Pardon me, while I sit back and dream of a life wherein I could make a living blogging.
Okay, I’m back. New York Magazine‘s blog Daily Intelligencer did a little breakdown of how much money they guessed Gawker‘s daddy, Nick Denton, makes annually through Gawker Media. It is, like, totally heartbreaking. I’m just going to ignore the fact that they estimate the company’s yearly revenue is somewhere between $20 to 52 million. That’s just something I can’t even wrap my head around. What is more painful is that the editors (35 total) each make about $70,000 per year. I trust this estimate because the author of the post is quite clearly a former Gawker editor. Actually, I think I remember reading that somewhere. Anyway, I’m going to get back to my actual job and try not to weep into my spreadsheets.
