A Note From The Woman Behind The Curtain

Did that last post seem a little weird to you? There's a reason for that. It was a shameless plug...well, maybe a delayed shame plug. I signed up with Blogvertise a few weeks ago. This is how they say it works, taken from their FAQ page.
"Our blog advertising service is setup for bloggers and online journal writers to earn revenue/income from their online blog/journal in an easy to use, simple and effective system. It is free to register your blog and add your blog to the system for approval. Once approved, your blog goes into the assignment queue. The blogsvertise administrator then assigns writing tasks for what our advertisers want you to mention in your blog. You don't have to endorse the website product/service, just mention it in your blog and link to the advertiser website 3 times in your entry."
I've been asked to plug online gaming sites mostly, but I never wrote about them because well, they were dumb. Then I was asked to plug the wedding site so I did and that was the subject of the last post. I'm not sure if I'll be paid for it or not. That assignment was supposed to pay $5 after 30 days, but I think I have to provide my social security number first, and I'm very leery about giving that information out freely. We'll see. Just wanted to explain. In the future, if you see a post with a label that reads "plug", just keep in mind that I was paid to do it. Does that make me a blogging whore?

If you're interested in checking out some pay-per-post sites, here are some others I've found that seem to be more credible than most. Sign up at your own risk, I'm just sharing here, please do not consider it a gun to your head.
