My mate Pete has himself a new job as Director of Software Development for PayPerPost.com.
I worry about Pete: he's living several thousand miles away and can't buy me beer anymore.
So I checked out the PayPerPost website at http://payperpost.com/ and they seem to be a very interesting company, just the sort of thing that will help Pete keep his mojo going.
It seems a very sensible way for people to do business, you sign up and get paid by companies who want to advertise on blogs by writing posts about the subject they ask of you.
As Pete says in his blog:
"...despite what some would have you think, blogs are not journalism. Blogs are personal, and PayPerPost's model is a very real financial enabler for a huge portion of the Blogosphere; the single-mom trying to raise a small family, the student trying to make ends meet, the video game junkie looking for a means to fund his ever growing game collection. In fact, if you're human and have a blog, PayPerPost probably has something you can write about for cold, hard cash."
So good luck Pete, and good luck PayPerPost. More power to you...
