Mandy Brown, on her blog, on the origin of blogs and how platforms for writing have to find a way to solve the “where will the money come from” problem.
All of which is a long-winded way of saying that our core discomfort with Medium—with most of online publishing—is we can’t quite see how the money works no matter how hard we squint.
I love blogs. So I love this piece. She’s right on. I’m still skeptical on Medium as a business.
