Jason Kottke becomes a full-time blogger
How much money can a talented blogger make these days doing nothing but blogging? Jason Kottke of Kottke.org is about to find out -- he's quit his Web design job for a chance to become a full-time blogger. Blogging for blogging's sake, you might call it. He's tightening the belt and asking his faithful readers to lend him a hand by becoming micropatrons. It's probably easiest to explain what he's attempting to do by stating upfront what he's not trying to do:
"Kottke.org will also not become any less personal or any more professional. This is still my personal web site and is not going to mutate into a vertical blog about tech, design, politics, pop culture, or even asbestos. I'm not turning into a journalist. I'm still going to write and post almost exclusively about things I am interested in, whatever those may be at any particular moment. Just so you know, I may occasionally post cat photos, as is my right as the editor of a personal web site."
