How not to make money from blogging

A writer's greatest obligation is to her readers. Think twice before you accept this offer from AiYo:

AiYo AdFavorites is for web publishers. With AiYo AdFavorites you can generate revenue by recommending products on your website or blog. With AdFavorites you can deliver very high quality content to your readers which are your recommendations and are NOT impersonal ads.

It is one thing to run ads, or have an affinity marketing link to a site such as Amazon, but I don't think it is right to recommend specific products to readers unless you make it clear you are being paid for your recommendations.
