Blogging for fun and profit

Along these lines, a reader sends in the following:

Saw some frazzled, knitting bag-toting, middleaged Brooklyn lady reading a pamphlet on the uptown 2 this AM: “Blogging for Profit.” Key section: “Fame and Fortune.” Key do’s/don’ts: “Never, ever slander a person, business, or service!” and my favorite, “Get Links!”

We’d really like to get our hands on a copy of that pamphlet. If anyone has one, do send. Email FishbowlNY@mediabistro.com and we’ll give you a mailing address.

Blogging: the new Amway. We always knew it’d come to this.
