It looks like cash hungry local governments are getting awfully rapacious these days: Between her blog and infrequent contributions to, over the last few years she says she’s made about $50. To [Marilyn] Bess, her website is a hobby. To the city of Philadelphia, it’s a potential moneymaker, and the city wants its cut.

Paying to blog? I tend to think this goes a bit over board.
Maybe this is a way to discourage free speech.
Time will tell I guess.

*Note to mods...I am sure I messed this up, feel free to correct me if needed thanks.

It isn't often that I read something that makes my draw drop and then leaves me wordless.

Well, right now my draw is on my desk and I have no idea at all what to say about this.

I've never been paid to blog, but if somebody somewhere decided to tax or charge me for the posts I make or for my personal blog??? I'd be out a LOT of money.
