How Much Do Bloggers Get Paid?

Take note, citizen journalists and mainstream media alike: bloggers get paid about $25 per post.

Or, in other words, at three posts per day, roughly $1,500 per month freelancing, according to an interesting article by ReadWriteWeb. And that's not including in-house or full-time bloggers:

Our respondents reported annual pay rates ranging from $45k and $55k with benefits (!) up to $70k, $80k and $90k with bonuses. We're tempted to say, based on the anonymously submitted but descriptive replies we got, that the closer to pure journalism our respondents were doing the lower their wages were.

What do you think? Is it enough, at 50-60 hours a week? Does this surprise you?
