New York is investigating whether a blogger is considered self-employed or unemployed.  The decision hinges on the buck-per-day revenues she generated from Google ads on her blog.  When the former lawyer reported the revenue, the state launched an investigation into whether she still deserved unemployment benefits.

The site is still up, and the ads have been removed – which means New York’s Department of Labor succeeded in keeping a laid-off lawyer from experimenting with new revenue streams which could have lead to gainful self-employment.  Good job!
