Show Me The Money (Again)

Ben Hammersley, in the Guardian, investigates ways to make the web pay, reckoning it’s reached the stage where the most popular bloggers could make a living out of it.

The plan has never been to make a living solely from Spinneyhead, but it does exist as a sort of force multiplier- a way to add value to traditionally distributed products and create and maintain interest in them (I know they’re a long time coming, but I am basically lazy after all). Now that I’m using CafePress again expect to see a few more T-Shirts and I’m mulling over ideas for their new publishing service. And this morning I was contemplating providing some of the best Spinneyhead photos as wallpaper for PCs or mobiles, perhaps I could charge 10p a go for them using the Bitpass product mentioned in the article.
