We Just Want to Wet Our Beak

We were kicking back yesterday with a Lipton Brisk® Raspberry-flavored Iced Tea, when a potential investor emailed us with an intriguing proposal:

From: Brandy Olson

Subject: Blog Question

Hello! I was wondering if you took paid guest posts on Burro Hall? Not a traditional "guest post" but one you'd be compensated for and have complete editorial control over.

I'm part of a business that does high-end brand placements worked into guest posts on a variety of subjects. Our posts don't advocate or review our clients, they are informational and/or newsy. We include a reference link to our clients amongst other topical links inside the content. We'd provide the article, written by a domain expert, and pay you a bit of money for you to review and post it upon your approval.

(If you don't take guest posts, we also have arrangements where we discuss your upcoming post and find one in which a link makes sense and pay you to include it.)

Is that something that you would be interested in and if so, how much would you want us to pay?


Needless to say, we almost spit our crisp, refreshingly tart beverage all over the keyboard! We can't wait to see the look on The Man's face when we tender our resignation in the morning.

At least you would not have to wait long for the money. I´m still waiting for the check from Libya.

Hey Burro, tu amigo de Twitter, you didn't put the BBC reporter (Katya Adler) documentary about Mexico. It's great, well done.
