Activating paid subscriptions
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yes, it’s a belated one, but I’ve been enjoying some downtime with family during our extended winter break. I hope your holidays went swimmingly well and you made it through unscathed.
Before I get rolling again on my regular schedule, I wanted to make a little announcement…
I just activated paid subscriptions!!
If you REALLY like my work here and you want to go deeper into it while supporting my ministry, you can become a paid subscriber. Why might you want to become a paid subscriber?
Well, mostly because it’s pretty great to pay writers and artists for their work. We’re so used to getting most everything we want on the internet for free that it’s easy to forget that it’s real human beings who work hard to create the stuff we love. It’s good to pay for the good stuff out there because it helps that good stuff continue.
We pay for magazine subscriptions, streaming subscriptions, movie tickets, meals at restaurants, and more — why wouldn’t we pay for the independent writers, artists, theologians, and makers as well? It’s a real way that we can vote with our dollars for more goodness in the world. Let’s counteract the dumpster-fire drama and gnashing of teeth with things that actually add to our lives.
Okay, now that THAT’S out of the way…
Here are a couple of things I want you to know right off the bat…
If you’re a Patreon supporter at any level, you’ve already been given full access as a paid subscriber to this newsletter.
My daily-ish posts will remain free forever (!!). If that’s good enough for you, there’s no need to do a thing and you’ll keep getting those in your handy dandy email inbox.
But if you want to go deeper into my work while supporting my ministry, you can become a paid subscriber (below).
With a paid subscription, you’ll be supporting my ministry in a big way. In turn, you’ll get access to several goodies such as…
Comments so you can connect with me and other readers.
Reader threads that you can respond to and dialogue on with others.
My soon-to-be-releasing paid subscriber-only podcast and voice memos.
Upcoming book studies.
Priority access to seasonal Q+A’s.
Discounts on in-person events and retreats I’m planning.
Other goodies and specialized content that I dream up along the way.
The pricing structure to become a paid subscriber is easy…
$7 per month (if you pay monthly)
Or $50/year (if you pay annually)
Or become a ‘Big-Time Supporeter’ by contributing over $50 per year (you choose the price).
If you can’t quite swing the price…
If you want access to all paid subscriber goodies but you just can’t swing the price of a paid subscription, no worries. Just email me at email@example.com and let me know that you’d like access but things are tight. I’ll comp you full access, no questions asked.
Thanks so much for being on the other end of this email. I hope you get some encouragement and peace from the things that I make. I’m grateful for you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reply to this email and let me know. And I hope you’ll join me in going deeper into this work.
To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
