October Membership Drive…

…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.

That’s why every October I have a campaign to invite more people to become Donor Subscribers.

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.

I’m also asking existing Donor Subscribers who registered at the first rate of $8.95 and $4.95 to update their subscription. 

There are now five 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. Partnership Plus at $24.95 a month
  5. Partnership Positive at $49.95 a month

New Donor Subscribers, check the details below then choose what level you would like to join and sign up.

If you are already a Donor Subscriber and would like to update, just send me an email at dlongenecker1@gmail.com asking to cancel so you can update. I’ll cancel your existing subscription then all you have to do is register again at the higher rate. 

If you join or upgrade to the Premier level (or higher) you can choose any one of my books as a free gift. After you register, shop at my bookstore on the website, then shoot me an email and let me know which book you would like to receive.

If you are a new podcast subscriber I’ll send you a free copy of my book More Christianity. Once you’ve signed up shoot me an email to request your free copy.

I’ll put it in the mail to you with a big “Thank You!”
