Posted By Darren Rowse 28th of July 2006 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

David Pogue from the NYT has a good interview with Ana Marie Cox, blogger from the massively successful Wonkette. She’s also recently been hired to become Washington editor of as a result of her blogging.

In it he asks her about how she got into blogging (Nick Denton discovered her in a grocery store) as well as exploring what it’s like to be a paid blogger with a contract.

They also dig into the ‘ingredients of a successful blog’ in which Ana talks about how she sees a move from blogs run by individuals to blogs being run by groups of people as being a shift that is happening and will continue to happen in the successful blog ranks.
