Does Blogging Have an 'Establishment'?

New York Magazine makes a case on this week’s cover, in an article looking in-depth at the business model for blogging. The good news: It is possible to break into the so-called A List, but you have to work hard to get there.

    I found the article actually kind of depressing and discouraging–working hard for little or no money at a shot at the Big Time is, well, a real “putting your eggs in one basket” kind of thing. Perhaps blogging shouldn’t be about making the “A-list” (whatever that means–I wonder these days) but about having *some* voice/say in media, no matter what the level. Perhaps the focus might be better on how one serves a community, or how one’s blog might serve one in the greater world–not that blogging is an end unto itself. Keep it real, not a pipe-dream.
