There’s quite a few companies who want to give you money for blogging, Facebook status updating and Twittering.  All you’ve got to do is sell your soul allow them to put an ad on your wall/Twitter every now and then.

“It is perhaps the last frontier in advertising — getting regular people to send a sentence or two of text, on behalf of paying advertisers, to their friends and admirers. The idea, according to the entrepreneurs who are developing such services for Twitter and other Web networks, is that people trust recommendations from those they know and respect, while they increasingly ignore nearly ever other kind of ad message in print, on television and online.”
