It had to happen.
I'm not saying they did it, I'm saying the phenomenon is there. You can smell it. The difference between the old-timey bloggers and the new "bloggers"...spiffy new blogs set up to subtly promote products...the difference is there.
I went so far as to list my "credentials" for blogging on my Adult Acne Blog. I suppose I'm lucky that some of those credentials still exist...that I have an Internet trail that's still possible to follow.
Ultimately these "seeds" are going to turn Internet writing into a new animal. Either people wake up and smell the rats, or else they're doomed to sit passively in front of the laptop screen, and simply be sold things.
