“ I still consider Vermont home, and I miss it every day. Someone in the music business once told me, ‘Vermont is so great, but you have to earn it to be able to go back there and do music and just relax. I love that, because I want to go back to Vermont and just chill out with my family and friends, but I feel like I need to do this hustle for at least five more years. Then I will have earned the right to go there and live permanently again. ”

If you’re good enough, you should be able to have your readers subscribe to your site. I’m a tiny site by comparison with no resources. I don’t even have a business department, don’t even have a publisher. And we’ve managed to get 30,000 subscribers or thereabout, $900,000 in revenue last year, and our renewal rate is somewhere around 85 percent.

I’m not sitting here being pious. We’re just a little blog. But what does it tell you that BuzzFeed wouldn’t even dream of asking its readers to subscribe? Daily Beast can’t ask its readership to contribute. Gawker can’t get people to pay for its product. I don’t know why they’re not embarrassed that they can’t get their readers to support their work.

—    Fantastic interview with Andrew Sullivan, whose unrelenting idealism is the greatest antidote we have to such modern travesties of journalism as “native advertising” and sponsored content. Sullivan’s The Dish, which – like Brain Pickings – is supported directly by readers and remains a rare oasis of integrity, in addition to being one of the most interesting sites on the internet.
