I can’t let Alan Levine have all the fun with his curt responses to folks seeking paid advertising on his blog. I get similar emails regularly, and the one I got today offered me $30 for each sponsored spot, with as many as 5 all told. $150 dollarinis.

I will leave my response here for posterity and link to it for all future inquiries. These are my terms for sponsorship on bavatuesdays, and they are non-negotiable (except, of course, by me):
I take no less than $100K a spot, and it has to be in unmarked bills sent to an agreed upon Nigerian address.
Will send more details once you commit by sending your bank details along with a scanned copy of your license and SS card.
Looking forward to doing business together.
I think its only fair given the time and energy I have put into this blog, in fact it is quite cheap. And I am more than ready to make this deal with any interested parties. And I promise, this is not a scam 🙂
