Q:Hi! What are some of your favourite prose blogs? I'm fairly new to tumblr, looking to fill up my dashboard, and I very much trust your judgement!
Hi! Thanks for your trust! I am a prose feature tag editor for Tumblr, so I always have my eyes open for new writing. (Feel free to say “hi” if you write some yourself!)
Here are a few people I follow for prose/writing:
I follow quite a few, but these are the ones that come to mind first. Try searching the “prose” tag as well. I think the editors do a pretty good job of curating new and established prose writers.
By the way, if any of you on here like poignant, personal writing (and who doesn’t, really?) you can’t do better than Amanda. She’s funny, insightful, and, probably one of the best things I could say about a fellow writer, always surprising. Follow her.
"One of the greatest areas of revenue experimentation now involves website content that is paid for by commercial advertisers – but often written by journalists on staff – and placed on a news publishers’ page in a way that sometimes makes it indistinguishable from a news story."
Revenue experimentation sounds a lot like making journalists work as advertising copy writers. I could have written a much shorter article about the State of the News Media 2014.
Media outlets constantly find ways to make employees do more without paying them for it. The end.
I hope the rest of the record’s like this.
Today when I begin writing I’m aware: something that I don’t understand drives this engine.
A customer in cowboy boots and a hat came in looking for a 49th wedding anniversary present for his wife.
