In my ongoing experimentation with online advertising and paid writing services, I signed up for payperpost to see how it works. As with other sponsored posts here, any post written at payperpost‘s request will be clearly marked as such — in fact, it’s a payperpost requirement!
I’ve seen a lot of other blogs, especially those of other writers, that use payperpost and seem to like it, so I thought I’d give it a try and see what I think. It’s not that I’m especially looking to make this blog into a money-making concern — I’ve been blogging since 2000 without worrying overmuch about whether it paid the bills, or even paid for itself — but it seems like an interesting challenge. Since I’m looking to expand my writing business into copywriting, writing for the effectively random sponsors payperpost hooks bloggers up with should be good practice.
That doesn’t mean I don’t see payperpost becoming a solid source of revenue in its own right. I teach and I write at lifehack.org and I do some writing and designing for clients here in Vegas, so it’s not going to become my main income source, but a few extra dollars here and there never hurts, right? I’ll see what opportunities payperpost lists over the next few weeks and build a schedule — one/day, 3/week, whatever seems sustainable.
