What is Pay Per Post Blogging? And Who’s Doing It?
I recently read a stat on Twitter that said: “34% of bloggers post opinions about products, brands, and services.”
Pay per post blogging (which I see from research came into prominence some time in 2006) is slowly becoming the primary method for how many bloggers earn money online. If I was going to put my finger (sort to speak) on what sector of blogging that has really capitalized on this opportunity, it would have to be “Mommy Bloggers”. Think about it. What blogging group has access to the ideal target market for advertisers? – other Mothers, of course!
Now normally, it’s you who dictates the content of your blog. With pay per post blogging, you are writing sponsored posts and reviews for advertisers wanting to give greater exposure to their products and services. Your goal is to locate an opportunity and introduce it ever-so-subtle to your blog’s present readership as to not be disruptive.
The pay per post concept is the best method to find the right advertisers for you as a blogger and for advertisers to locate the kind of writer that best represents what they are trying to accomplish.
The role of pay per post blogging sites is to match advertiser and writer all in one place. Of course there are guidelines – such as the number of links to display, as well as other factors including creativity, originality, and length. When the deed is done, the pay per post site will take a cut of your earnings – thank you very much!
What was surprising to me was how much advertisers were willing to pay for your services. I’ve seen amounts as little as $2, to as much as a $1000!
$1000 is a nice payday for ANY blogger.

Does your blog participate in pay per posts / sponsored reviews? Have you gotten feedback from readers? Are they finding this helpful or a distraction? Are there pay per post networks that are working for you and would like to share them here?
Have you read a sponsored review? Even though you could sense the article was sponsored, did you find it useful anyway? Is pay per post really just another way for bloggers to “sell out?”
