Occupation: Blogger

A very interesting article on professional bloggers at WSJ.com:

“In America today, there are almost as many people making their living as bloggers as there are lawyers. Already more Americans are making their primary income from posting their opinions than Americans working as computer programmers, firefighters or even bartenders.

Pros who work for companies are typically paid $45,000 to $90,000 a year for their blogging. One percent make over $200,000. And they report long hours — 50 to 60 hours a week.

And you get to wear your pajamas.

  1. A lot of opinionated bs in this article. It takes about 100,000 unique visitors a month to make $75,000? Not. But I guess this person wrote with just the facts they could find. There’s a lot more to this story than you’ll find in the story.
