They Are Easy, Aren't They?

Blogging For Big Bucks

Paragraph One:

Like basically every other blogger whose [sic] seen it, I think this article from the Wall Street Journal on how hundreds of thousands of bloggers are making solid incomes is addled.
Paragraph Six:
Believe me, I'd love to think that blogging is a surefire path to riches and job security--but I'm afraid all most people get out of their blogs is the satisfaction of a job well done.
Good that she's paid for her blog, then. (Although under the "free market," shouldn't she not be rewarded for a job not well done?)

Added blather:  What the hell does this say about the WSJ? This is not standard WSJ op-ed page idiocy, this is from the (once somewhat respected) news part of the operation. Is this how they cover the world of business & the economy, w/ ass-stats?

Rupert Murdoch bought it.

What does it say about McArdle that she cries "ZOMG morons" when she catches the NYT saying something stupid, but the WSJ isn't attacked directly at all.

Susan of Texas, I was trying to imply that they sucked even before pseudo-American Murdoch took over, or I would have mentioned him.

Also notable (Yeah, I missed it.) is that the idiotic story is by Hillary Clinton's pollster strategist, Mark Penn. Well-known (well, y'know ...) Mickey Kaus titled his take on it "Why Hillary is President." Pretty funny. Very funny, for Mr. Kaus.

most blogs bring in pitiful amounts of money for their owners.Actually, most blogs bring NO amouonts of money for their owners.

Anecdotal evidence would suggest that almost all of us know many more computer programmers than professional bloggers...Yet another "it is true for me, therefore it is true for EVERYBODY" moment from Megan.

God, how long can she go on sucking this bad and still get away with it?

You are just trying to pretend you're not making hundreds of thousands of dollars on this blog so we don't start our own Fire Megan McArdle blogs and cash in on the fat money cake that is Megan's stupidity.
