Today’s NY Times had an interesting article on blog advertising in the business section. A link is on the Blogroll under “Blog Ads.” Some blogs are getting into trouble for basically being advertising shills for a specific product, some of which border on health fraud. The F.T.C. would like to see disclosure of gifts or money for product placement or articles on a blog. Sure, you betcha, here’s full disclosure by the Blog: No one has ever given me a nickel to post an article or link on the Blog. No one has ever given me anything, not even a souvenir coffee mug, for a post or link on the Blog. Carl’s Blog on FDA Stuff is definitely not a money making proposition.
