Making Money? Off of blogs?

One of the great things about having your email associated to your blog is that people you have never heard from send you emails.

Here is one I received recently:

I'm the webmaster of [website removed]
I wanted to know if by any chance you would be interested in doing an unbiased review of our site [website removed] on your blog http://tmtomh.blogspot.com/

If you agree you can choose between receiving a product sample or receiving a payment.

If you choose the product sample instead of the payment the sample is yours to keep and you don’t need to send it back.

The product sample that you can get is %product and you can see it there: %product_url

Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you

Ok, seriously, have you read my blog? My last two posts were about commercializing suicidal tendencies and doing everything I can to make dogs misbehave. And the one before that featured a drunk, pill-popping baby.

Do you think the intelligent, wealthy, and smokin' hott (with no 'g' and two 't's) people who read such high-brow material are just clamoring on my unbiased thoughts and feelings about your website? Probably not.

And while I'm at it, after reviewing my blog, what made you think I use it to do reviews of other websites? And how exactly does one review a website, let alone do an unbiased review? (I found it very clickable, so I give it four stars.)

And what the heck is a %product?

Oh, you would influence me. Fur sure.

You are a fool to turn down money... any money! Unless the prodcut for sale had something to do with killing bunnies.

NoR, I am adding to my resume, "Contributed to a woman being under the influence."

Cyber D - wouldn't you know it, %product turned out to be a case of Bunny Spray.

Cyber D said...

Well you did the righ thing. Killing bunnies is just wrong. Killing kittens on the other hand. Well that's just good clean fun.

I totally love how you said that!
