What a difference a day makes

OK, I admit it, I was fishing for sympathy. I know, I'm pathetic really. But I was totally bowled over by the wonderful comments of Mr C and Tennyson. Mr C, I think you're right, maybe it's time I patched things up between Mum and I.

Before I got on the phone to Lincoln though, I checked my emails and was thrilled to see two amazing emails offering me cash for blogging!

The first was from someone called Arrica Lee who said:

I would like to advertise in your blog for USD25 for 3 months. It is just a text link. Please let me know what you think.
If you have any other blogs in these category:insurance,finance, travel and auto which are higher than PR1, please let me know too.
P/S: Do you have any blogs above PR3 for sale?

I was excited and intrigued to say the very least. However, it reminded me of the time that Wu Travel approached me with an offer that looked too good to be true. Thankfully, my good friend Mess pointed out that the Wu Travel are bunch of fraudulent scumbags (my words, not his) intent on robbing innocent bloggers of their hard earned cash.
I have yet to respond to Arrica anyway, because the second of the two emails I received looked even more amazing. It was an email from someone called David who works for something called Blog Distributor. Here's what he said:

Hey Blogger - My name is David,

I have been searching the Internet for the most well-written blogs and was impressed by yours. I wanted to invite you to become a paid blogger at Blog Distributor. (please understand that I do not send this invitation to every blogger I come across.)

Here is a link that describes how it all works in a little more detail:

Our system is set up so that bloggers can make more money with us than with any other blog-for-pay firm. In short, we are the middle man between you and the advertiser. We match the correct blogs with the correct advertisers, who pay us to do so. And then we pay you, the blogger on behalf of the advertiser. You only take the advertisements that you want and are comfortable with. In no way does this alter the owersship of your blog. You simply get paid to write postings on your blog that you choose to write. You do what you want, when you want.

To submit your blog, go to If you have any questions, do visit the FAQ's area of the site: If you have more than one blog, you are more than welcome to sign those up as well. If you have any other questions, please contact me at:

Thanks, David

Amazing stuff eh readers?? Guess I won't be giving up on the blog just yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe I'll write the personified onion story for the Secret Seed Society afterall.


  1. There needs to be more personified onions out there. Maybe even a lamentable carrot or two. I once knew a petrified cabbage but we had a falling out over a TV remote and it left home.

    Someone asked to advertise on my blog in exchange for a 'golfing shirt'. Which is odd since I'm not sure what I'd do with a golfing shirt. I don't even play myself, I can't be having my apparel golfing behind my back, you know? Literally behind my back.

    I'm glad you decided to keep blogging.

  2. i just got one of these too and I have to say that I don't get nearly enough web traffic for someone to want to advertise on my site.
