@IanCP: the blogs I read are much better than the vast majority of newspapers. There are plenty of blogs that are not worth reading - but there are also plenty of newspapers not worth reading (I grew up in Wimbledon which had no fewer than three free local weekly newspapers - it was a good month if they managed one article worth reading between them).
Getting back onm topic, I thought blogs were known to monetise badly?
On the other hand, I read economics blogs by professional economists, finance blogs by professional investors, IT blogs by programmers, political blogs by a range of thoughtful and intelligent people, etc.
