Andrew Sullivan to Leave Daily Beast, Strike Off on Own Again

When I first stumbled into blogging over 12 years ago, it was for two reasons: curiosity and freedom. I was curious about the potential for writing in this new medium; and for the first time, I felt total freedom as a writer. On my little blog, I was beholden to no one but my readers. I had no editor to please, no advertiser to woo, no publisher to work for, no colleagues to manage. Perhaps it was working for so long in old media that made me appreciate this breakthrough so much. But it still exhilarates every day.

For the first time in human history, a writer - or group of writers and editors - can instantly reach readers - even hundreds of thousands of readers across the planet - with no intermediary at all.

    Pay $19.99 or what you think a year of reading the Dish is worth to you.

    I wonder how many suckers they will draw?

    I have to admit I read Sullivan back in the 02-04 timeframe, when he analyzed things from a semi-partisan viewpoint. Now, ugh.
