Here's a good article on the blogging phenomenon in the Globe and Mail.
Here's a bit of advice for you. If you want to make a lot of money, don't go into blogging. Heck, I should know. Not even Andrew Sullivan is able to drive a Mercedes with his blogging revenues.

So does everyone, they say.
Having a blog is a joke. And this article explains why it's a joke.
Support my advertisers. PLEASE! Maybe I'll make enough money to go to Tim Horton's. (For you international viewers, Tim Horton's is a very successful doughnut/coffee place in Canada. Lots of money in doughnuts.)
