Paid Blogging With Blogsvertise

A little while I signed up at blogsvertise.com. The site pays people to blog about sites that they might otherwise mention for free. So it’s a pretty good deal, if you get accepted. Some people think paid blogging is bad news, but I don’t see it that way.

Tiger Woods gets paid to endorse products. It’s up to the viewer, or in this case web surfer, to evaluate for him or herself whether a product or site is for them. Blogsvertise just helps get the messages of people and companies out there.

Blogsvertise reminds me of an SNL sketch where Mango, played by Chris Kattan, endorsed a product, and was later sent a free case of it. Mango was famous, and his spreading the word about something was valuable. Blogging has always been like that, and now Blogsvertise adds this whole new level of mediating between people who want to be heard and people who already are. Sounds good to me!
