Blogs to Riches

Good article over at New York Magazine about blogging. Takes a look at what it takes to turn blogging into a full time job. I think that blogging, newspapers and magazines will more or less morph into each other in the next 5-10 years.

“We could make a living at this. I mean, we’ve got the circulation of a good-size magazine—better than a good-size magazine. And our overhead is much smaller.” Or as Shirky puts it, “The Boing Boing thing is, they have more readers than Wired and yet they have a part-time staff of five. That’s the new math.”
The one thing they don't talk about is how much time people are spending reading blogs vs. newspapers, magazines and books.
