Watch Out, WordPress


MEDIUM IS LAUNCHING a set of tools to help publications publish and make money on the web. Dubbed Medium for Publishers, the WordPress competitor will offer publishers a free content management system, a standalone URL, and the ability to participate in two beta experiments—one to host promoted posts, the other to offer paid memberships.

A dozen sites have signed up at launch, including The AwlPacific Standard and Femsplain. The ten to follow will include Bill Simmons’ new site, The Ringer, and Time Inc.’s Money and Fortune….

“…Of course, in setting up shop on Medium, publishers are making a bet that Williams’ version of the future is right, and that Medium will continue to out-innovate competitors and provide its writers the very best publishing tools available. “
