ABTW: Sponsored Posts?

Postby TemerityB » September 23rd 2016, 6:46pm

Looks like credibility now (if it ever did) means squat at A Blog To Watch. First, Adams posts a column about how Invicter Disney shit watches are selling. Now, they're publishing "sponsored posts" - which means a watch company can post what pretty much are free ads, right next to news articles.

I know blogs struggle financially, but this is a bullshit, blatant sellout. Wither ABTW.

REL has jumped the shark. And , I'm sure , added to his collection.

I was thinking the same thing.

I saw one of these a while back as a google search result and was pretty surprised to find it was an ad written as an article. Can't blame the guy for wanting to make a buck but it demeans the site. Commenters there don't seem to know or care...

It's all about the Benjamins, baby. I never really gave a shit what REL ever said, anyway--but he can still go and fuck himself.

And written by REL himself by the looks of it?

I agree with Conjurer, and with his favorite table leg, too.
