As I mentioned in my post about The Mist below, I have signed up for Pay Per Post. I found out about this from a friend of mine on a message board, and I was initially reluctant. I've been to home parties before (for those of you who don't know: Tupperware, Princess House, PartyLite, Pampered Chef, etc., etc., etc.), and I always thought to myself "I could never have people over my house just to ask them to buy stuff."
I decided to do this after tallying up my debt level, and realizing that I need to make more money. I am working on cutting back our budget at home, but in the meantime, I'm trying to bring home as much money as I possibly can. So now I'm thinking "yeah, if I have to, I'll invite people over my house just to ask them to buy stuff."
Not that I'm asking anyone to buy stuff. Pay Per Post asks you to take "opportunities" to talk about particular subjects on your blog. Some of the sponsors are asking for a positive review; some are just trying to create buzz, so any discussion at all is sought. They do require that you disclose your association with Pay Per Post when you have a post up that was inspired by a PPP opportunity
The Mist was an easy one for me - it's a story I enjoyed and a movie I don't mind talking about. I'm interested in it.
I hope I can find more such opportunities, because I need the cash!
My promise to you, my sporadic and quiet and occasionally invisible and non-existent readers, is that I will always be honest and upfront about any Pay Per Post posts. I apologize for having what are essentially advertisements as blog content, but I hope you will understand that my financial situation requires drastic measures.
Thanks for reading.
