AOL Weblogs: Getting the Milk for Free?

ucowrl.jpgSilicon Alley Insider is reporting that a number of bloggers over at AOL’s Weblogs Inc. are currently working for free (or free gratis for all you Deadwood fans). Seems that AOL has overspent this year and needed to pull back this month (bloggers are always the first to go!) in order to keep within budget. However, some of its writers apparently decided to carry on with their duties sans paycheck, which is a loyal decision to be sure, and yet it also sets a dangerous precedent; as we all know, why should anyone pay when they can get the milk, or blog, for free.
