A Business Model?

For months -- ever since there has been a Blogosphere -- the Blogosphere has wondered whether it would be possible to make money from blogging. Is there a valid business model? All I can say is that Sekimori seems to have figured it out: judging from the elegance and variety of their designs, I think they probably charge a fair amount. I wouldn't know, since I'm happy with my current design, and too cheap and too lazy to ask for a price quote. But if they charged only, say, $20 for a complete redesign, surely everyone but me would have paid by now? The question remains: is there a way to make money from blogging other than redesigning other people's blogs?

But what is money compared to Christopher Kanis' discovery of true love?

Sounds like 'taking in each others wash', and I wonder, too.

Sure. Same way you make money developing software, as Mickey Kaus would tell you: sell to Microsoft.

It's my understanding that her price is extremely affordable. I think Chris Kanis can fill you in privately.

I seem to recall reading somewhere she did a site design for about $400, but I don't remember where. Lord knows I could use the help, but I'm too cheap, too.
