Is PayPerPost trying to kill competitors, bloggers or suicide?

I thought it is April’s Fool when I received a mail from PayPerPost, signed by Ted Murphy that advertisers only need to pay USD1 for each post.

So, I never give much thought to it. I didn’t bother to sniff around as I am very busy lately. FYI, I am taking a course on Citizen Journalism and am learning Scriptwriting, Video Journalism, Citizen Journalism and Video Editing. Big bombastic words but all rather interesting to me, so far.

OK, so I thought Ted was joking in the email :

My hope is that we will find a balance that works financially for advertisers, bloggers and IZEA. With that in mind, we have made the following changes: – Minimum total cost per post reduced to $1.00 – Minimum word count reduced to 25 words with a link only option This is a limited time promotion that starts today and ends at the end of the month. Please realize that pricing will still effect that rate at which bloggers accept your offer.

BTW, I got the email because I was an advertiser on PayPerPost, as well as a blogger.

Back to this issue, I received another alert email from another paid post company I am working with. I won’t reveal the content though. Then I realized, “Hey, Ted is not joking after all!”

Oh well, I no longer write for PayPerPost and I have collected all the money due to me. So, I do not care if PayPerPost is throwing shillings on the road for beggars. You know what they say…You pay peanuts, you get monkeys. No wonder Google hates PayPerPost and smacked all of us bloggers to PR0.

I guess Ted has some brilliant ideas behind this. He probably wants to kill off the competitors out there. Some of us who got on the bandwagon of writing paid posts in 2006 still have other companies to fall back on. For the rest of you bloggers, enjoy your fifty farking filthy cents. It is an insult to us bloggers. Fifty cent per piece? But then fifty cents is a lot of rupee, isn’t it? Advertisers, outsourcing, eh? You sure you won’t get your companies killed by Google?

    Nowadays, with the growing amount of data that one stores on the computer, the importance of backing up your information is indeed paramount. Seems like it’s time for me to do some backing up too!

    I’m also a PPP publisher before but decided to quit after I earned $300 from them. One day I realize that i’d rather write it in my blog and put adsense, chitika, kontera or infolinks.. Think of it as investment – that post may earn $1.00 per day as long as the blog is live unlike the paid post where you will only get paid one time of $1.00 for the same time/effort you exerted..

    Hi…I am not a PPP publisher. So I can’t give a comment. For me, register PPP is so difficult, but I am lucky because not really problem to my blog PR.

    I agree with zalds, why waste all that time for one measly buck, at best? Alsmot every post you write, no matter how crappy it might be, will earn at leats $1 over the lifetime of it, even if just from adsense, and while this sounds like a way to earn some immediate extra money, it won’t add up to anything substantial.

    Blog owner says : Hi Sally, Thanks for your comment but I have to delete it after reading. I have seen this coming and in the long run, we bloggers will benefit. On PayPerPost, they are asking for PR 1 and paying FIFTY CENTS! So, I will stick with the company you mentioned and ditched Izea and PPP.

    depend on you guys. If you want to use PPP, use it. If you don’t want, no need to use it. Hehe. Too many method to make money online, not only comes from PPP..

    sigh, i noticed PPP don’t have any new opps lately. How disappointing. I think I’ll give them up soon too.

    But other sites like SponsoredReviews, Smorty and BuyBlogReviews are too difficult to get opps.

    Any advice?
