Here’s the thing: Your Tumblr, while clever, will not pay your bills. We want to fix that. So we’ve made the TypePad Journalist Bailout Program. While we can’t promise it’s going to replace having a full-time writing gig, it gets you up and running with your own site that you can start to benefit from.

“Here’s the thing: We keep bleeding customers to these other services that, while clever, do not pay our bills. We want to fix that. So we’ve made the TypePad Bailout Program. While we can’t promise that we’ll be any different from what you’ve fled from or ignored in the past, it will keep us up and running by hosting your site in a way that we can benefit from.”
