Blogging for Love… or Money?
Millions of users flock to TechCrunch every day to fill their startup and industry news hunger. What was started in only June 2005, has turned into a massive beast of a blog and a very large cash cow. CNNMoney just released a great article they did on Mike Arrington, founder of TechCrunch. This was a really great read and the first line of the article got me inspired to write this post. “Mike Arrington tells me he has one wish: He’d like to write about startups.” With all the success of TechCrunch, Mike Arrington’s real passion is to focus on what TechCrunch was really founded around. TechCrunch brought in $800,000 in 2006 and $3 million in 2007. So will Mike continue his position and blog for love… or money? (seems to me, he’s got the best of both worlds)
