We asked 20 top-tier tech bloggers and social media consultants to tell us how much they get paid, by the post, by the hour or by the month - however their rates are set. Half of them told us, on the condition that we wouldn't disclose who they were or where they worked. The end result is an anecdotal overview of what some of the top tech bloggers and social media consultants are making.
