Blog posts for a price
I sympathize with Ambivablogger's plaint about feeding her site:
It all becomes equally semi-shallow, as I suppose it would for a newspaper reporter churning out lots of copy on deadline. You don't gather force. There isn't a rhythm to it, with rest. The blog is a succubus. Its demand feels relentless, like if you don't keep performing and entertaining, the crowd will quickly wander off. There are so many other good acts to watch.Luckily, Old Horsetail Snake has a solution:
|Yesterday I allowed as how I was gonna bail out Internet b**ggers who got writer's cramp from goin' brain dead. Part of my plot to Make My Pile is to secretly substitute for these people with some topical topics. For a price.|
Some Internet writers find they got nothin' interesting to say so they rely on formula pap, like "Uninteresting Things in My Junk Drawer," or "What We Had at Burger King." Instead of that, they can hire Ol' Hoss, the Master Internet Double. They give me their user name and password and I will tap into their site and post some spellbinding stuff in their name. Nobody will be the wiser, except me and the poor sap who is payin' me.
Here are the categories in which I am offering services:
The line forms to the left.
Along the same lines, Museum of Hoaxes pointed to the new Blogoriented.com. Extracts:
What Jeff and I are doing is simple but as far as I know we are the first. We are outsourcing blogs to China.
Our general business model is a two tiered effort to hire Chinese citizens to write blogs en masse for us at a valued wage. The first tier is to create original blogs. These blogs will pop up in various areas of the net and appear to the unknowing reader to be written by your standard American. Our short term goal for these original blogs is to generate a steady stream of revenue...
The second tier of our plan is a blog vacation service where our employees fill in for established bloggers who need to take a break from regular posting. As all bloggers know, an unupdated blog is quickly forgotten. For a nominal fee we can provide seamless integration of filler...
I have been working hard trying to help Jeff make our product more believable. Our initial results have been a little bit below what we expected ... Our design process centers around 3 general groups:
I can tell you that the top 5 blogs we are currently developing are:
- Teenage girls
- Normal Bloggers (yuppies, moms, average college students)
- Super Bloggers (bipolars, cynics, liberals, outcasts, super-hip)
While these are not yet ready for public consumption you would be amazed how good this stuff is. Our most talented guy keeps writing about how the weatherman got his forecast wrong and is sad.
- A blog written from the perspective of a stray cat in NYC.
- A blog written from a 14 year old depressed Iowa girl.
- A blog about life as a math professor in a southern community college.
- A blog about being a plus sized model in Kentucky.
- A blog about being a weatherman in California.
