After being rejected by PayPerPost a couple months back, I have finally been accepted. The problem before was that ChrisBlogging was not yet old enough to qualify under PayPerPost standards.
So what now? I am contemplating on how much I want to use PayPerPost related posts on this blog. There are two sides of this story from where I am sitting.
On the positive side, PayPerPost gives the opportunity to make some extra money. In fact, my PayPerPost dashboard shows the top earners so far for September. The top earner has made $990.17 through the first 14 days of September. The tenth highest earner has pulled in $530.50. Of course, these are the top bloggers who put a lot of time into the PayPerPost opportunities. But with that being said, it does show what type of potential exists.
The downside of making sponsored posts is that they will take up space on my blog. And the question is: will this bother readers? Since I plan on at least giving PayPerPost a try, I have come up with an idea on how to combat this. As you probably know, I post at least once a day. And this one non-sponsored post is not going to be effected by my PayPerPost opportunities. In other words, I will always write at least one post per day that has nothing to do with what PayPerPost is offering.
It will be interesting to see what PayPerPost does to my traffic stats as well as how much money I can earn. For me, a few hundred dollars a month without losing traffic would be worth my time. Iâ€™ll keep you guys and gals posted!
