It’s been more than a decade since C. Max Magee started The Millions, then a modest DIY website hosted on Blogspot. Since then, it’s grown to staff more than 30 writers and editors and reach millions of readers. In a post that reflects on online publishing’s evolution in the context of The Millions, Magee takes stock of the past 15-plus years and all the lessons he learned founding and growing this website. “A reason that The Millions didn’t die way back then,” he writes, “is that, as it evolved, I discovered my strength was not so much as a writer but as an editor, a discoverer and an inspirer of talent and as a publisher, always looking for the next worthwhile partnership, the next revenue stream, the next tweak or optimization that would enable the project to keep growing.” Here’s to the next decade!
