Six Apart Unveils a Journalist Bailout Program (Limited-Time Offer)

To every increasingly dark and consuming cloud there is a silver lining! Six Apart has just announced its own Journalist Bailout Program in the form of free pro accounts on TypePad for journalists and professional bloggers who have recently lost their jobs. That is no small offer these days! In case you’re wondering the pro account differs from the regular one in so far as it “allows multiple authors and blogs as well as more storage and control over the design.” Also, Six Apart is throwing in “a spot in the Six Apart Media advertising program, promotion on Blogs.com and other information and advice in how to succeed in online journalism.” Says founder Anil Dash:

I know that journalists are a skeptical bunch, so I’m not trying to bullshit anyone: The TypePad Journalist Bailout Program is not a silver bullet…It’s not going to singlehandedly preserve the career and income of every working journalist who has a job today. And frankly, the response has been so overwhelming that we won’t be able to accept every application at first.

Still, this is apparently a limited time offer so get yours in now!
