…Why be a Donor-Subscriber?

The main reason for my blog-website is to communicate the Catholic faith in an entertaining, positive and thought provoking way free of charge to as many people as possible.

Therefore, all new blog posts and most of the podcasts are free.

However, while the blog posts and podcasts are free they are not free to produce. There are costs associated with hosting, web design, maintenance, software license fees, promotion, editing and more.

Some of the folks who are evangelizing online have large organizations with paid staff all supported by foundations and directors with deep pockets.

I don’t have a foundation, major donors and a paid staff of editors, writers and marketing guys.

It’s just like it was when I started blogging twelve years ago.

Just me and my laptop.

Lots of my readers are in the developing world and can’t afford a subscription. Therefore the Blog Website is paid for by the readers and listeners who can afford a monthly subscription.

They help get the word out to those who aren’t so well off.

Other websites cover their costs with advertising.

But I really don’t want my blog-website cluttered up with annoying ads for the Book of Mormon, men’s underwear and junky websites tempting you to see what your favorite character from Petticoat Junction looks like now…

…I know you get fed up with all that endlessly annoying advertising too.

So if you agree with my vision for the blog, I invite you to support the work as a Donor Subscriber.

There are now seven levels of Donor Subscriber with unique benefits, special offers and opportunities.

  1. Podcast at $5.95 a month
  2. Premier at $10.95 a month
  3. Partnership at $14.95 a month
  4. Promotion at $19.95 a month
  5. Partnership Plus at $24.95 a month
