Why the per word rate is not applicable for blogging (and it’s not because I’m cheap)?

My old friend Tristan did a really comprehensivebut flawedjob comparing the per word rate of bloggers and magazine writers. Tristan is a really smart guy, but he got so caught up in building an Excel table that he forgot that writing for a magazine is much, much (much) more work then posting on a blog. Here is my IM conversation with him five minutes ago explaining what he missed.

tnlnyc: really I went through every entry on that day
tnlnyc: what did I miss?
