Contrary to what Blonde Chick has eluded to, I do still occasionally look for the good Pay Per Post opportunity. Sure, it's a shameless tactic to get some money by letting sponsors advertise on blogs. That's one way to look at it. Or you can look at it that if you're going to blog anyway, why not get paid for a post or two?
To date, I have made a little over $180 from the whole Pay Per Post program. Not bad considering all it took was me writing a few blurbs here and there. Even though it could only be used via PayPal, that loot still came in handy to pick up some things online.
It could have been much more if I had more traffic on my page. The higher my page rank, the more opportunities I would have had available to me. There were some that were paying as high as $1,000 for blogging about their products. Don't think I'm not doing what I can to get that page rank up. So far, it's gone from 0 to 1 and it only tooke me a year (yes, that is the thin aroma of sarcasm you're smelling)!
Lately, they've made the guidelines a lot more stringent. They seem to be geariing their opps toward the higher traffic blogs and leaving out us little people. They may come back around some day and then I can be back on board to dropping my nuggets.
