#TWiC: Week of 1.3-1.7
#TWiC focuses on the content of the week across multiple platforms
EDITOR’S NOTE: You may have noticed that we’re changing formats in the new year. It’s true. While stories like #TWiC, #AskBW, Sporcle Quizzes and even Flashback Friday will remain free — as will podcasts — all analysis pieces will be held behind a paywall for the first 48 hours before being released free.
For one, I’d like to make a little money off the site to keep things moving smoothly. Secondly, this gives people a reason to subscribe to the site in the first place.
For those who have subscribed already, thank you! For those considering it, I would love it if you’d subscribe. If you can’t or are unwilling to, I understand that as well.
Happy New Year,
Hello again! Welcome back to our weekly feature called #TWiC — This Week in Content.
Basically, we’ll use this space to share things not only created during the work week, but enjoyed as well. If you wish to submit something to the list — something you’ve created or simply enjoyed — please email brandon.r.warne-at-gmail-dot-com or find me on Twitter @Brandon_Warne or @AccessTwins.
Make sure to check back during the week as the list evolves!
