Pay Me to Blog

Pete Prodoehl has an interesting venture called PayMeToBlog. As a starter/demo project did a video for AmigoFish that is awesome! It’s funny and clever and highly useful. Yes, that really is a photo of me in the Mexican wrestler mask towards the end. Check out the video and look over the project. It’s an idea that has potential in that Million Dollar homepage sort of way.

The only problem I see is that I think his prices are too low. Me personally, although $25 for a video is a good price (and the AmigoFish one is worth many times that) I worry that the economical price will cause people to value it less and thus not participate. In other words, I think he’d sell more at a higher price.

In my post at the AmigoFish blog, I originally was prick enough to misspell Pete’s name. That’s a poor reward for someone doing something so nice. I hereby apologize for my churlishness and carelessness. I eat the (Wisconsin) cheese.

Later: Doggone it, I meant to publish this before leaving for work and I arrive home to find the draft sitting here. It’s obviously going to take a while to get back in the swing of combining an ordinary working life with the dorky nerdtopia of the blogosphere.

Update: Pete has emailed me to make it clear that he did not do this job gratis. He did get paid for it, I just wasn’t the one who paid. So, thank you mystery benefactor! I thank you and the AmigoFish project thanks you.
