Wall Street Journal Podcast: Professional Blogging

This article was written by in Career and Work. 6 comments.

Today, the Wall Street Journal’s Tech News Briefing podcast includes an interview with me about the growth or demise of professional blogging. Here are the Wall Street Journal’s podcasts and the RSS feed to subscribe to the Tech News Briefing.

My interview starts at about 7:40. I share some of my experiences with blogging particularly at Consumerism Commentary and my thoughts about earning money with blogs, non-professional blogging, professional blogging for the beginner, and bloggers earning over $100,000 from their websites.

Congratulations man, good interview.

RE: klerg – it hits the DB every pageload unless you have caching installed/turned on… mySQL can’t handle a lot of connections.
