One of the most exciting developments in the publishing world has been the democratization of media. According to WordPress, users produce around 64.3 million new posts and 42.9 million new comments each month. This content is consumed by 409+ million people who view more than 22.7 billion pages each month. While WordPress is one of the biggest blogging platforms, it's clearly not the only one. Today, anyone with access to the Internet can create, share and publish their work. Regardless of geographic location, writers can connect with others who share the same passions and interests. It's an exciting time. The downside is, with greater access comes greater competition. It's harder in today's world to break through the noise to find your audience, to connect with the right readers. The immediacy of online posts "dates" content in the minds of readers. Yesterday's post is no longer relevant. That's an idea we simply don't subscribe to. Packaging, developing and publishing online content into an easy-to-archive book format allows great writers to gain a wider audience with content that lives on forever.
Every day, we can access millions of articles written by experts that inspire, inform and educate us. And yes, even cat videos have their place in helping us unwind and put our lives into perspective. Digital content allows us to further our quest for knowledge with the push of a button, it enables us to challenge our preconceived notions of the world and connect with others. While it's never been easier, it's also never been this overwhelming. There are millions of sites, millions of articles you'd like to read but one thing that has not changed, is the number of hours in the day. Our publications bring together the best content, from the most engaging writers for you to own, read, re-read and share. It's inspiration at your fingertips.
