Kottke goes full-time

One of my favourite bloggers, Kottke, has decided to quit his job and become a full-time blogger. I like Kottke because kottke.org remains one of the few major "personal" blogs i.e. he just blogs about and links to anything he finds interesting - as he puts it, "I'm interested in too many things to settle on design or programming or writing or a particular topic" - which is what I'm interested in maintaining for dsng.net (although my baseball thoughts will remain in another realm).

I was actually thinking about this as I walked home today, actually, before I read the news about Kottke: there are so few blogs with an all-inclusive (polymathic?) slant. I guess it's like the New Yorker vs most other magazines - the general trend is to be specialised, but once in a while something comes along that's so interesting to read it can cover anything across a whole spectrum.

Edit: Wired weighs in on the topic.



How do you earn money by becoming a full time blogger?


Donations - at least, that's his plan.
