Pajamas Media: A Big Bust?

This is only of interst to bloggers, but...

Okay, so I've been waiting to here from Pajamas Media, the last best chance at some of that Crazy Blog-Money I crave.

And it turns out... well, apart from a signing bonus, they're pretty much offering me just a little more per month than I've been making on BlogAds. But with BlogAds, I can have great months, whereas with Pajamas Media I'm stuck at the same level every quarter.

Or, I could go with the "Basic" plan, in which case I can continue using BlogAds too, but Pajamas Media gets the top four slots, which will of course depress my BlogAds prices.

I'm not knocking Pajamas Media. I suppose they did their best to negotiate with the sort of big coporate advertisers they wanted to attract. But they're barely offering more than Internet-based t-shirt sellers are offering.

Long story short: You can't make money in blogging unless you're one of the top ten bloggers. So, probably, best not to try at all.

Oh, And... I never had much by way of illusions that blogging could provide a salary, but I had hoped that Pajamas Media could manage to make it a worthwhile side-gig.

But the amount I'm being offered (and I'm a semi-somewhat-large blogger) doesn't even make it that.

I think it's time to go back to my sequined throw-pillow business.
