I believe that there will always be a way for writing to be monetized. Obviously, there is a lot of free content out there. The content is free, though because of advertisement revenue, the selling of some sort of service or product or to get an agenda across.

Articles

Actually, I have used my blog to test articles before I take them elsewhere.  Just yesterday, I had an article originally here picked up by a newsletter. 

I have also taken old articles out and dusted them off to post in my blog.  After a few days, I decide whether to put them back away or remarket them.

Control

Well, personally, my hope is that writers will at least gain more control over their work. I strongly believe that readers connect with writers they enjoy, and given the opportunity, they'll stick with those writers.

Unfortunately, publishers often end up deciding whether readers have that opportunity. I'd prefer to have readers make that decision.

Of course, that's what this Network is all about.

Money!

I agree with some of that, but the sad truth is, that there will always be writers who can make a living from their work, and then there will be the likes of me!

I think publishers are far too sly and crafty to let money slip through their fingers, and will always find ways to make money. Web or not.

 

Steve.
