“I’m going to go about my business, thinking some things, and some of those things I will want to write about and share. I enjoy having this space where I can do that without deadlines, word count, or pay.”
I really enjoyed this piece on newsletters (and I'm not even a subscriber to this one!) and I think the reason is because so many of them have now become revenue sources it was refreshing to see someone who talking about it being the opposite of that. I'm definitely not against folks getting paid for their work, we all deserve that, but I've been wondering a lot lately how this will all play out. As communities created by various newsletters become echo chambers and as people realize they may not be able to afford to pay everyone for their work much less have time to read it all, what will become of all these newsletters?
