You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too many pageloads

Just wanted to pass on the link to this enormously interesting piece about bloggers in New York magazine (It's not from "New York Metro," that's just the way part of their online operation is branded - sorry, I know that's really pedantic, but it's confusing when NY Metro is cited as a news source by clueless bloggers. Who's a journalism geek?) Anyway, people who are interested in the social dynamics of blogging will want to read this. Blogs to Riches: The Haves and Have-Nots of the Blogging Boom.

excellent article! many thanks for the recommendation

it's bracing news, though i suspect there might be some counter-arguments to encourage those of us labouring away on a list much further down the alphabet

An interesting article. There are clear parallels with the greasy pole of conventional media/business.

The best blogs, in my view, are like the best art and best services/industries - when they come from genuine motives, enthusiasms and interests rather than motivated soley by baser drives of power, fame, riches etc..

I have just linked to an interesting blog about Factory Records that Manc Bloggers might be interested in..

PS - apologs for not attending the MB meet. I am glad it went well...

He's no doubt an inspiration to many of the 'hirsute' persuasion...
