The "City of Brotherly Love" is making no friends in the blogosphere these days. Bloggers in Philadelphia have been receiving letters from the city asking them to pay $300 for a business privilege license. This has bloggers fuming, as most of them never even come close to making a profit. Sean Barry, has earned only $11 in the two years he's been running his blog, Circle of Fits, and thinks it's ridiculous he has to pay $300 for something he sees as his hobby, not a job.
