Bloggers Forming Union?
To begin with, the situation is not at all unlike the organization of freelance writers in the early '80s.
"I think people have just gotten to the point where people outside the blogosphere understand the value of what it is that we do on the progressive side," said Susie Madrak, the author of Suburban Guerilla blog, who is active in the union campaign. "And I think they feel a little more entitled to ask for something now."
But just what that something is may be hard to say.”
By their very nature, many bloggers lean a bit towards the
independent side, and that might make finding enough common ground
for the majority of them to agree on anything a serious challenge.
