The Stopgap: a blog after my own heart

I found out about The Stopgap on Nieman Lab yesterday and it’s my kinda blog:

The Stopgap’s motto: “It’s better than nothing.”

This will be an old fashioned, general interest blog, mostly written by us. We’ll make no money, produce no podcasty newslettery bullshit, and pay nothing—although readers can donate direct to guest authors thru financial socials.

via Twitter

I like that it’s general interest, devoid of intrusive ads, AI-generated content, and all the negative crap you get from publications hyperfocused on SEO. Again, my kinda blog considering all my blogs follow this ethos. What’s not to love? I love it so much, I’ve added it to my blogroll.

Go check them out.
