15 years ago, bloggers were all 20-30 something kids trying to get a foothold against 40-50-year-olds working in newspapers and magazines. Now newspapers and magazines are all 20-30 year olds, and bloggers/self-publishers are the older generations. https://t.co/JoqXwRFbau

Andrew Sullivan stops blogging, and blogging itself is dead. Andrew Sullivan resurrects his blog on Substack, and blogging is making a comeback. I suppose this is the gentrification stage of blogging, where all the media personalities with paid subscribers move back into our quaint little neighborhood to get away from the bland uniformity and sky-high social taxes of corporate media. Ah, well, they’ll probably be hopping on another shiny new tech platform soon enough, and we amateur hobbyists will be left in peace again. Just gotta wait ’em out. Quick, everybody, act rustic, and maybe they won’t even notice us.
