So, a question for all of you. Lurkers too.
Over the course of the past few months I’ve gotten a few offers to write posts in exchange for money (really small amounts of money) or goods. There were some that I’ve felt squicky about, because it was clear that I was supposed to bury a link somewhere in the post and NOT mention that it was a link to an advertiser. I won’t do that.
I’ve kept the blog advertising free, mostly because I don’t want to deal with it the upkeep of the “monetizing” aspect.
But what if I were to review things? Would it be weird for you? I would of course say “this is a review of x” and I would only accept on the condition that it could be an actual review–and they are not expecting a favorable rating.
I’m kind of interested in the meta of it all, that people out there want my opinions of things that I am not necessarily an expert in solely because I have kids, or because I live in Israel, or whatever.
