So, the much awaited pay-to-blog site LoudLaunch.com has launched, and I'm sure all the so-called "blogging purists" will be up in arms again over sites like LoudLaunch.com who actually dare to pay bloggers (like me) for their writing efforts in helping out advertisers with their PR campaigns or latest news -- which companies can get started creating with as little as 50 bucks to LoudLaunch. But a higher budget means more buzz.
It's funny, but I find many of LoudLaunch.com critics to be hypocrites in that they are either news reporters feeding their families off of salaries that are paid by the same advertisers who appear next to their bylines that they try hard not to offend, lest the removal those ad dollars leave them jobless...
Or, they are bloggers whose blog posts dissing LoudLaunch.com appear right next to text-link ads affiliated with other pay-to-blog sites like ReviewMe.com that pay those said bloggers indirectly in the first place.
Take down all your ads and I'll stop getting paid to blog, commented one person to a popular blogger who takes in tons of ad revenue but likened paid-blogging sites like LoudLaunch.com to a virus.
But none of LoudLaunch.com's critics can stop this blogging train now -- the smart idea of hooking up advertisers seeking buzz with bloggers willing to provide that buzz -- whether it be paid or the kind they like most: the non-paid criticism of LoudLaunch.com that only equates to free publicity.
I see where the critics can have a problem. I don't want to publicize some product or service that's going to harm people. But mostly I find paid blogging to be fun. It's a chance to level the playing field and get in on the creative advertising writing that many a minority has been locked out of in those "lily white" ad agencies that my white friend told me doesn't even look at hiring blacks to write ad copy for them.
