Why subscribe?

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.

Free and paid subscribers get exactly the same content. This is important to me, and it’s not planned to change any time soon.

As you probably know, I’m trying to live outside money. But, I did go and do a crazy thing and rescue three little piggies. I keep trying to grow enough food for them, but every time I seem to get close, the go and eat it. And then they grow. Tony is probably about 150 kilos these days! So any paid subscription is basically a donation to their fat tummies. And we are all incredibly grateful.

I hope you think that the content is worth something - if it’s worth your interest, then that makes me happy, tell me from time to time by clicking the heart button or something - but I know that I am not producing actual value for money for 5€ a month. You could buy a good second hand hardback for that, and hardly even getting the title of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Containing a Faithful Account of the Fortunes, Misfortunes, Uprisings, Downfallings, and Complete Career of the Nickleby Family for that. But between us, we’re going to pretend it’s worth a coffee a month, and thank you for joining in the charade with me :)

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

It might end up in your spam folder. I would have a look there, if I were you, and if you’re on gmail, it appears to go to the Promotions folder, and I’ll be darned if there’s anything I can do about it. I’m trying, believe me!
