Corporate Bloggers earn $40k – $70k
There is an article in the WSJ today on how Blogging is becoming a Corporate Job for an increasing number of people:
In its short lifespan, blogging has largely been a freewheeling exercise in online self-expression. Now it is also becoming a corporate job.
A small but growing number of businesses are hiring people to write blogs, otherwise known as Web logs, or frequently updated online journals. Companies are looking for candidates who can write in a conversational style about timely topics that would appeal to customers, clients and potential recruits.’
Duncan points out that the jobs mentioned pay between $40,000 and $70,000 ($US) per year.
I’m not sure what the average wage in in the average wage is in the US but considering exchange rates it would put an Aussie on between $52,000 and $91,000 which at the lower end is around the average Aussie wage (from the last figures I saw) to a pretty decent income at the upper end.
