Happy 25th year, blogging!
I want to highlight two things from this article (but you should read the whole article, everything not highlighted is interesting too):
1. Blogging doesn’t need monetization. Although I didn’t sell a company to Symantec, like Dave Winer did, I blog without showing ads on my site. I’m blogging to share my voice:
And despite its wide readership, it has never run ads. This may be partly because Dave doesn’t need the money […] but it’s mainly because he didn’t want to compete for the attention of his readers.
2. It’s nice that the Guardian recommends using RSS readers:
The blogosphere continues to be one of our greatest information resources. So why not log off social media, get yourself an RSS reader and wise up?
I never heard of his blog before, to be honest. And the shaky train, I sit in, and the bad WiFi in this train don’t allow me inspect it further at the moment. It also seems to load somewhat slow and doesn’t have https. 🤔 ↩︎
