Too Rich For My Blood

In checking my Blogads placements in the coming weeks, as the Christmas season draws ever closer, I looked, as ever to get the best bang for my buck.

And though I consider myself a traditionalist person, my blog is anything but a political blog.

I am the ecleti-blogger, par arrogance.

So I have been searching now for a few left-of-centre sites where I may place my Sundries advert. If those people are fair-minded, they'll accept it. If not, well, pfui on them.

But such was my utter horror when I saw the left-of-centre Blogad prices -- good Lord.

Talk about believing in Capitalism.

I saw one site, Blue Oregon, which was listed for U$9999 PER WEEK!

For that amount, I want mink underwear with every hit -- which would completely upset their sensibilities, making it a double coup for me.

But that's when I noticed they in fact, were listed as part of the "Liberal Blog Advertising Network".

Check them out:

  • Even though I don't know much about blogads I did enjoy your comments regarding these liberal blogs.

    My favorite line from today was:

    Over my cold dead lifeless, yet still rather adorable body, would I advertise with this wanker

  • This is hilarious. The best string of one-liners since Henny Youngman, maybe even passing him.
    Listen, I don't see why you have to pay anything and while were at it, businesses should pay top dollar to get on this site where not only great commenter's hang out but they have you, the most formidable and witty blogger of our time.
    These were really funny, the price was not.

    Until a troll gives you another tenner to say the opposite!

    Meanie.

    P.S.: Actually, word-of-mouth is always the best advertiser.

    And with my big mouth, I have gotten a lot of traffic. :)

    Cheers,

    Blogads is a networking device unto itself. I really enjoy it, much more than if I were at OSM/Pajamas Media, I think.
