Mac Rumors More Lucrative Than Practicing Medicine

The New York Times wrote a pithy headline, “My Son the Blogger,” for their piece on Arnold Kim, publisher of MacRumors.
The headline fits, since Kim has decided to stop practice medicine in order to pursue his blog full time. When he told his father, also a doctor, about the decision, Dr. Kim was pleased that “he was very supportive of it, which was sort of surprising to me.”
Dr. Kim was bringing home a six-figure income as a doctor, but he recognized that blogging was becoming more lucrative. He says the site also yields a six-figure income for him.
