blog ethics

I got the idea from here, but this topic has been sailing like a frisbee around blogdom for a week or so now. Should a blogger take money from a sponsor without disclosing that he or she is getting paid?

HELL NO, I say!!! Not unless I'M getting some of that money. I have lofty standards and I WILL NOT BE BOUGHT... at least not cheaply. I will not stoop to making money off this blog because I am not broke yet. But I may be up for bids in a few months, even though it goes against my nature.

I have integrity. If you wanna buy THAT, it's gonna cost you.


If you work for Ron Popiel no, if you are offering an endorsement of a candidate or particular policy, yes. I am, I might add for sale and I have no standards whatsoever.

I'll undercut Billy by 10%...

And not only do I not have standards, my scruples are pretty low as well...
