How to put a price on your blogging

Michelle V. Rafter offers some advice on deciding how much to charge for a blog post. Among her tips: "If you can crank out a 250-word post on a topic you know well in 30 minutes, the $50 fee is equal to $100 an hour – not shabby. If you're writing about a topic that you have to search or do multiple interviews for and you end up spending four hours, that same $50 comes out to $12.50 an hour, or about what my son earned as a lifeguard at the local public pool."
