6 annenberg.usc.edu I used to be a fulltime reporter, and when you’re a reporter you have the luxury to report and write all day long, you know. There are very few meetings and if you’re going out to meet a subject you really are in this ‘cush spot’ which I realized after I started Bargain Babe because I had to do all of the business stuff, deal with advertisers, you know, get my site listed, work on SEO, network with people, learn everything I needed to know about running a business, filing my taxes, you know, all this stuff that, as a reporter, you don’t have to deal with. And it shifted but basically, I spent anywhere from a third to half of my time writing and the rest of the time, on all the business stuff.
