Unethical? Or pay Music Bloggers their Fair Share?

RockmusicRaider - Woman with money - Unethical, or pay music bloggers their fair share.

A lot of howling and bitching by self-proclaimed moralists lately echoed off the walls of the RockmusicRaider office suite. Deep questions galore about ethics, playing to theories that you should not take money for the work you do. That by doing so, your pure creative spirit as a blogger will grow the infamous mold of corruption. Specifically, in the music industry, this view lately became a problem.
