Blogging and shining shoes

There has been some debate recently about how plausible it is to make money as an independent writer on the web using advertising. Daniel Lyons who used to famously be ‘Fake Steve Jobs’ wrote an article about how becoming rich as a blogger is nigh-on impossible. Two people who do make a living from blogging, Jason Kottke and Andrew Sullivan, have some interesting responses: Kottke has a nice metaphor; while Andrew Sullivan says “I wrote this blog for years as a labor of love.
