What Online Outlets Would You Pay to Read?

What online outlets would you pay to read?

When Andrew Sullivan decided to leave The Daily Beast and start his own venture–asking readers to pay $19.99 a year to read the content.

In response, New York Times communications assistant Jordan Cohen asked a question on Storify (embedded below): What Blogs Would You Pay $19.99 A Year To Read?

Here’s more from Sullivan: ” So for the next month, we’re going to offer you advance membership of the Dish for $19.99 a year, which translates to $1.67 a month, which is around a nickel a day. The meter won’t start until February, and the price won’t change then, but by pre-subscribing, you give us a crucial financial bridge to get to independence – and you’ll never notice a thing when the transition happens. To be honest, we didn’t know where to set the price – we have almost no precedents for where we want to go – but $19.99 seemed the lowest compatible with a serious venture. We wanted to make this as affordable as possible, while maximizing revenues.”
