Not a surprise. I have been approached by some large blogs from time to time, the minute I discuss a contractual arrangement they go silent. Contracts are binding agreements, the fact some of these large bloggers avoid them like the plague is a sign they want some free gravy.
But the fact is traffic is down since the election – way down. And I am sure ads are drying up. And all those living comfortably on the ebb and flow of public debate are hurting. (Thankfully, with the support of our readers, I can fund this personal endeavor here at the Strata-Sphere).Â
I hope these wonderful voices are not silenced, especially in this time of conservative and GOP renewal. I for one think there are options to make a business in the blogosphere, but the winning models will take some time to work themselves out. After all, this is a brand new enterprise, not even a decade old in reality.
