In a recent post on the Fraud Files blog, Tracy has this to say, “I’m a paid blogger for AOL, posting on WalletPop, BloggingStocks and Luxist. We get paid per post, but our content is not controlled by anyone.”
Paid per post, eh? That sounds like a sweet gig. Especially when you don’t even have to think of things to blog about.
Come up with new ideas?? No way! There are plenty of creative people out there writing articles. How about this article that Tracy “wrote” on Wallet Pop:
I thought it looked familiar. It was. I read the original article on MSN. It was on the front page yesterday or the day before. Tracy’s even nice enough to link to it.
So this is the deal. Tracy is basically combing MSN looking for stories so she can write a 100 – 200 word summary, and BAM! It’s all about the Benjamins! Well probably not the Benjamins. Probably the Jacksons. Maybe the Washingtons.
I emailed Wallet Pop a few weeks ago and asked how someone could get a gig like that. He wrote back and told me to send him a writing sample or a resume. Hmmm…..
