I want this site to be free forever. No paywalls. No bullshit. Just toasty pixels for as long as I can afford them.
Why? Because I'm writing the site that I needed a decade ago... precisely when I was a year's salary in debt. (Depression can do that pretty quickly.)
Good websites cost a lot to run. They're expensive in opportunity costs and they're expensive in real costs too (e.g. I pay per email sent). So if you enjoy your time here, I hope you'll become a member for a few pennies a day.
You'll get some nice extras—live Q&As, happy hours, a private forum, etc.—and you'll keep the lights on for us all.
Not the sort to color within the lines? Tell me what you'd like to pay and I'll take care of it. Stock options and waffle recipes also accepted.
