Jacob, can you tell us how you pay YOUR bills and why bloggers should toil for nothing and give their work away out of some misbegotten sense of idealism or charity?

Bloggers are people who just want internet fame because they think they look important to their friends by their clicks and twitter followers.

Some bloggers are paid. Some bloggers attached to legit journalism entities are for real. But a lot of people in legit journalism are so fearful of their job security they hate ALL bloggers. Some of these people would do better to work harder themselves.

There's only so many paying jobs in newspapers and they are slowly dying by the day (see the Trib). Some people don't land that paying writing job out of college and so they write on their own until they make it full time.

Some papers underpay for 30 years and treat their writers like crap (John Perrotto's thoughts) to the point where he doesn't work as hard to scoop things. Yet in the journalism world he'd still be more respected than those "idiot bloggers" right?

The only difference between bloggers and established media is access and some established media don't do much with that access to begin with.

I have to laugh at this. I don't work hard? I'm lucky if I have five full days off the entire year. Give me your real name and number instead of hiding behind an alias. I'll call you and explain exactly how the real world is.
