Yet whether the progressive blog will function nearly as well without its politically plugged-in guiding light remains open to question.
Over at Anchor Rising, Justin Katz is hopeful of generating enough revenue to devote more time and development effort to the blog, “but for the time being, it remains mostly a hobby.”
Considering this, aspiring bloggers might do well to remember the advice of one of Katz’s fellow contributors, Marc Comtois: “You have to do it because you love doing it for its own sake. Lots of blogs flame out. People get bored or realize how hard it is. But I think that so long as you are passionate about something — whether politics, music, food or whatever — you will be able to keep it going. Just don’t ever look at it as a way to make money or gain power.”
