Yes. I have been offered cash. Dinero. Moolah. Hard currency in (presumably) American Greenbacks. (For whatever they’re worth these days…)
Yes, I believe I will accept the offer. It’s mostly about negotiating the price at this point. “For what,” you ask tentatively? For (almost) exactly what you think, and possibly dread… Sex. Well, not sex, exactly. For my opinion on sex.
This morning I received in my inbox an Email, hand written typed and not spam generated, an offer of money to place an advertisement on this blog. Specifically, a porn ad. No, I will not be adding that ad, so don’t panic. I don’t like paid advertisements of any kind on personal blogs (and I’m pretty sure WordPress.com doesn’t allow them anyway, but that’s really a moot point to me).
Upon my declining of that kind offer however, an alternative suggestion was made. It is that suggestion which I believe I’ll be accepting.
(Negotiation details after the fold)
In exchange for my honest review of a porn site, posted on this blog, the owner has offered to make a cash donation to a cause of my choice. I think I am comfortable with that arrangement. The review will be thorough, and it will be honest. I’ve taken a peek at a few pages, and I’ve already seen some pluses and minuses. I will not be easy to please. More importantly, I will not compromise my integrity for money or profit. Not for anyone, not for any amount of money.
Although he also generously offered some link love, I doubt I offer what his membership would be looking for anyway, much like the Sugasmers. So that’s not really a major consideration for me. As I’ve said before, I’d rather have A few loyal readers who find what they’re looking for than thousands of disappointed “one-hit wonders” who never return.
My financial interest, or more accurately the financial interest of the cause I choose, will be prominently displayed at the beginning of the review and at the end of the review, in the interest of full disclosure.
