29th Street Publishing wants to make selling magazines for iPads as easy as blogging

There was a time when blogging wasn’t easy. Before the days of Tumblr, WordPress, and Blogger, you likely needed to be a coder if you wanted to write online. As Ryan Singer recently put it at Signal vs. Noise, “You had to know databases and webhosts and PHP or Perl. If you were ‘just’ a web designer, or a writer with ideas, you had to hire an in-demand web programmer to make it happen. Publishing was expensive and hard.”

Thanks to people like Ev Williams, the Trotts, and Matt Mullenweg, that barrier fell away
