SULLIVAN’S BALANCE SHEET: Andrew Sullivan’s Web log appears to be in the black–or close to it:
If we stay completely still, and don’t grow at all, I will be able to pay myself a salary more than comparable to my salary at The New Republic. It won’t make me rich, but it sure will pay the rent and then some. This is your achievement, and I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say it’s a small milestone in e-journalism. We may not have made much yet – but this site has now made more profit than Slate and Salon combined. Thanks again – and please keep this success growing. You’ve proved the nay-sayers wrong. Which is why the anti-blog backlash from the established media is now underway. Methinks they’re a little rattled. As well they might be.
