Imagine, being out on a movie house date. Go pick a date. Me, if it’s not my hub then it has to be either Brad Pitt or Wentworth Miller. Oh, slap me, I'm dreaming. Lol.
But okay. You have your bucket of popcorn, some drink and you're snuggled in the warmth of someone you love. Life couldn't get much better than this, ey? You thought while waiting for the show to start.
But holy mackerel, when the show started, you found out that it's NOT the uninterrupted movie you were expecting. All because of the numerous advertisement in between!
You start to get up and look around you. Wait, wait, am I in a movie house or what? You demand. With the number of ads, it certainly looks like you're only watching a mini-series at home.
And you scowl. Disappointed? Let's be honest. The ads bothered you, ey?
And this may be akin to how you feel when you see paid post in blogs.
And no, I'm not pointing a finger at you because I USED to feel that way, too. Pardon me.
Maiylah tagged me to do this interesting meme, the reason why I decided to monetize my blog.

As of 11/23/07 16:12:38, conversion @ Metrobank is PhP 42.850 = $1. That's it. I'm not going to beat around the bush.
True, I have a regular job, decent job, in one of the leading telecoms in this country. The pay is good, although compared to the how much telco engineers get abroad, I'm just earning peanuts. Mmm... again, let's just take a look at the forex conversion because it explains a lot. :D
So although the pay is good (besides I live on a very low-maintenance lifestyle ;D), this doesn't say, I do not want to earn extra cash. Yes, why not? I could use some extra and I could do A LOT with it. :D Imagine getting PhP210 for, let's say, a 50 to 100-word post. That's fairly easy. But I'm a newbie to this thing and I'm still groping the ropes.
Back when I was still not doing paid post, I was a bit skeptical at "the rewards" for doing the work. Yes, I read it in lots of sites but I have no way of knowing if it's true. But when I hear it from friends, it's different. I could just be contented writing posts but it is encouraging to hear friends, like Maiylah;D who get much out of writing paid post.
So I made the big switch. And just the other day, I began thinking of writing paid post as a game, much like complete-the-sentence game - it definitely gives my gray matters some exercise. I like it, it's fun.
So I hope you'll bear with the paid post 'round here. Don't run away, please.
