PayPerPost announced earlier this week that it is requiring bloggers to disclose payments they receive for their blog posts. Even though I don’t have any moral issues with this type of practice, I do like this decision, as it brings more transparency into people’s recommendations. I believe such disclosure will not necessarily cause less credibility to the post simply because the blogger received a payment. If the post is detailed and thorough, the information there is still going to be valuable.
The “get paid to blog” business is growing, and it’s already much bigger than I had thought.Â When I started doing research for this topic, I kept finding new sites that are offering to match up advertisers and bloggers.Â Originally I was going to provide a list of top sites, but there are just too many sites!
