To reprise: I proposed charging a voluntary subscription fee each quarter so I could start generating income once my USA Today severance checks end later this month.
The breakdown of 318 reader responses so far to the question, I'd pay Jim this much per quarter:
- $0: 44%
- $1: 13%
- $5: 25%
- $10: 16%
So, I'm going to keep this idea on the front burner. While I haven't completely given up on the idea of publishing advertising on this blog, I want to pursue voluntary subscriptions first.
