    Seems like there aren't that many folks who work 40hrs a week being *just* a blogger?! Unless you're a political blogger and you're family is rollin' in benjamins ... it just seems unrealistic there are many fulltime bloggers. Am I off on this?

    When I dream at night, I'm a Lady Thriller. Please don't tell my wife I wrote that.

    As a freelance writer, I'm not comfortable with any of the options you have.

    That's now an option. I think it's interesting that so many sports editors are on here.

    I agree. I also find it interesting there are so many writers on here. I just always figured it would be more layout and copy editor people because in theory they are on their computers all night.

    But layout and copy editors are on the computer all night because they are WORKING ... not playing on SJ...as we know a lot of writers in press boxes all over America are. :eek: ;D

    Good point, I forgot how Rockbottom's thread told us all about how writers screw around in press boxes. My bad.

    I'd go with reporter/copy editor/designer/photographer/ASE/cheap comic relief/holder of heavy things/tripod.

    I may not have read well enough, but I didn't find that as one of the options. I'm a dreaded writer, but don't worry, I'm on my personal computer and off the clock, editor types. Onward corporate warriors!

    How do we know they're really sports editors? Just because they say so? At my place, there's a guy who seems to think he's the sports editor even though he's about five rungs down the ladder.

    I teach college journalism after a career in sports information, but I also freelance, so I'm one of the three (as of right now) who consider themselves freelancers.

    I'm a public affairs officer at a large hospital.
    We write stories and pitch them to weeklies.
    We escort various and numerous media folks while they interview patients or staff and put together stories. We also escort VIPS or celebs who come to visit patients.
    I voted for "public relations" but probably shouldn't have.
