Blogging for Dollars: Giving Rise to the Professional Blogger

Towards the end of June, I was invited to a conference at the Banff New Media Institute, located in the midst of the Canadian Rockies in the province of Alberta. The title of the conference was "Producing New Media: Money and Law," and we explored and discussed funding models and legal issues for various new media projects, including Weblogs. During that weekend, I came to a realization that I've been mulling over ever since: a lack of money is hindering the growth and potential of blogging. Free--or personal--blogging can only take us so far.
