Interview with Jason Kottke

Pro Blogging News 5 comments

Blogebrity interviews Jason Kottke at midway point of full-time blogging year about his decision to quit his job and go full time as a blogger - relying upon the support, through donations, of his readers. Blogebrity asks about whether Jason is considering putting ads on his blog and about how the contribution levels are currently going:

‘B: It seems close to the style used by advertising-supported blogs, in order to increase page views. Have you reconsidered putting ads on your blog?

K: Nope, haven’t reconsidered. No ads on kottke.org, probably not ever.

B: How, if I may ask, is the contribution flow?

K: Oh, it’s trickled down to almost nothing. Which is fine…I don’t really advertise it. The initial 3-week push was enough for the year and most of the regular readers saw it at that point and either contributed or didn’t. I don’t want to beat anyone over the head about it.’

It will be fascinating to see how Jason goes when the second year’s drive for donations comes around. His blog has definitely changed in the past 6 months and I’ll be interested to watch how readers respond to another invitation to donate. Read Jason’s blog at kottke.org.

  • Nice approach. I’m also looking forward to seeing how he does in Year Two. Definitely a refreshing change from Andrew Sullivan’s periodic pledge drives, which have the death-reek of public broadcasting about them.

  • Is this a new blog for SixAparts anti blog spam king Jay Allen I see in the comment ahead of me or are you another Jay Allen?

  • Another Jay Allen. He’s A-list. I am most firmly B-list.

    Jay Allen Prime actually came to my personal blog (http://www.thezeroboss.com/) a while ago and left a comment. We corresponded via email about some of the stuff coming out in MT 3.2 - which intrigued me deeply, since (1) I’m a geek and (2) my site runs off of MT. Seemed like an incredibly nice guy.

    And now I just realize that I’d have too much to drink tonight.

  • Gotta love his answers :)

  • why Kottke is not running banners at kottke.org ? This is insane.

    Regarding A-list and B-list: I am X-list - I have blog (comic strip blog) that is Xtraordinary and that nobody else has…. :-)

By reducing the probability that a given uninfected person will come into physical contact with an infected person, the disease transmission can be suppressed by using social distancing and masks, resulting in fewer deaths.

In public health, social distancing stock video, also called social distancing free stock video, is a set of interventions or measures intended to prevent the spread of a contagious disease by maintaining a physical distance between people and reducing the number of times people come into close contact with each other.

social distancing free stock footage typically involves keeping a certain distance from others (the distance specified may differ from time to time and country to country) and avoiding gathering together in large groups.

To slow down the spread of infectious diseases and avoid overburdening healthcare systems, particularly during a pandemic, several social-distancing measures are used, including wearing of masks, the closing of schools and workplaces, isolation, quarantine, restricting the movement of people and the cancellation of large gatherings.
