I have some exciting, timely news: my SubscribeStar page hit five subscribers yesterday! That’s a huge deal, because SubscribeStar requires their “Stars” to have five subscribers before subscriptions automatically renew on a monthly basis. So, a BIG “Thank You” to my five plucky subscribers.
For those of you interested in subscribing, here’s my Thanksgiving pitch: each Saturday, I post a fresh post for $1/month and up subscribers. It’s an insanely good value—the price of a large specialty pizza per year—and I write some juicy stuff that I can’t put on the main site.
If you want to get generous and go for $5/month, I’ve recently launched “Sunday Doodles.” I throw up a couple of my wacky, absurd, grotesque doodles each Sunday, usually with a brief explanation about when/where I doodled them. Here’s a sample:
The SubscribeStar page includes around thirty-five posts at present, with probably thirty of those being essays. Like this blog, I use that page to write about all kinds of topics, including:
- Working Life as a Teacher
- Politics and Culture
- American History
- President/GEOTUS Trump
…and, of course, candy apples.
Now that I’ve turned giving thanks into a lurid bid for your hard-earned cash, let me close by saying that I am, indeed, truly thankful to all of my readers. Blogging daily this past year has been a challenge at times, but it’s also been a blast. I’m incredibly thankful for those of you who read the site, and for the great new blogosphere buddies I’ve met along the way.
Thank you for your support, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
