Let’s face it some bloggers are more successful than others. For some reason some bloggers can become highly successful even when the quality of their writing isn’t great. How is this possible?

That meeting was interesting because it occurred at my favorite sushi restaurant on the West side (recognized the decor) and it raised some important issues questions that advertisers have about Pay Per Post.
