Andrew Sullivan now offers monthly subscriptions

by Curtis Lee Fulton

Superstar blogger Andrew Sullivan reported today that his blog, the Dish, will now accept $1.99 monthly subscriptions. “It gets tougher from here on out,” wrote Sullivan, explaining that his blog was $247,000 short of its end-of-year goal of $900,000. So far the Dish has earned $135,000 in subscriptions since it built a metered paywall on February 1. Before the paywall, the blog earned  $518,000 from a “pre-subscription” drive in early 2013. Dish yearly subscriptions are $19.99, which would save the reader $3.89 a year as compared to the new monthly rate.
