Moral straightjacket

So Mom has been contemplating putting ads on my blog for a few months. She really didn't want to do it because she does this because she LOVES blogging and she LOVES all you dogs, cats, birds and hamsters. However, she spends a lot of time blogging and reading blogs and commenting and thought that it might be nice to make a little bit of money from it. I say go for it because More Money = More Treats? So we have a few small ads on the side, I am NOT asking that you click them, I just wanted to let you know that Mom is still unsure about this and hopes you guys don't feel offended.

I guess this now makes this blog my job, since I have an income. I also think this should get me some more control in the household, what do you guys think?


Well Mom just wanted to say her piece and hopes you dogs aren't offended. What do you think my first demands as a contributing member of the household should be?!

No offense, Joey!

We think some special Joe Time with the parents (and no Tanner) would be in order every week, if not everyday! Start with that & build from there.

Goob love,

Hey Joe.. Don't be offended. A pup has gotta put treats on the table. We all have jobs here. This will give you leverage! Just don't give any $$ to Tanner to buy dog beer...

Our Mom had Adsense on our blog but had to remove it when they started showing offensive ads. Hope your Mom has better luck!

$$$ Wow! Maybe you can help with the doggie bills if they let you get what you want to eat. First thing I'd do is get out of the kibble section.

ps if you check on my blog Jeannie has an Ad entitled "Fleas Control"....she got paid a small sum for putting it on there. As long as I get some nice treats, I don't mind! So no worries1

I clicked. I was like CHA-CHING! If I click enough times I'm hoping to buy you a trip to Minnie-soda for some good times at the dog park! After I'm done being a crabby pants, of course.

Of course we're not offended!! Now that you're a contributing member of the family...I think you should make at least 50% of the rules!! It would only be fair.

Hey Joe, How much are you contributing? I'm curious how much those ads pay. I'm worried my mom is going to make me pay for my own surgery the next time I blow my knee out. Maybe I should consider this, and if I don't blow my knee I can blow the cash on a paaaawty.

Joey...I get my salary at the store in pay pal money, Then I can use it it buy pressies. However, I think I do not make minimum wage, so it takes a long time to save up.

I'm supposed to be getting money from my job too, but I haven't seen any of it yet. Make sure your mom doesn't hide it, like mine apparently does.... Evil woman.

I have ads on my blog too. Isn't it great to know that you are able to earn some money out of doing things that we like to do.

First - ask for 5 meals a day.
Second - ask for Tanner to be in his little house every day except Tanner Tuesday.. (hehe... kidding.. I don't really mean it)

I hope you make enough money to hire your uncles to bring you cheese and meatballs like the gala event at the store. maybe you could buy Tanner some more time in his house.

Hey, Joe, we're not offended! We had those ads on our blog until they put an ad for the puppy millers. Then we just took them right off and now the Servant is in a GINORMOUS SNIT. She just couldn't figure out how to block ALL of the online puppy mill creeps. She blocked the electro shocker collars, and the train your dog in 10 minutes for only $49.99, but she couldn't block the puppy mill guys, so she gave up.

You are WAY smarter than her, so we know you'll figure it out.
Good luck spending all of your moo-lah!

Hey Joe, now you're a wage earner, I think you need to put your paw down and put in a few extra demands. More toys, more treats, more of whatever takes your fancy! J x

Hi Joe,
Nope, I am not offended either! Definitely seems like a cool idea - getting paid for doing something fun? Yay! That is what all jobs should be like. I wish mom would pay me to play with my toys or something. Hey! Maybe you could make a rule about that now that you are a contributing member of your household. Get paid in treats for playing or something...
Love Clover xo

Joey, I would pay money to read your blog every day, so seeing ads isn't nothin'! I say ad-it-up if it means more Joey and Doofus Face Adventures!

Good luck, Joey! I think it's a great idea, and you're cut out to be a movie-star.

Blogger Lady Kaos said...

I'm totally not offended. I may have to try that. Since you now have an income you should be able to make some important decissions in the hose like who sleeps where and what is served for a meal and when it is served. Like you shaid though. More money = more treats!
Good luck with your new job!

So long as all the money goes into a pool for buying snackables and long-term therapy for the Doofus I'm totally fine with it. A penny for your thoughts! Ha! (My ma ape says I sound like an old man.)
