Blogging for a Living
Nice article in today's Wall Street Journal about blogging. It quotes MediaBistro's report that 452,000 people are getting their primary income from writing blogs. Of course, that leaves 1.7 million more of us who are getting mere pocket change from it, and more than 18 million others who are doing it for free. Nonetheless, it's inspiring to me to see it emerging as a legitimate occupation. I concur with the assessment that bloggers are becoming "the fifth estate."
