Blog payola

At work we get the Wall Street Journal. Today's front page has an article on blogging payola, or as I like to call it, payloga. TV networks are buying off bloggers to create "buzz" for their programs, threatening to undermine the honest little democracy we've created in the blog-o-sphere, and we want in.

You see, it has always been part of our mission statement to sell out. Or at least it would be if we ever sat down and wrote a mission statement.

So we ask you, the creatively bankrupt corporate advertising world, to consider for your payloga needs. Our daily readership is something like eight, maybe even nine people. We offer a sliding scale based on the quality of your product. I've already demonstrated that I will pimp Andy Richter vehicles for a ham sandwich. Something with Dane Cook... that'll cost you more. Survivor will be very expensive unless you take my advice and make Survivor: Andes or Survivor: Donner Pass with cannibalism. And if the show's best selling point is "This actor was great in Seinfeld," just send us a blank check.

They are going to China for the next edition of Survivor.

The tagline should be 1.6 billion vs. 20. Who will survive?

i just started doing internet research for a payloga company.

My soul is also for sell. Please contact me at - I will endorse anything for cash money.

Nick said...

wow. i wish i could make money blogging!

slappy. when you have time go to my post for today. i put an awesome video of Jiggs up!

Carl: Exactly. This is the ratings boost they need.

Earl: If Red China still has the same military strategy as they did in Korea, then the castaways will need 1.7 billion bullets.

Kendra: Sweet. When you get promoted to Queen you can merge your company with the Media Empire.

Nick: You still have a soul to sell? I traded mine for cotton candy at the county fair. I should've held out for a ride on the Tilt a Whirl.

Amera: The key to making money is to discard any shreds of self respect and artistic integrity. The video does look like a young Jiggs.

It depends. Are you going to spend it on filthy whores?
