Jobs 2.0: How do bloggers make money?
"Bloggers create 900,000 blog posts a day worldwide, and some of them are actually making money. Blogs with 100,000 or more unique visitors a month earn an average of $75,000 annually – though that figure is skewed by the small percentage of blogs that make more than $200,000 a year." [via Slate]
