You could pay $269 to subscribe to the Globe, but I have a better offer

A Facebook friend sent me the latest "limited time offer' the Joplin Globe is employing to bolster its dwindling subscription base.

Check the prices!

$68.94 for four months

$134.98 for seven months

$269.98 for 13 months

And even $20.98 per month that will be automatically renewed.

If you think those are bargain prices, then by all means subscribe.

As you might expect, I have an alternative offer.

If you like reporting that actually includes investigation and commentary based on knowledge instead of commentary offered by some of the occasional Globe guest columnists, you might consider taking a subscription to the Turner Report to help me continue to build on what I have been doing for the last several years, but what many of you have become familiar with during the past two years.

I don't have a 13-month offer, but my subscription price is $30 a year, compared to $269.98 for 13 months.

Instead of $20.98 per month, my subscriptions are $3 per month.

A $1 weekly subscription rate is also available. And for those who do not want to subscribe, but would like to donate, you can do so through the donation button at the bottom of this post.

If you like what you have been reading on the Turner Report/Inside Joplin/Inside Joplin Obituaries/ sites please consider subscribing or donating.

Those who do not want to use PayPal or pay by credit card can mail their money to me at 2306 E. 8th, Apt. G, Joplin, MO 64801.

Thanks for your consideration.

I wouldn't pay $270 for the Globe if the subscription was for the rest of my life and willable to my heirs. Heck, I won't even take the free ones they try to give away at Walmart.

Hah I hear ya! The freebies that are left in my driveway go straight to the recycling pile.

Why would anyone pay for your blog when you post everything now for free?

Because we want to continue to see truth in reporting instead of propaganda.

It's a new version of an older model of doing things like this, patronage; the Internet allows us to do it in a crowdfunding style. There's even a new company for doing this, I imagine for people who aren't used to the nuts and bolts of it like Randy is, and are willing to give someone a cut for handling it: Patreon.
