THIS BLOG HAS MOVED
This blog has moved to a ( Very Cheap! ) monthly magazine delivered by the post office. Yes, kids, old school media dropped in your mail box, just like it used to be.
I only ask you to pay my cost, not including the equipment. Just the mailing media and postage. $1.08 per issue, but if you are overseas ( any fuzzy foreigner including Canada ) I need $1.78-these will ONLY change as my costs change. I would love it if you added a donation, a tip, a gratuity for my work ( as this is my only retirement income-Social Security is far away if ever ).
I'm doing little more than just stringing the same kind of articles you saw here one after another, creating a PDF document, burning it to a unprinted blank CD-ROM and mailing it to you. It is just a months worth of blog articles, mostly the same length and definitely the same tone, sent at the beginning of the month. It might be slightly less in length, as I might take one day off a week or so, but basically the same near 80+ pages.
Send money order or check ( you could send cash but I'd be very leery about that if I were you-although I'm not sure what other choice foreigners have ) to:
James M Dakin
181 West Bullion Road, Unit 12
Elko Nevada 89801
Please tell me how many issues you want. It does NOT have to be a full years worth. It can be one issue, three, six, whatever. I'll let you know when I've sent the last issue so you can renew. If you do include a gratuity, please specify which amount is for the subscription and which one is my donation.
I won't keep your address on file once you no longer subscribe. I will NOT sell my mailing list. If you would care to correspond, I'd love to hear from you. If you can, include a SASE ( self address stamped envelope ). I think I'm going to be running a very thin shoestring budget here as I lose my Internet readers.
PLEASE, for the love of all that is good and holy, if you can, please PRINT your name and address. If you don't have a printer or one of those mailing labels, PLEASE write VERY neatly, preferably in block print. I need to be able to read your writing to send you anything in the mail.
I'd love to continue having you as a reader, extra paying or not. This is my labor of love. If you must know WHY I'm doing this, going dark, going completely off line, you can read the blog post right before this one ( or, read about it at nauseating detail in the first issue of the magazine ). But I will NEVER stop writing. I just need for you to be patient as I return to a lower tech medium. Stay safe out there, and cheers!
