Is it ok as a blogger to accept money to make you post/feature a song/video? Last week I received a mail offering me money if I posted a video, but so far I’ve been very hesitant and haven’t replied. I honestly believe that accepting this kind of offer must be the quickest way to loose any credibility I might have, though there’s obviously nothing wrong about money. Perhaps it could be turned into a somewhat more acceptable situation if I wrote that it’s a “sponsored” post and that the song/video doesn’t reflect my taste? And perhaps it could not? And how difference is this really from all the free CD's you receive and expected to review/feature? But quite interesting if this will be the future of MP3 blogging?
So what I’ve decided to do is NOT replying to the mail, and instead I'm simply posting the song and video without getting one cent for my efforts. Check it out if you like – it’s a rather repetitive techno/electronic track by UK DJ duo (?) OrtzRoka called Planets. Not really my cup of tea, but then again; I’ve certainly listened to stuff a whole lot worse than this!
