While Darren of problogger fame plays a joke on his readers by posting a "newspaper photo" of a local newspaper "The Age" covering sale of his blog for 5 million dollars on front page using this nifty tool; Brian, of copyblogger, explores new (old?) methods of making money from blogging - from fan list.
These two incidences happening next to one another have made me think about the future of websites in general and blogging in particular. While Google and Yahoo are fighting over the control of online advertising market, most of the small fishes are struggling to make their ends meet. And now that google has decided to jump into high paying romance, video, finance and real-estate the profit scope for smaller players has reduced further.
I am worried about this whole situation, have you given it a thought?
