The firm behind blogging platforms Typepad and Movable Type has launched a promotional offer for redundant journalists looking to dip their toe into the world of independent online publishing.
“We’re offering a platform to publish your work and profit from it,” the firm says on its website. “We know that for a lot of working journalists, one of the biggest obstacles towards independence can be just trying to figure out where to start. Now you’ve got an answer.”
