Hey, friends! I know you just heard from me, but I wanted to pop in really quickly and give you an update. At the end of yesterday’s post about my commitment to the blog and its future, I invited you to join the community of readers who support the site financially with a monthly pledge. And last night, we hit a major milestone.
I’m proud to announce that, thanks to the support of some wonderful people, the blog is now completely self-sustaining!
This means that my family and I are no longer paying out of pocket to make this place a reality. The tools I use to write, publish, and host this blog are now fully funded by its supporters. That’s amazing! And I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you.
Getting the blog to a self-sustaining place is something I’ve dreamed of for a long time. I’ve always hoped that my writing was creating value in the world, but now I have concrete evidence that it’s true. Money isn’t everything, but when something you’ve poured your heart into starts bringing in as much as it takes out, that’s a pretty incredible feeling.
This development not only strengthens my resolve to make this site a priority; it also creates space for me to focus on new ways to make the blog even better, extend its reach, and branch out into new creative spheres. I think that one day, we’ll look back on this day as a turning point in the history of this place. And I couldn’t be more excited!
There’s still room for you on the support team! Keeping the site up and running is great, but your support also makes it possible for me explore ways to expand the blog and make it all it can possibly be. This project has always been my favorite “side hustle,” and the more support it receives, the more time I’m able to commit to it rather than to other projects.
If you’re interested in taking the next step in supporting the work I do here, check out the campaign and consider getting started with a monthly pledge of any amount. You’ll become part of a community that’s ensuring this blog reaches its fullest potential, and you’ll get in on some nice perks, too.
Thank you to everyone who has helped the blog get to this point, especially to my supporters, but also to anyone who’s ever taken the time to read an article on here. I wish I could express to you how much this place means to me. I am so grateful that you’re a part of it.
Exciting things are ahead, friends! So stick around, and we’ll get there together. I’ll talk to you again very soon!
