Selling One's Bloggable Soul
Y'all may have noticed that I eschew anything on this blog that will make me any money, be it pop-up ads or Amazon.com mentions. This is, apparently, because I fear money. If I get too much of it I'll freak out and do something crazy like pay off my college loans, I guess. This also explains why I am a librarian. A pity I'm not inclined towards making a fast buck since it now looks like companies are seriously interested in getting some product placement into the blogosphere. It's $5 or $10 a post, at least. The crazy part? Nothing stipulates that the bloggers have to keep the deal a secret. The Internet is a vast and peculiar space.
