Blogging was monetarily unrewarding at conventions

The bloggers, who did a great job at the Republican and Democratic conventions, were paid very little or nothing at all for all the clicks they made. That was in a report released by NBC News a few weeks ago. Despite, keeping the public informed, as well as the opposing campaign camps, bloggers received very little reward for their efforts. But then again, is that why they did it? I don't know, but one would think just being able to watch history in the making and being able to write and rub elbows with some of the big political people from around the country would have been payment enough. Afterall, no one could go to the bathroom without it being blogged in, and what about opinions. Gees, they ran around like a rabid dog. It seemed like everyone had an opinion and everyone gave one even if they weren't asked. They were conventions reported on as never before and allowed people to get a first-hand look at what was happening. From the trascription of the speeches to the interviews and stories hat appeared....everyone should have learned something about the conventions as well as the candidates and their supporters. maybe we were allowed to receive too much information.
