Advice On Blogging For A Living From A Rogue Blogger Chick

Last week, after mediabistro.com’s panel about business models for online media, we caught up with “rogue blogger chick” Maegan Carberry and asked her to tell us just how she does what she does. Her advice on how to make a living as a blogger is above. It may look like Maegan is telling a ghost story — the lighting was pretty awful — but what’s she’s saying is informative, not scary!

“What’s most important for you to understand is what role your blog plays in the written universe,” Maegan said. “If you don’t have a clear perspective about what you offer, you’re not going to succeed.”

More insight from Maegan and what earns her the most money out of all her projects, after the jump.
