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, new video material and most of the podcasts are free.

However, while the blog posts, videos and podcasts are free to enjoy they are not free to produce. There are costs associated with hosting, web design, maintenance, software license fees, video production, 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 and a couple of tech guys who help out when they can.
