If Rubin believes bloggers are so low that she could not reach down to punch one in the nose, she can get the hell out! There are plenty of bloggers (like me ) working a regular job during the day, coming home to write all hours of the night, and waking early to write again. We would kill to get a paid gig, so we take any story. Most of the time we are writing because we feel passionate about our chosen subjects. Most of the time we do not get paid for toiling at all hours, but our tip jars are always open (see upper left-hand column).
