Dream a Little Dream of Me.

In Which I am Offered Cash

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.

    I think you’re doing a good thing here.

  2. JanieBelle says:

    Thank you, Rystefn. I think so, too.

  3. Diana says:

    Go for it. You never know if it’ll lead you to more offers of similar nature.

  4. JanieBelle says:

    Well, I don’t know if I’d actively look for them, but if the money’s going to a good cause, I wouldn’t turn it down unless it got too frequent.

    Y’know?

  5. Stephanie Z says:

    What Rystefn said.

  6. Mike says:

    JanieBelle, you have all the right moves. Trust your desires and make an intuitive decision.

  7. Can I suggest a cause?

    I think the AFLDF* deserves all the donations it can get. I’m sure Elizabeth at SitPS would agree.

    After all, think of all those poor girls in Alabama who are unable to openly purchase sexual aids?

    (*Alabama’s First Lady’s Dildo Fund.)

  8. JanieBelle says:

    Thanks guys.

    Sorry, I’m suddenly not feeling very chatty.

  9. JanieBelle says:

    uh, not cuz o’ youse guys, just to be clear.

  10. JanieBelle says:

    Don’t mind me, kids. I just got my feelings hurt a little.

    Please carry on.

  11. JanieBelle says:

    I have requested a $25 donation to Americans United for Separation of Church and State in exchange for my review.

  12. Good choice. 7th Day Adventist organization, you knew that, right?

  13. JanieBelle says:

    nuh uh. Where’d you hear that?

  14. ladypandorah says:

    This sounds like a good idea – money to a great cause for honest, unbiased thoughts on a website. Go for it.

  15. JanieBelle says:

    Thank you LadyP. I’m liking the idea a lot myself.

    Stay tuned…

  16. It looks like you are correct (of course, why should I doubt?) I have had several SDA friends recommend the organization and I was pretty sure they told me SDA folks founded it.

    Upon investigation it appears that while the SDA are certainly involved in the organization, I couldn’t find anything about it being started by SDAs.

    It was started as “Protestants United for the Separation of Church and State”, so it started as a religious organization.

  17. JanieBelle says:

    Thanks Kevin, I didn’t know that.

    I’m perfectly happy to stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone, including SDAs, who fight to keep the church out of the state.

    So in that sense, it doesn’t really matter to me.

    Neat bit of history, though.

    That cat photo cracks me up.

  19. JanieBelle says:

    The cat is Teh Sexay.

    pr0n0 kat sez, “look at teh puzzy!”

  20. JanieBelle says:

    The deal is struck.

    In a backwards-negotiation kind of thing, the website owner has upped my request from $25 to $40 for the review, donation to be made to Americans United in my honor, and another $50 if I link to his site from the homepage.

    I’ll have to consider the last bit for a while, as I’m unsure as to whether that would get me in (yet more) trouble with WP.

    Review forthcoming.

  21. […] the website owner I mentioned previously sent me this screenshot, as requested, verifying his donation to Americans United for Separation of […]
