Not The Reader’s Problem
I was going to write up some thoughts about this piece by Ben Brooks (and Stephen Hackett’s response), but Macdrifter did an excellent job:
But here’s the thing, it’s not the reader’s problem. It’s capitalism. Provide a valuable product that is unavailable somewhere else and people will pay for it. If they don’t, then I guess it wasn’t valuable enough. Maybe all they think a site is worth is a split second of looking at an ad. Maybe they can find that same link or analysis on a dozen other WordPress sites.
I couldn’t agree more. Read the whole post here.
