Discussion: Pay Per Post “Advertising”

Blogging etiquette is always a hot topic swirling amongst bloggers (and one we’ll discuss in an upcoming BlogTalk Radio segment).  Everyone is looking to turn their online venture into the next cash cow, but would you accept money to write a post on a topic, even if you weren’t interested? 

This is the premise behind such websites as PayPerPost and ReviewMe.  PayPerPost offers products, websites or services to review on a flat fee basis, whereas ReviewMe allows companies to bid on a post appearing on your website.  

Similar to sampling etiquette, the ethical question remains whether or not to disclose the motivation behind your posting.  

Would you take part in pay-per-postings sites? Have you and would you again?
