Andrew Sullivan, one of the earliest political bloggers and always one of the best, says he’s betting on his readers in moving his prominent Daily Dish blog to a “freemium” system (much free, some paid). Actually, he’s betting on himself.
To be still more accurate, he’s betting on himself and two colleagues – Patrick Appel and Chris Bodenner, who are departing the Daily Beast, the blog’s current home – to do more than create a sustainable business for themselves. If they can pull it off, they’ll help demonstrate that the broader journalistic ecosystem is evolving in sustainable ways.
