    Kudos on your new dogs, Vinny.
    My Aunt has 5 dogs :-)

    Thanks for letting us know about this new development.
    I read this: http://performancing.com/node/4833 and my first reaction was “Gee, that sounds great — but where’s the nitty gritty?”

    The Techcrunch article gives a good summary: the advertisement algorithm is done via javascript (similar to Adsense?) and “payment occurs via PayPal” — this is where I get off the subway train :-)
    I wouldn’t touch PayPal with a 10 foot pole but if other people like PayPal, good for them — if future complications develop in the future with PayPal, don’t come back crying to me because I gave a fair warning.
    I cite Kohlbach, ‘Making Sense of Electronic Money’, 2004 (1) The Journal of Information, Law and Technology (JILT). [http://elj.warwick.ac.uk/jilt/04-1/kohlbach.html]. New citation as at 15/07/04: [http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/law/elj/jilt/2004_1/kohlbach/] as an example of why I am cautious in terms of vague regulations creating future problems as well as implications of PayPal’s involvement with money laundering as investigated by the U.S. Department of State: http://www.state.gov/p/inl/rls/nrcrpt/2003/vol2/html/29910.htm
    Also check out the excellent article from the University of Edinburgh, PayPal and eBay: The legal implications of the C2C electronic commerce model

    As you can see, if payment is via PayPal, I say “no dice.” Techcrunch said, “The lowest priced ad spaces are all $1 per month” — no thanks because I can make more money by picking out an affiliate ad that I like and pasting that with text links into one of my Blogger blogs. I am thinking about creating a WordPress blog but have not done so yet.

    Please note: I place affiliate ads into blogs that I host on paid hosting.
    I do not place affiliate ads onto blogspot hosting or any other hosting that is not “mine” (i.e. paid hosting).

    I have not achieved the success of Boing Boing yet, but I actually have made affiliate sales with my regular blogs.

    Hats off to those who try the new blog partners network; I look forward to reading comments about this new way of earning income by blogging.
    I understand that some people love PayPal and that’s okay with me if someone else is a fan as long as my money isn’t involved ;) — at least I cited valid reasons above for not trusting PayPal.
