Winter Fundraising Day 2!

"Blogging" is making a return on hybrid email list/blog sites like substack. Good for whatever works for people, but blogging behind paywalls isn't really blogging. I don't fault people for having paywalls - whatever works/pays the bills! - but it's just another example of the "open internet" not making a comeback.

The ad supported internet had its problems (the internet is still ad supported, just google and facebook ate it all), and major sites which made themselves unreadable with all of the badly behaved ads helped to hasten its demise, but at least you could link to things! You can read this sucky blog for free! Or chip in. Up to you!

If you don't like paypal, there's also Patreon:
