The Enquirer says I can make money off this dang blog

December 26, 2007 09:19 AM

Actually, they're just running an AP wire story, but it's interesting nonetheless:

NEW YORK – Zach Brooks pocketed $1,000 this month blogging about the cheap lunches he discovers around midtown Manhattan ($10 or less, preferably greasy, and if he’s lucky, served from a truck).

The site,, is just a year and a half old and gets only about 2,000 readers daily, but it’s already earning him enough each month for a weekend trip to the Caribbean – or in his case, more fat-filled culinary escapades in the city.

In the vast and varied world of blogging, Brooks is far from alone.

It’s no longer unusual for blogs with just a couple thousand daily readers to earn nearly as many dollars a month.

Well, that may be a little bit of an exaggeration, if you ask me.  You'll notice I haven't quit my day job.  Or maybe you all just aren't clicking enough on those google ads.  Click click click!  A reader told me this weekend that she bought one of those Hillary Clinton nutcrackers off my site.  Made me so proud.  It's a good thing to not only support NBS, but the entreprenurial genius behind the Hillary Clinton nutcracker!

I also like this point from the article:

Getting paid might even help validate what may otherwise seem like a silly or obscure obsession.

Amen to that!
