I’m not going to lie to you – I began blogging regularly like this to earn money. When you’re in a band that has regular gigs to play it can be difficult to find a job that fits, and blogging just seemed to have the flexibility I was looking for whilst not destroying my soul like some other jobs I have taken (Data Entry is not as fun as it sounds.)
My girlfriend recently introduced me to a method of making definate amounts of cash from my blog. If you yourself are a blogger/ thinking about becoming a blogger, you’ll probably know that the income generated from a blog can be hilly at best. The number of clicks you get on your ads can vary from one day to the next. That is why I was happy to hear about this company…
PayPerPost are a blog marketing company that pay you to do sponsored posts. This may sound like “Selling out” if you are a purist, but since you choose the blogs you write, how is it? So long as you keep the sponsored posts relevant (I assure you that I won’t be advertising some obscure gambling website here any time soon) then there is no harm done to your reputation! Win-win much?
All it seems to me is that if you too are a band member with a money-making blog, this is a method of supporting yourself between gigs that is a lot more consistent than banner ads. It’s definately worth giving them a look.
