"Top Emerging Jobs In Publishing" [FOLIO: August], which outlined new must-have positions, spurred reader Susan Cross to comment: "I see similar changes in job titles for writers. As a freelance and contributing writer of magazine articles for both quality print and Webzines, my experience is that both are in financial trouble. The writing jobs being posted are Web-based and often 'ghost blogging.' I am capable of writing blogs as a ghost, but the concept seems to cross an ethical line. Perhaps, the only way to make a living as a writer will be marketing-blogging for other people's products. Advertising account managers are really in trouble, I would think."
