Former VP of Sales and Marketing for CNET’s B2B sites, Chas Edwards, is set to join John Batelle’s new blog advertising network, FM Publishing, as Vice President: sales and market development.

He writes on his new job:

“Two big challenges remain, though. First, most of these bloggers haven’t figured out how to quit their day-jobs and pay rent at the same time. Second, marketers who are willing to kick in rent money for the opportunity to participate in this high-energy connection between blog publishers and their audiences don’t have a scalable mechanism for doing so.”

Unfortunately Edwards also states there are only 10 million bloggers in the world. Not even close Chas, hope John can count better.
