I don’t normally rant, but tweets like this really irritate me. Sponsored blog posts are nothing new. Even the biggest companies give out cash and product in exchange for content on big-name sites. It works well, but bloggers are all but stoned to death for the practice. The tweet I linked to clearly states the content isn’t a paid post, but why should they have to say anything at all? It shouldn’t make a difference whether the writer has been paid or not. Honesty is the only thing that should matter.
