The announcement of this new left-leaning blog made me wonder something…
When left-leaning blogs and websites show advertising, what happens to the money? I mean, a blog is nothing without its readers, just like a company is nothing without its workforce, right?
Is the money left over after operational costs are paid dispersed evenly amongst the people who comment and the site owners/publishers? Do they only accept enough advertising revenue to pay the bills for hosting?
Does it seem right that the owner of such a site would profit off the work of the people who leave comments there and provide content and community? And really, it shouldn’t matter how good your comments are or how often you comment, right?
I guess the principle dictate that whoever has been commenting the longest (seniority) should get the most money, even if they don’t leave comments that often any more.
I think people who comment on blogs should unionize.
At least it would get me to stop blogging. The only thing my commenters are ever going to get here is berated. 😀
