I’ve been writing this blog for nearly ten years – posting, typically, two or three times a week. I’ve kept it as the ‘free’ WordPress site (with advertisements they serve up) because I’ve been putting any money for online presence into my website.
In those almost-ten years I’ve written on everything from writing to the Land Speed Record, physics, politics and history. I’ve poked into dictionaries and discovered some really obscure English words to share. And I’ve made contact with some really wonderful people around the world through the blog. Some of my regular readers, indeed, arrived soon after I started and are still here. Hi, friends!
After a decade, though, I’m wondering about switching to a paid WordPress site, with my own URL. It’d get rid of the WordPress ads – but I’d have to figure a way of recouping the costs. So I’m contemplating a subscription to give readers access to premium content. The blog posts will stay free, of course.
By ‘premium content’ I’m contemplating something totally new – podcasts, among other possibilities. I may as well put my voice training to work. Possibly I could do an e-magazine. And there’s the potential for an email newsletter, wallpaper downloads via my photography, and that sort of thing.
What do you want? What would work for you, my friends? Let me know in the comments.
