For years and years, I’ve always been pretty skeptical about the whole blog marketing scheme. As far as I’m concerned, that’s what lead to spam comments and trackbacks that are the biggest pain ever, and that’s always left a bad taste in my mouth.
A while back, maybe six months ago, I signed up with PayPerPost just to check things out. I didn’t hop on the bandwagon right away, because I was still leery about forcing people to read stuff they didn’t want to. And really, I’m not sure what made me change my mind. I just know that by writing about things that interest me, I’ve made almost $300.
While there are absolutely frivolous things I could buy with that amount of money, I’ve donated $50 of it so far to The 3 Day. Even though donating more of it will mean I’ll be that much closer to shaving my head, I plan on donating the rest of it, too.
