In a bold move a few weeks ago Jason Kottke, a well known blogger, quit his day job to blog full time. We've all heard about how blogging is changing journalism and yada yada, but until someone proves you can make a living with it, blogging will forever remain connotated with teenage girls writing bad poetry (go to LiveJournal, do a few random searches and you will see what I mean). So Kottke has asked for donations. He has been having a donation drive the last couple of weeks and it ends tomorrow. Don't donate if you think blogs are stupid or if you decide his blog isn't worthy of your money, but check it out and make up your own mind. This isn't the final battle for blogger's self respect, but it is a highly watched one.
