We invented Professional Blogging ;)

We created a new category of work back in 2003 called blogging. Folks didn’t think that would work out.

from Jason Calacanis.

I enjoy reading this guys blog and he has a lot of good ideas and shares great stuff. It is unreal how much he thinks of himself at times. To say that “we created a new category of work in 2003 called blogging” is just plain inaccurate.

We were working/blogging well before 2003 as were lotsa of others. It is not unusual to see such a lack of humility from a yank entrepreneur of course. Maybe I should start blabbing and making stuff up. Folks just might believe it.

    I think Weblogs, Inc. was the first company to pay a large group of people to blog. Gawker had two blogs when we started and I think three bloggers. We had 300 bloggers getting paid well over $100,000 a month, and we really made it a career for folks so they could move from part-time, to full-time, and on to a producer.

    I don’t of anyone who really made it into a profession before us with the exception of Nick Denton.

    “I think…” (your comment above) vs. “We created…”. (your blog post)

    Maybe you did. There are a lot of people doing a lot of things that we don’t know about. It is possible that you are the 1st to build a large network of bloggers like that. Of course, when you started in 2003 – you didn’t have 300 bloggers – it took a while to ramp up while others we doing the same.

    You are blog comment hunter jason. Your comments are everywhere on the info superhighway. Well done and thanks for clarifying.

    I think we had 100 in a couple of months… so, I would say we have a good case for claiming that we started the professional blogging trend.
