A post by Chris Brogan inspired me to put a widget on my blog here describing what blogola I’ve received lately, as a way of disclosing potential conflicts of interest. You’ll see it on the side, under the photos.
Blogola is a portmanteau of blog and payola, the practice of paying off DJs at radio stations by record companies to spin certain records. Blogola is stuff people have sent me for evaluation and, I would imagine, recommendation.
If you’d like to send me blogola, that’s fine, but be aware it will be fully disclosed and a positive review is not at all guaranteed. If your product or service sucks, you will know about it. Just ask Snapple.
I reserve the right to “re-gift” any blogola. If you’re not okay with that, please don’t send it. (no, I won’t re-gift opened food) I also keep whatever you send, so if you’re not okay with that, again, please don’t send it.
