Suite101 earnings up dramatically this week

Now, doubling my earnings these days isn't what it used to be, but this week my earnings at Suite have shot up 51% over last week, with a 10% page view increase.

I'm hoping May was rock-bottom for Suite. My overall decline from February to May was about 65%. I'm actually doing better than some, so I can't complain (much).

Are all web writers just content slaves for the machine?

Oliver Miller has a very compelling story about his years as a staff writer for AOL, writing for their TV division.

Are all web writers just content slaves in some form? Whether you're a staff writer or an independent writer writing a blog, doing SEO rev share, etc., to what extent are we all praying to (and being preyed on by) the great god SEO?

Food for thought.
