As the blogosphere evolves and micropublishers explore monetisation, a tiny handful of blogs has ventured down the paid subscription route. British football blog The Tomkins Times and US new age site Elephant Journal were among the very first.
In February 2012 Frockwriter became the first fashion blog to join them.
Frockwriter was the first blog to partner with New York-based digital e-commerce specialist Press+, which works with over 400 media affiliates. Here are a couple of stories that were written on our metered paywall launch last year.
In twelve months, we garnered a subscriber list of some heavy-hitters in the Australasian – and indeed international – fashion/media business. From managing directors to model agents, luxury brand public relations agents, fashion agents, newspaper/magazine/digital editors and producers, media trainers, financial brokers, photographers, designers, literary agents, models and bloggers.
Premium subscribers receive exclusive industry features and interviews – content that is not available on the blog.
