I wrote about the Scribd Store and why it could be good for bloggers back in May. Well, that got even more weight today, as AP reports on publisher Simon & Schuster making titles available, and Hachette Book Group might join too.
Good news, because this means that more will turn to the Scribd Store, which in turn makes it easier for bloggers to benefit. We might very well see blog content branch out in the years to come, as spinoff products, not just repackaged for another platform and charged for. That’s as stupid as online newspaper paywalls.
