However, it struck me: the old media dudes have no reason why people become bloggers. It’s a mystery to them. I mean, if you can write well, why aren’t you writing for them?
I don’t think that they get that not every single well-versed, passionate writer about a particular subject ends up writing about it for a huge corporation.
Reminds me of my first full-time job when I mentioned I once published some fanzines. The conversation went like this:
Suit: Did you make money at it?
Suit: Then why did you do it?
Me: Because I liked doing it.
Suit: [That Look that = You're a Nutbag and a Threat]*
*By the way, he was right. We're all on the thing he feared and never believed would come to pass: the Net!
