Wikipedia contributors are voting whether or not to delete his entry, and the Daily Show features a segment mocking the media/blogger relationship, I guess it's about time that someone like Jason Kottke goes 'pro' as a blogger.

I don't know if I care as much about the promotion of blogging to the title of 'profession' as much as I wish that more sites offered the opportunity, NPR-style, to contribute $$$ (like MozillaZine, for example). Perhaps it's more important for a design-aware site like kottke to stay ad-free, but part of me grimaces whenever I visit BoingBoing and see the site plastered in ads (unless it's a site like Daily Kos or Eschaton that is promoting their political causes).

When you do the math, I spend $25 on a hardcover that lasts me three train trips. $30 for a site I read everyday and steal design cues from is a bargain.

I'm a kottke.org micropatron.
