How Much for a Post on Your Blog?

There’s a new company called Pay per post that launched recently that has been getting a whole lot of attention.

Sites like Techcrunch and Techmeme contain some fierce discussions on the morality of this company. Is getting paid to write a post about something unethical to the blogger ‘profession’? Right now, most seem to be leaning towards the view that this is immoral and are saying things like “this will destroy bloggers” (that was one of the headlines about this Payperpost company on Digg).

Apparently the issue is that people who are doing this aren’t disclosing the fact that it’s a paid post. This is the issue for the majority of naysayers that differentiates Payperpost from other sites that basically pay you to blog (Google Adsense, Amazon affiliate links, and similar things that are popular with the blogger crowd). Me? I say with disclosure, it’s fine.

And yes, this is a ‘sponsored’ post.

Edit: Here’s what I saw at the Techcrunch blog about this company:
