>This article in the NYT about successful Mommy Bloggers (h/t to John Carter Wood at Obscene Desserts) is fairly astounding. $30,000-50,000 per month??! For baring your soul, spilling gossip, letting the skeletons out of the family closet every day, to millions of readers? Well. Of course, the main achiever in the article had to make her blog into her business, since her previous employer fired her for her online musings, and even if it led her to fame and fortune, I sure as hell am not ready to go there.
But, on the other hand, should I lose my job after the regime change next year, maybe I’ll be more in a position to fling dirt around, or expose my aching, unemployed soul to the masses. Probably not, I don’t think it’s in my nature to do that publicly. (But still, man, for that kind of money…!)
Possible disclaimer: every so often I do get an invitation to join some organization or conglomerate of blogs, and I never do. Probably I’m missing out on some grand future, but I don’t think so.
