Full-time blogger call it quits

Posted on 24th February, 2006

No it’s not me, I am not a full time blogger, but I am a full time Internet marketer so I can’t quit 😉

Jason Kottke, a Web designer who quit his job to run his blog full-time, has abandoned his plan to make a living through blogging after exactly one year.

He has been seeking payments from his regular readers to support his endeavor by creating a subscription model. From the article

Kottke revealed on Wednesday that he had raised a total of $39,900 from 1,450 donors. Most of that was received in the initial fund-raising drive in February and March 2005, when his project began.

In my humble opinion, the project could have been more successful had he expanded his revenue streams to accept other sources of income such as advertising and sponsorships. His blog feels bland because it lacks focus and which is probably the reason why it fails to attract attentions from others.
