In January of this year, it was revealed that websites like Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post were forced to lay off many people as the shifting in people’s reading habits took a turn for the worse when it came to the MSM.

During a subsequent interview, one of the Buzzfeed executives revealed that one of their highest earning departments, when it came to page views, was in fact a Michigan teen named Rachel McMahon who made Buzzfeed quizzes for free.

During a recent interview with the New York Post, Rachel said she calculated that Buzzfeed made about $3.8 million in pageviews from the quizzes which she provided to the site for free.

Luckily she at least got a book deal out of it.

“What Kind of Quiz Book Are You?” is due on shelves July 2. We wish Rachel all the best. She deserves it.
