6th Anniversary Of PP Blog!

Dear Readers,

The sixth anniversary of the PP Blog passed in the run-up to Christmas last month. I decided to wait until the first of the year to publish a subscription post that commemorates the sixth anniversary.

As was the case with our 2,500th-post commemoration two months ago, there are four subscription options. In the spirit of that post, I’m returning to the “penny a post” theme. We’re asking readers who believe in what this Blog is doing to take out a one-year subscription for either $25, $50, $75 or $100.

The $25 fee constitutes a penny a post for our current editorial well of 2,500+ articles. There’s a pull-down menu in case you decide you’d like personally to value the editorial well at 2 cents a post ($50), 3 cents a post ($75) or 4 cents a post ($100).

There is no paywall at the PP Blog. By purchasing a subscription that automatically renews in one year, you’ll be helping me personally. And, as I noted in November, you’ll be helping a Blog that publishes an average of 416 stories a year and keeps matters important to readers a bookmark away remain free for other readers.

This “penny-a-post” idea has helped me scotch the very real concern about affecting readership. The readers who subscribe will be helping keep the Blog free for those who cannot afford to subscribe and for those who simply choose not to.

My sincere thank you for your continued interest in the PP Blog.

Patrick

  1. “UncleFesta” seems to be offering me hearty congratulations for the PP Blog’s sixth anniversary and also appears to be expressing his sympathy that I’ve contracted the flu. (As noted in another thread yesterday.)

    Thank you, UncleFesta, one of my readers of the longest term. I’ve never lost hope that the greater angels of your nature would prevail.

    P.S. I have to allow for the possibility that my flu has caused me to see a thoughtful bouquet when what actually was intended was a plunging, twisting dagger to the heart.

  2. It’s good to hear that Eddie is still around. I half expected him to have been ‘got’ by the Aussie Mafia by now, from all the threats that have been slung over the years. Perhaps the Aussie Mafia eventually got cold feet?
    Happy Burns Night, Eddie.

    Patrick, I once had some Benylin+Actifed. I had a good conversation with my shoes then fell asleep. Felt weird for a few days but had clear sinuses.

    That must have been one helluva soleful conversation, Tony.

    Thanks for the tip. Had I known getting my shoes to answer me was a simple as Benylin+Actifed, I’d have tried it years ago!

    Don’t want to get the flu again. But if I do, I’ll switch to Benylin+Actifed. Soleful conservations with my shoes would be a dream realized!

  4. Patrick, I know you are interested in stories about publishing & news papers. I suspect this is also being reported in the US.

    Charlie Hebdo magazine shooting: what we know so far

    The attack has prompted swift and widespread international condemnation. US President Barack Obama said the attack was “cowardly, evil” and pledged the support of the United States. German chancellor Angela Merkel and British prime minister David Cameron, who were meeting in London, called Hollande to offer the cooperation of their intelligence services. The UN Security Council issued a statement condemning the “barbaric and cowardly terrorist attack.”

    From another story:

    Saudi Arabia called it a “cowardly terrorist attack that was rejected by the true Islamic religion”. The Arab League and Egypt’s al-Azhar university – the leading theological institution in the Sunni Muslim world – also denounced the incident in which masked gunmen shouted “Allahu Akbar” – “god is great ” in Arabic.

    Iran, Jordan, Bahrain, Morocco, Algeria and Qatar all issued similar statements.
