Is your life a tax write-off?

Here’s an interesting article from Wired discussing how those who make money blogging and podcasting write-off their expenses:

Nice work if you can get it. Which, technically, is the central conundrum of new media pioneers and their accountants at tax time: In an age when bloggers and podcasters are making a living — or trying to — by blogging and podcasting about their personal lives, what exactly is legitimate? And if writing off your personal life is as easy as writing about it online and getting some Google ads, why doesn’t everybody do it?

I’ve made my money blogging since 2004 and write off the incurred expenses such as internet service and gear purchases (computers, cameras, etc.). Even the space in my home where I work is a write-off. When you are your own small business, it’s possible.
