Not Paid Per Post

I just saw a Digg post about a Cnet story which references a TechCrunch article which references a Business Week article about PayPerPost.com. According to the Business Week article,
Advertisers pay to post details about their "opportunity," specifying, among other things, how they want bloggers to write about, say, a new shoe, if they want photos to be included, and whether they'll pay only for positive mentions. Bloggers who abide by the rules get paid; heavily trafficked blogs may command premium rates.


I just want to be clear, I do NOT do anything like this. I post about Pearl Jam, Superman Returns, books I read and OpenBSD because they're things that interest me. I am, in no way, compensated for anything posted here. I do get a very small percentage from the icons at the bottom of my page and the occasional Amazon link, but I imagine that the only payback I get from those are my own click throughs.

Superman Returns was an example given in one of the articles. Since I posted about Superman Returns, I wanted to make it clear I do not participate in such practices. That is all.
