Make $35 here, £50 there and €100 there, and if you do something like that each day then you’re earning £60k a year which is a nice living really. Just got to build it brick by brick and not turn anything down, not unless they’re taking the piss (“I’d like 10 blogs posts of 250 words each for $5 please!” shit can go….well, you know). Bernie G. November 5, 2015 at 4:10 pm Have stumbled out of Esplanaden 50 on a number of occasions after a bottle or two of Tuborg. Chris Miller November 5, 2015 at 7:46 pm Jeepers, that’s not much more than shelf-stacking at Tesco (though better fun, I’d hope). It sounds as though journalism is becoming like the law – a relatively small number of fat cats pulling down 6 or even 7 figures a year and thousands scratching around at the bottom trying to make enough to pay the rent/bar bill. Peter November 5, 2015 at 11:44 pm Tim, Clearly you need to invest the proceeds of your article in the company! theProle November 6, 2015 at 1:17 am If you can make £60k shelf stacking, kindly let me know where! I’d be willing to consider a career change from my current engineering specialism… Jack C November 6, 2015 at 4:15 am Someone like Auberon Waugh would be impossible now. Guardian: pampered cry-babies Daily Mail: clickbait and screeching Telegraph: see Daily Mail (with added Catholicism) Others: failed versions of the Daily Mail Only the Sport had the integrity and good manners to go bust. Clearly Journalism should be nationalised immediately. Jack C November 6, 2015 at 4:18 am “If you can make £60k shelf stacking” Under PQE this will be entirely possible, along with the 15 quid pint of milk. mike November 6, 2015 at 5:51 am I had no idea the pay in journalism was as low as that. I mean, I get paid more than that teaching English to old women for an hour and a half on Monday mornings. A 100 Euro gig is a four hour morning down at the local art college. mike November 6, 2015 at 5:58 am I should add that I think you’re doing good work by the way, which is how it should be irrespective of pay. Bernie G. November 6, 2015 at 5:14 pm In 1914 you could expect to be paid by the Strand magazine about £350 for a short story, not far off the annual income of a family doctor. Alas everyone is now a short story writer. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
