Andrew Sullivan Has Over $500,000 in Pre-Subscriptions

Andrew Sullivans new site — ad free and completely reader-supported — arrives Monday. Since announcing he was setting off on his own earlier this month, Sullivan reports that has already raised over half a million dollars in pre-subscriptions:

The meter and new ad-free site arrives Monday; we migrate (I seriously have no idea what that means) from the Beast over the weekend. But we just passed $500K in pre-subscriptions. Which is to say: holy shit. Seriously: this is still a little hard to absorb. But thank you so much.

Not a bad way to start things off.
