I found this news at first in ProBlogger. Here is the AD of Washington Post:

"The Sponsored Blogroll is an index on the washingtonpost.com homepage that promotes bloggers who are participating in a partnership with the advertising team of WPNI. If you are a blogger or blog network looking to expand your readership and advertising, our Sponsored Blogroll program can be the boost you've been looking for.
Here's how it works:

A link to members' blogs will be featured in our Sponsored Blogroll index, giving your writing promotional space on the washingtonpost.com home page and giving you an introduction to an audience of 8 million readers monthly. At the same time, our hardworking sales reps will help connect your signature musings with the huge number of advertisers we deal with every day who are looking for the next big, slightly-outside-the-mainstream idea.

As a Sponsored Blogroll member, you'll maintain your independence. But you'll get additional site traffic, a little buzz and maybe some additional income."

Exciting times for bloggers, indeed. I hope you can benefit from this program, Razib. You definitely qualify, considering the fact that they are interested in blogs related to Technology, Business, Health, Automotive and Travel.

Thanks for the info. :)

I applied too under the - why not give it a try? - attitude I am cultivating.
