FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Paid Blogging, So Far A Bust

Last month I wrote a blog on whether you can maintain an ethical perspective and review or recommend a product or site. Perhaps I should have also asked if those who supposedly pay you for these blogs actually have the ethics to pay you. Creamaid was where I signed up and for whom I wrote a blog. Near as I can tell, Creamaid is either defunct, fraudulent or grossly incompetent. (I know say what you mean.) I got butkus back from them, feedback, money, nada.

Maybe that means that my blog doesn’t draw enough folks but leaving me blow in the wind is just plain rude let alone incompetent. So I have done more research and I see that there are more sites out there that pay for reviews.

I am looking at Netrix , an internet marketing blog and clicked on an ad for sponsored reviews which took me to a blog called Everybody Go To.

Hyder who writes the blog reviewed Sponsored Reviews and Review Me. Hyder, (wonder why so few folks who blog use pseudonyms and or no last names) likes both of these paid for review vendors much better than Pay Per Post. I guess they have both paid him. Anyway, I will be trying these two and let you know what I think. Click here if you want a refresher on my initial blog on ethics and paid blogging. Obviously I feel you can have both ethics and get paid.
