There's money in blogging!


The esteemed Dr. Doug Shevlin fowarded me this New York Times article about another guy with an M.D. after his name who blogs. Dr. Arnold Kim, pictured above, writes MacRumors.com, which monitors new developments coming out of the notoriously secretive Apple. Dr. Kim recently quit his day job as a physician, which brought in a six-figure income, to blog full-time, saying "“on paper, it was an easy decision.” Sweet.

Somehow I think that a blog on Apple secrets just might draw a bigger crowd than a blog on neuropathology... 'tis a strange world we live in.
O tempora, O mores!

What are you saying, Neil? There's no hope of me quitting my day job? Oh, ye of little faith!

Just because it isn't a big draw now, this little blogging site could be a huge one if it was frequented by many. So the question is, how does one market it? For now, I just clicked on several of the links in hopes you see some monetary pittances.

You rock, Sherry! Thanks for clicking on the ads so I can make money. I'm sure that Sergey Brin (one of Google's founders) can spare the change!
