Everything I know about the news business
I thoroughly enjoyed a recent Medium post by Sean Blanda, where he discusses the news business. I have a lot of interest in publishing and news, something WordPress is core to.
Sean highlights a number of challenges for the news business — from advertising and revenue to evergreen vs short term content, building an audience, and more.
Inspiration for his post came in part from Marc Andreessen’s rant on the future of news, something that inspired me to write about WordPress and journalism, and I did a relevant interview as well.
