Skeptic over at Dead “Twenty” – inside joke– ran an impressive post today regarding the ideas, benefits, and consequences of blogs taking VC funding.
I’ll run a few excerpts, but make sure to jump over there and read the full article.
He starts by asking, “So the question is, can bloggers successfully build businesses that are worth funding?” Then continues, “An even better question is: why raise the money?”
His post explores the market as well as high profile funded and private blogs.
The article features insight from Om Malik, Paul Kedrosky, and some guy named Brian Solis.
