Blogging for Dollars

Today is legitimate paying job day on the blog and I'll use this opportunity to say I'm not crazy about commission based writing gigs. However, after attending a seminar on blogging this past weekend, I'm inclined to think this set up in the world of blogging is more the norm than the exception - if you're paid at all. What I like about this ad is that they don't seem to have anything to hide. They list all their contact information. I checked out the website and it doesn't seem too bad - if you're already an expert and blogging for free anyway:
