Ad-Free Blog Sells Out to Twix


After receiving an email from Sinuate Media, a company that represents a project for Twix, Andrew Krucoff, publisher of the ad-free blog Young Manhattanite, decided to sell out. He was contacted by Sinuate Media's Justin Chiang who asked Krucoff to post banners promoting a sweepstakes in return for a bunch of free candy bars and some MLB tickets. Apparently a lover of candy, Krucoff caved at agreed to post the banner. So much for the ad-free blog concept.

Hey, I'm all for selling out. I'm just disappointed he did it for so little. Free candy? I guess the MLB tickets may be worth is depending on how many he gets.

No such thing as a sell out. If the client and product are right and it can benefit readers, than go for it. But for Candy? Damn.
