Congratulations to the Volokh Conspiracy blog, which has joined the Washington Post:
Here are the details on how this will work:
- For the first six months, you can access the blog for free. We negotiated that with the Post, by giving up likely about half of our share of the advertising revenue for that time. (Six months is the longest we could get.)
- Even after the six months, the blog will be outside the paywall for any .edu and .gov readers. If you are an .edu and .gov user, but want to access the blog from home, you will be able to do that just by registering for a free account.
- The first 10 page accesses per month to Washington Post material will be free, so if you’re an occasional reader, you’ll likely be able to read the blog the familiar way.
- Even beyond this, all readers will still be able to read all the posts on the blog via its RSS feed, its Facebook feed (which will be up shortly), and its Twitter feed (click Follow at http://twitter.com/VolokhC) — about 10,000 of you already subscribe to us via Twitter.
