For years, the pop culture blog Hipster Runoff has puzzled, intrigued and enraged the "alt" and "mainstream" world in almost equal measure. Gawker honored him in 2009 with the much-coveted "Hipster of the Decade" award.Never heard of it. But this part is interesting:
The money was pretty decent (usually took a long time to actually reach my pocket due to advertisers delayed payment schedules), but being a one person blog it is probably not a solid long-term career choice. Plus on top of that, ad networks usually take at least 50% off the top.Apparently selling out is not selling out and is some other undefined thing. Expect lots of ads and pornography at this site soon. But interesting and edgy ads and pornography. You know, hip. Plus paywall.
If I could have sold out, I would have, but that opportunity never came, and probably wasn't going to for HRO.
