Checking out PayPerPost

Yes, I am going to join PayPerPost. Maybe this makes me a media whore, I don't know.

I think it's a neat idea, and one that has been a long time coming. And frankly, I think that it's good to get it out in the open about paid blog posts, otherwise things could get decidedly murky. Right now I'm going to try this out and I'll let you know if they actually pay out. I also want to see if they are offering reviews of anything financial that I haven't heard about because that could be interesting. We'll see.

For those of you who live under a spacious and comfortable rock from which you never emerge, PayPerPost ( is a new service where bloggers sign up to review various things for, well, pay. Check it out if you're interested.

The issue I have with the site so far is that it is woefully sparse. There's no information on payment (which, presumably, is on the minds of all the bloggers who use it) which makes me nervous that they don't actually have a way to pay you yet. And I would be really pissed if there were a minimum for cashout. They're using Paypal which is a pretty cheap way to send money, all things considered. And right now there are only twenty offers available, including this one. So I hope that they come up with some more paying customers soon, and some things on finance.

They Pay you through Paypal. Also, google payperpost and see how much bloggers are against this, it's funny.

I know that is how they are supposed to pay you, but I'm wondering more if they're going to remain solvent long enough to pay anybody. They don't have any details about payment schedules like most websites of this type do.

I think bloggers like to get all righteous about it, but hey, their site is filled with ads, so they must not be totally against making a buck off their readers.

Keep us posted on how this goes for you. I hope it works out.
