This post is a shameless but sincere appeal for support. If you would like to support my work, consider subscribing to my SubscribeStar page. Your subscription of $1/month or more grants you access to exclusive content every Saturday, including annual #MAGAWeek posts during the July Fourth week.

If you’ve received any value from my scribblings, I would very much appreciate your support. Belts are tightening with the rise of The Virus, so independent creators need your support now more than ever. Thank you to those of you who are current subscribers. If you’ve enjoyed your subscription, please share this post or my SubscribeStar page with other interested readers.
A little over six months ago, I wrote a “Monday Morning Appeal,” asking readers to pitch in a buck or two to help with the site. As of this morning, I’m up to six subscribers to my SubscribeStar page, four at $1/month the level, and two at $5/month the level.
The blog is entering its sixty-fifth week of daily posts (I believe this morning’s appeal will mark the 456th consecutive daily entry). I’m hoping to continue to with that daily pace, and to increase the amount of exclusive content on my SubscribeStar page.
As my school has transitioned to distance learning, I’m churning out video lectures at an astonishing rate. I will soon begin uploading lectures of interest for $5/month subscribers. That will include my survey-style overview of the Second World War, which includes five lectures and nearly three hours of content. I also have two lectures on the New Deal.
The value of your subscription increases each week, as more content gets added. This transition has also forced me to figure out how to record video and audio more efficiently, so the long-planned, never-delivered Portly Podcast could be in the works soon.
We may be looking at tough times ahead, and every dollar counts. I appreciate every subscriber. For the price of a large pizza over the course of a year ($12), you can support my work with $1/month. Buy one fewer Cokes at the gas station each month, and you’re covered!
For the price of a synthetic oil change ($60), you can support the blog with $5/month. Drop one visit to the People’s Republic of Starbucks and every month, and you can support quality content from a true American patriot.
If you’re feeling really generous, you can subscribe at the $10/month level, or the truly ludicrous $50/month level. At this point, I’m still dreaming up perks for those levels, but if you’re just looking to be super generous, hey, I’ll take it.
Again, thank you to all of my readers, subscribers and non-subscribers alike, for your support. Your comments and feedback are always welcome. Keep sharing my stuff!
