I understand that you should be paid for your work. So should Bari Weiss, Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Andrew Sullivan, and dozens, if not hundreds, of other writers. But think of the reader. It would be expensive for me to pay $5/mo or $50/year for each of the several writers I like to read. I would love to see some sort of subscription deal at Substack that would let a reader pay, say, $15/mo or $150/year to read x articles from Substack authors. Kinda like the old days, when you could read a whole lot of good stuff by subscribing to two or three magazines.

Why did I become a paid subscriber? Resistance was futile!

“Of all the inanimate objects, of all men's creations, books are the nearest to us for they contain our very thoughts, our ambitions, our indignations, our illusions, our fidelity to the truth, and our persistent leanings to error. But most of all they resemble us in their precious hold on life.”

― Joseph Conrad

Wishing you all the best. As a reader from the third world, however, I'm afraid I will no longer have access to your emails, every single one of which I've read from start to finish for the past couple of years, which makes me quite sad honestly. I guess it can't be helped unfortunately. Best of luck on your future endeavors.

Hey Micah, is the founding member 300/year every year or just the first year?
