Good morning everyone.
I sincerely hope that you are enjoying this newsletter. It has been a joy to share with you every day. And there is part of me that would do this for free because of the joy it gives.
There is another part of me, however. And that part is continuing to heal and grow and become the person I hope to be. And that means knowing that what I do has value. That *I* have value. It means being willing to honor my labor and my time.
That means asking people to spend money. And I am actually really uncomfortable with that. I am the guy who dreads the annual pledge drive on NPR every year. And. I also want to respect myself and the work that I do.
This newsletter is a labor of love. But it is labor. I work hard every day to produce content that you will enjoy, and that will make a difference in your life.
If you have enjoyed this newsletter, I would like to ask you to please consider becoming a subscriber. If you currently only get the weekly email, I hope you will sign up for the daily update by becoming a subscriber.
If you are currently getting the daily emails, but haven’t yet become a paid subscriber, then just reply to this email and let me know you want to change you status. I can help you get set up.
If you are currently a paid subscriber, then I would like to ask you to consider giving the gift of a subscription to someone who you think would like the newsletter.
I know that this time is unsettled and challenging. If you are unable to subscribe at this time, I understand. But if you can, it would mean a lot to me.
To sweeten the pot, I am offering a Christmas special. Just click the button at the beginning or end of this email to sign up for a subscription.
Thank you all for reading. And thank you for considering taking advantage of this special offer: 20% off an annual subscription. Forever. That’s $40 a year. .77c a week. I know I am biased because I write it, but I think that’s a pretty amazing deal.
Thanks y’all. For everything.
