In the footer of this blog I’ve added a disclosure generated by the Disclosure Policy Generator. I’ve been pretty open about this whole PayPerPost thing, but let’s face it. There will be times when I won’t mention it, and it’s good to have it out in the open that I do this.
The generator does a good job and is good even if you aren’t taking money for making blog posts. It covers that possibility. Will anyone use it aside from PayPerPost people? Who knows. But here’s the policy I generated:

Working with PayPerPost is certainly interesting. It’s finding that balance between accepting money for posts and posting my own opinions. There are a lot of opportunities listed there that are quite simply not for me. You won’t ever see them here. Even when someone’s paying me I want my own beliefs to be the biggest part of each and every post here.
