Making meaningful money from blogging remains an elusive quest for most bloggers, even ones who have what might be terms "a lot" of traffic. Sure, there's ads, but that'll only take you so far.
Anyway, here's something cool: The blog Brownstoner, a popular Brooklyn-based blog about real estate, renovating and other things that appeal to Park Slope yuppies has launched its own flea market called Brooklyn Flea. It happens every Sunday in a parking lot in Ft. Greene. The vendors it appeals to sell antiques, vintage stuff, and other things that appeal to the site's readership. And according to a friend of mine, who has a business selling vintage clothing, the opening weekends have been hot hot hot.
Not that I fall into the targeted demo at all, but I'll have to check it out and report back.
