Teen Vogue
Between a lack of funding, declining job markets, and often our parents' insistence on pursuing the likes of law, science, and medicine, creative industries have long been considered risky career paths.

Starting today, any podcaster, regardless of audience size or experience level, can collect recurring monthly payments directly from their listeners. There’s never been an easier way to start generating revenue from your podcast.

The Verge
Anchor's app makes it really easy to throw together a podcast. But if you keep doing that and manage to build an audience, there hasn't been an easy way to get paid for it. Now Anchor is launching an option: a feature called Listener Support that allows listeners to pledge $1, $5, or $10 per month to specific podcasts.
Macstories
As an app and service, Anchor is a compelling product that I'm personally a big fan of. It's the best way to podcast from an iPad, the most mature and accessible platform for new podcasters, and it includes innovative features like transcribed video generation for sharing clips on social media.

The Next Web
Flattr, the micropayments service launched by Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde and acquired in April by AdBlock Plus owner Eyeo, has been relaunched, and now lets users pay content creators automatically, without any manual involvement.

Eyeo, the German firm infuriating publishers with its hugely popular Adblock Plus tool, will try to win over those same publishers with today's relaunch of Flattr, the micropayments service it acquired earlier this year. Flattr was founded in 2010 by Peter Sunde, who also co-founded The Pirate Bay, and Linus Olsson.

Medium
Whenever I look at used items sold on Facebook Marketplace or eBay, I'm horrified to see how awful the majority of the item pictures are. When doing my own moving out sale, I spent a lot of time on the pictures used to promote the items. Something that I believe contributed in a very high degree to the success of the sale.
Medium
I never realised how many things I owned until I decided to leave Berlin. I was sitting in an apartment full of stuff I needed to get rid of in one way or another. Furniture, appliances, tools, kitchenware, books, you name it. I started to look around for ways to get everything sold.
