whom would just throw up a blog and create posts that are entirely ad related.  Also, you cannot have consecutive ad-related posts on your blog.  Lastly, they will not approve your post if your blog has not been around for at least 90 days. 

These terms and conditions assured me that this is a legitimate business that does not want to destroy the blogging communities by flooding them with advertisement posts.  Many of the advertisements could create value in blogs as readers may benefit from some of the companies talked about.  Once again, no one is going to get rich off of participating with this company, but it is just another non-invasive way to make a little coin on your blog to cover the expenses for web hosting and your time that takes to write a quality post.

    I have stopped reading every single blog which participates in PayPerPost, and I will immediately stop reading yours as well. By participating in PPP, you are selling out your audience for pocket change, and you’re letting your position of trust and influence be corrupted by advertisers.

    Google AdSense, Text Link Ads, hell even those annoying banner pop-ups aren’t as bad as PayPerPost. At least with those it should be obvious to the reader that they’re advertisements. With PayPerPost, your readers may think you’re actively endorsing a product even if you’re just talking about it for the money.

    I hope you’ll reconsider joining the cesspoll of PayPerPosters, and then perhaps I’ll reconsider reading your blog once again.
