Why be a Donor-Subscriber?

Readers have asked, “Can I still read your blog and listen to podcasts for free?”

The answer is “Yes!”. All new blog posts will be free here on the main blog site, and most of the new podcasts are free.

However, there some extra elements on the site that are reserved for Donor-Subscribers, and you can check out those features below.

Your subscription-donation helps me keep the blog free from annoying ads. It helps pay for the costs of design, development, hosting and promotion of this website, and helps the Longenecker family budget. It also helps keep the main blog and podcasts available for those who really can’t afford to subscribe.

The Premium Subscription rate is just $8.95 per month. That’s less than $2.25 per week.

The new Podcast Donor Subscription level is $4.95 per month. For less than $1.25 a week you can listen to all the archived podcasts and lot of new ones that are reserved for Donor Subscribers. Check out the details of all the benefits below.

When you look at it that way, it’s not asking much is it?
