I know for me, blogging is a passion. I do it because I really like the information that I generate and the feedback that I get from people. I feel that I am really contributing to the blogosphere. And that is evident by the number of times Digg has taken down my sight (and the number of times my web host has “suggested” that I get dedicated hosting!).
I would love to start blogging full time but unfortunately I have bills to pay and mouths to feed. As you can see, I have a few advertisements on my site but I don’t want to be come one of those sites that is 75% ads and 25% content. I don’t think that there is a lot of benefit to that.
Enter LoudLaunch. This is a new website that works off a model similar to some other pay per post sites. But, I have noticed that there are a couple of differences.
The biggest difference is that they aren’t interested in “stealth” marketing. You will see at the bottom of this post (which is sponsored by LoudLaunch) that there is a very clear statement indicating that this is a LoudLaunch campaign. No hiding links in your posts to “trick” people into visiting websites you have no interest in.
Another difference is that they are willing to let you advertise for free! You are welcome to submit a free campaign at any time. This can help to generate traffic to your website as well. Or, if you want to spend a little bit of money to ensure that you get some traffic, you can start a paid campaign for as little as $50.
The final difference is that you can write absolutely anything you want about the campaign. While there are generally a few requirements, you are free to be as honest as you want about the campaign. If you think the product is the worst thing in the world, you are free to say it!
I have to admit that I was skeptical at first and that I am not 100% convinced yet because there seems to only be a few active paying campaigns right now that I would be willing to write about but I think it is worth a look at least.
