Going Pro

Interesting to see Jason Kottke doing kottke.org as a full-time job and that he will be doing it on the basis of contributions from readers rather than advertising revenue.

It is perfectly concieveable to me that bloggers could sustain themselves this way if they get enough readers. On a more modest scale the same principle applied when we raised enough money for Mark Woods of wood s lot to be able to buy himself anew computer a few years back. I just new I didn't want Mark to stop blogging and that I was willing to pay for that.
