We’re just one week from Thanksgiving. I’m thankful to live in a State with enough commonsense and decency not to attempt to trample our right to gather with our loved ones on such an important day. There may be a good bit of uncertainty about the future, but at least we can get together and enjoy some time together (and some turkey, of course).
In casting about for some TBT fodder this week, I came across this blatant sales pitch post from Thanksgiving Week 2019. I haven’t pimped out my scribbled wares lately, and this season of generosity and giving seemed like a great time to urge everyone to dig deep and subscribe to my SubscribeStar page for a buck a month (or five, for that matter).
Last year at this time I had five subscribers and a piddling thirty-five posts. As of the time of this writing, I have 144 posts on the page (which will hopefully be 145 by the time you read this TBT, as I owe subscribers for this past Saturday) and eight subscribers. That includes fifty-three installments of Sunday Doodles, which only $5 subscribers get. The rest are Saturday posts, with a few Five Dollar Friday posts tossed in for you big spenders.
I would love to get that subscriber count into double digits by Christmas. If you’ve been hesitating for any reason, or said, “Oh, I need to do that when I have a minute,” make that minute now. Grab your credit card and swipe that sucker (you actually have to type in the number) and make it happen! Then you, too, can enjoy a bottomless back catalog of my portly musings.
With that, here is a very commercial, cash-grabby look back at “Giving Thanks (and a Sales Pitch)“:
