When I used to get paid (with real life dollars—a good amount of them!) for writing. Now I get “paid” in comments (and not very many of them) and personal satisfaction (which I guess is priceless) for writing my own blog. However, there is just something special about seeing your “byline” in print, and to know that as a published writer your work is still floating out there in the world wide web.
P.S. Your comments do mean a lot to me :)
