Advertisers and publishers - a necessary relationship

So, it looks like most of us, developed a new condition while browsing the net. It's called banner blindness - an ability to turn a blind eye to irrelevant  banners that we see all over the internet. This is why the best advertisers are looking for new ways to reach customers, rather that relying desperately on banners and ad placement. This is why, clever advertisers are now ready to reach out to bloggers, big or small, experts or beginners and  ask for help and not only pay on performance (when you generate a sale or a lead) but also periodically offering blog bonuses that vary between $5 and $10. These advertisers are the best ones to start affiliate marketing with because, while waiting for your traffic to increase and your blog to become popular, you can at least pay for the ISP or hosting bill with these blog post bonuses. I am sure there are hundreds of advertisers that pay bloggers to blog, but below are my favorites, not only because they offer generous blog post bonuses, and commissions on sales and leads, but also because the products and services that they are offering are the sort of stuff that I like to use
