Many bloggers are familiar with PPP (Pay Per Post), but have you heard of Smorty? If you haven't, take a look, sign up and starting blogging.
They do not base the acceptance of your blog solely on page rank as other paid blogging systems do; isn't that great? Smorty takes your blog as a whole, grades it and gives the blog it's own rank. I ran across this when searching for new ways to make some extra cash. I am new to Smorty so the jury is still out, but so far so good!
Now you too can get paid for blogging! I know it is nice to get paid for something I already do and since I can 'pick' my campaigns, I control how and when I blog for money.
