Pay Per Post - The Slave Trade?

Pay Per Post - The Slave Trade?Pay Per Post used to be a good way of supplementing you income if you had a blog, but all of a sudden it has let literally thousand of people down by substantially reducing the pay for ads. Will other similar sites do the same?

The minimum reward for a blog used to be $5, even this for some ads was not really worth putting 'pen to paper.' Now the majority of fees that are being offered are $0.50! This is one tenth of the previous pay. The slightly worrying thing is that some bloggers are still doing the ads for this insult of a fee - Why?

If you think that the advantage is with the advertisers for cheap promotion, think again. Most blogger who did this for the income, or even a living, will no longer entertain these advertisers who pay these minute fees. I myself certainly wouldn't take on a pay per post assignment for less that $5. The advertisers will certainly get less takers and those they do get who are working for peanuts will be monkey blogs with no clout.

It must be the recession that has prompted this and not as Pay Per Post said, "More opportunities for everyone!" If you blog for Pay Per Post, just don't go for anything less than $5, hopefully they will see sense and do a a U-turn.
