I do not write a blog because of competition, I write because I like to write and have things to say. When I have nothing to say, I do not write. I do not have a monetized blog, I have no desire to.
Yes monetized blogs are a turn off to me because you never know if you are getting a real opinion or a compensated one. And a lot of bloggers do NOT make that clear.
I saw the above sponsored content (as in they paid for it to go into new feeds) on Facebook. Out of curiosity I clicked. It led to this thing on LinkedIn.
This woman goes on to sell you on the business that she is actually pimping – you see it is not your well being a blogger she cares about, in my opinion it is the potential money she can make if you sign up for her deep interest network.
It’s like paying for a platform that already exists on free blogging platforms meets another kind of social media platform.
How many of those do we need? And why should we pay for it? Sorry, I think I will stick to being an individual, not a blogging Stepford Wife with another monthly bill to pay. I do not want fake potentially paid for “influencers.” I want people who want to read what I write, like one of my photos or recipes…. organically. Different strokes for different folks.
Sorry I just think this whole entire concept is Mighty Fake.
