I always promise to tell you when I put sponsored posts on the blog. But often, part of the conditions of getting paid for putting a sponsored post on the blog is that you can’t tell people that it’s a sponsored post.
Of course, I won’t let this apply to stuff I’m asked to review: full disclosure for those, right there and then – always.
But sometimes there are posts where all the contributor wants to see is a link to their product or website in an otherwise uninspiring blurb, which you are sent and asked to publish for a phat phee.
There are going to be a few of those coming up over the next couple of weeks, so if you think that something looks a bit weird or out of place, don’t panic: it’s probably just one of those posts. Check down below the blurb, next to the date – I will be tagging them as:
‘black label fund‘
because you must rest assured that if it’s made it onto 6000 miles… front page, I am at least getting some beer money from it.
Science doesn’t pay well. But no science doesn’t pay at all.
Thanks for understanding.
