Most of us worried the never-ending stream of distracting tidbits would spell doom for longform content. As we’ve seen, long pieces are as good as ever, and thanks to tools like Longreads, they are even easier to find. Now Longreads and its new parent company WordPress dot com (my most excellent sponsor) are teaming up to create a fund that will support independent writers and publishers. This is awesome. Glad to be associated with these folks.
