The Andrew Sullivan traveling blog show

By Jack Shafer
January 4, 2013

Why is Andrew Sullivan selling? And what are his readers buying?

Sullivan, maestro of the popular blog The Dish, pulled off the impossible this week. After announcing that he was breaking free from his bosses at the Daily Beast and would henceforth finance the site with $19.99 annual subscriptions from readers, he collected about $400,000 in two days from nearly 12,000 Dish enthusiasts, some volunteering more than the suggested amount. Published since April 2011 by the Daily Beast, and before that by the Atlantic, and before that by Time, The Dish now returns to its 2000 origins as Sullivan's indie project.

The last huzzah?

So this is the end. The last post for this blog.

It's a good thing we've said our farewells, because this is also the last day for new comments.

People say to me all the time, "Bob, your blog is SO stupid, how do you get people to read it?"

Sorry, you’re not my type…

Hey Blog Guy, it's me!

Who?

Me! The guy who talks to you in italics so you can carry on pretend conversations in your blog everyday.

Hey, I never said I’m proud of myself!

Blog Guy, I've just started a new blog, and I could use some advice from a veteran like yourself. What do you do if you want to get a lot of traffic, but you don't want to work very hard for it?

Why this blog really is worthwhile

October 29, 2011

This blog may actually be worth the web page it is electronically printed on. A paper from the Center for Economic and Policy Research (not Dean Baker's shop but the other CEPR, in London) discussed here at VoxEU by University of Bologna economist Paolo Manasse, finds that, at least for American economic thinkers, blogging yields high returns -- even from an economists' strictly utilitarian, efficiency-maximizing perspective.

Blog Guy, as the proprietor of a very visual blog, can you tell me the easiest way to get people to look at a photograph?

Opinionated rant?

October 17, 2011

It's extremely disturbing when I come here for news and I find articles like this being promoted here. I left CNN (for the most part) and came to Reuters because I believe you are a better source for news. I strongly believe you are less biased, less opinionated, and just an overall better news source.
