Cox: On to something better?

By Steve Outing

Interesting. Former “Wonkette” Ana Marie Cox has been named Washington editor of Time.com. Moving from blogging (where, she reports, she was paid modestly by publisher Gawker Media, but gained a wide following and hip reputation) to a mainstream gig is still seen by many people as a positive career step. But in time, I think blogging (at the highest levels) will be seen as a fine place to be in a career — with no further movement necessary to feel good about yourself as a professional and be making enough money.
