The KinshiPress Newsletter, Issue #5

Hi from Steve. Welcome to the fifth issue of this Friday Tuesday newsletter. Sorry for sending this late. I had some problems with the mailing list.

My aim is to give you the most helpful news and updates for WordPress publishers. If you want more regular updates, join the Facebook group.

A new nonprofit acquired all the newspapers in Maine

A few weeks ago, I wrote that something new is growing in US journalism. It’s still fragile, and hard to define, but I stand by this quote: “I think we’ll look back on 2020 to 2022 as the start of a new journalism movement in the USA.”

This week provided more evidence. A nonprofit trust purchased almost all the leading newspapers and many smaller newspapers in the state of Maine. The newspapers all share the same WordPress-based platform.

Word in Black is powered by WordPress and history

I share a lot of details about start-ups here at KinshiPress, but here’s a very different angle on WordPress publishing. Word in Black is a collaborative effort between 10 Black publishers that share a strong and historic legacy. Many of these publishers are over 100 years old!

Thanks for joining us for this fifth issue.

I build WordPress tools for publishers at PublishPress, TaxoPress, MetaSlider, and Logtivity. Here at KinshiPress I write about what I’m seeing with publishers we deal with each day. This newsletter uses the Newsletter Glue plugin. Click here to email me anything, including tips for future issues.
