It’s been nice taking a little break from the blog, I’ve got a few things I’m working on but it’s taking much longer than I’d suspected. I went to a MeFi/Flickr meetup last night and got to hang out with some people whose work I admire, including Matt from MeFi, PVR blog, etc., Judith from 20 Things, Merlin from 5ives and 43 Folders, Heather from Hchamp.com, and a whole bunch of other fun and interesting people. One thing that really struck me was that none of these people are making any serious money. If they’re making money at all, it’s from their day job and not their cool webthingy (which if they’re lucky might pay for itself). As a person busy evaluating what the next step career-wise might be, that’s a pretty interesting observation. I’m not looking to get rich, but it’s nice being able to pay the rent.
