(CORRECTED) John Gruber: “I make a good living writing .” Yes – still over half a million a year, by my estimate, using published rate cards. (Gruber’s sponsorships are now double my previous estimate.) I later corrected the sponsorship numbers for the Talk Show.
|RSS feed||Weekly||$9,500||$475,000 (assume Christmas off)|
|The Talk Show||40/year||$3,750 gross × 3/show with 4-way split||$450,000 ÷ 4 = $112,500|
|T-shirts||80 semiannually||$11 net||$1,760|
|Amazon affiliate links||$75|
Of course I asked him about my estimate . “Would that not be a good living?” he replied.
Gruber has a business writing about the Macintosh and Apple while Macworld does not.
