Business Tips From Anthony Weiner: How to Make $50,000 Blogging

June 10, 2011

in Song of the Week, While Perched upon my Soapbox

Yesterday as I was perusing the internet looking for a story idea for Sprocket Ink today, I came across interesting information regarding Anthony Weiner (shocker, huh?). Apparently a dating site is offering Weiner $50,000 to use the infamous crotch shot and have him serve as spokesman for their website.

As a blogger who tweets, posts on Facebook, stumbles, and writes regularly, it is a little frustrating to read a tweet garnered a potential 50K paycheck for Weiner. Yes, he is publicly humiliated and will possibly have to resign. And I am sure he will decline or ignore the offer. But one tweet for 50K. Why doesn’t it work like that in the blogging world?

Seriously? This is worth $50,000?

My blogging buddy David Kaa of The Manwife Chronicles never wears pants and posts images of himself in his underwear all the time. The last time I checked in with David, he had not been offered $50,000 to represent a company.

So this has led to a new business strategy for Naked Girl in a Dress. If you would like to watch it unfold, I recommend you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and StumbleUpon immediately.

There MIGHT be lewd photos released from these accounts this weekend. Of course I won’t say with complete certainty it is a photo of me though. Well, at least not for a week. Then I will hold a press conference to discuss the photos in question. Then the offers should start to roll in.

It worked for Weiner; maybe a few of us bloggers should try it.

As I kick off my new business strategy, Barenaked Ladies seems to be appropriate for Song of the Week. Here’s “Pollywog in a Bog.”

It might seem an odd choice, but Monkey chose it. Here’s what he said about it, ” It’s funny AND appropriate for kids to watch.” Of course I haven’t let him read this blog post and I don’t recommend you letting your kids read about Weiner’s crotch, but maybe skip ahead and let your kids watch the video. It is really cute.

Happy Friday!

You are marketing genius….totally on to something. I want to be your partner. Although I can’t say with certitude that it is my lovely lady bits included in any pictures that may or may not be tweeted on purpose and/or accident. I might have been hacked.

Your pics will be better than my pics. We can go in the lewd photo business together; of course!

So, I need to send inappropriate pics to people I meet online?

Wait. Don’t a lot of women already do that? Are they getting paid? I thought they just liked their boobs.

I think the SMART women are tweeting photos of themselves for money and then dumb ones are giving it away.

THAT is the infamous crotch shot? Bloggers can do so much better than that.
