The Saint Louis Diaries (Part 3 of 3)
Am I sorry? Am I worthy? Am I too late to even try?
This is the last installment of the St. Louis Diaries. Here are parts One and Two. Here is an endorsement of my work from a friend of mine who appears in the St. Louis Diaries. Comments are mine.
I am running a ONE DAY SALE for my 54th birthday, which was yesterday. $54, down from $65.
Speaking of subscriptions, I realize a lot of people used to read this newsletter for free and at the start I had this idea that if I made it free people who could afford it and read it regularly would pay and people for whom paying was a stretch would not. I started paywalling it because someone told me about a writer who paywalls all her stuff, and after I left the full-time job I had that I tried extremely hard to stand but sadly could not, I was like, wow, I should do that. I immediately started and finally, after months of zero movement on the old “paid subs” line, started to see an increase.
I realized that if I kept writing really any of these essays for free, I wouldn’t be able to keep writing them.
I see writers asking readers to subscribe to things and I always kind of resent it. So I am not going to do that. If you want to subscribe, you will!
