Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon! It’s Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. A lot of people have been asking me to promote their products or their businesses or their new projects. I've had a few inquiries I had one from the developer the other that was wondering how they can get on my blog and how can I blog about them and what they can do. Some people are mentioning that they will give me gifts and some people said they will pay and some people said they have incentives. So their fantastic opportunities for me but I don't want to take any money because I think Web 2.0 is all about the transparency. Well what I like with the Web 2.0 is that if this product is not that great. Then I will tell everybody it's not that great. If it's a piece of crap, I'll say its a piece of crap. If I love it I'll tell everybody I love it but the thing is I don't want to get paid for anything because I don't want to make this blogs a commercial. And they are not definitely a commercial they are message, they are blog that's all they are. I know there are a lot of great bloggers out there. For example Miss604, you have to pay her to come and do a live blog about your different function that you have and going on. And that is fantastic. If that is your business if you are in a blogging business but I'm in a real estate business. But do you think that Miss604 has an event she's doing a live blogging and she's saying wow the turn out was terrible this really stunk. i would never deal with this company because they are awful. Of course not they just hire them and Miss604 blog for the Vancouver Canucks. Does she really really cut into people and say how can they justify the prices that they are charging for this type of crap product. Probably not and I think that's the transparency that people really want and if you start charging for your services then you lose your transparency and you become a commercial. My name is Ian Watt. you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much and have a great day!
