To My Few Remaining Recurring Donors

Posted by Thomas Gideon on 3 October 2014

As you might guess from my recent posts, I am doing some stock taking and house keeping, both in my life and on the site. I just cancelled the three remaining recurring donations initiated when the podcast in particular was much more regular and frequent. One of those donors sent me a note, confused, so I am sharing my thought process here for anyone else who is curious.

I guess I don't feel that two podcast episodes in 2014 and three in the last twelve months is not the same value on offer as earlier in the podcast when I was producing episodes more regularly.

I am trying to get better at writing but not with any expectation of support or reward. It is early days in that renewed effort for me to feel that my efforts deserve any sort of financial support. And the site and podcast have never been about the financial support, anyway.

I really do appreciate the support I have received from my readers and listeners over the years, whether that has been through just following along or sending in something more tangible like a bit of feedback or a donation.

If anyone wants to restart their PayPal subscription, I won't cancel it again without reaching out. In retrospect I should have asked first. If you'd rather leave it canceled and send that on to another project you'd like to support, that would be fine with me too.
