I’m back from an unexpectedly long hiatus only to be forced to ask for support again this month to keep Openhearted Rebellion running. You may recall from my previous posts that I said I would need to make these appeals once a month to drum up the income we need.
The time has again come for me to ask anyone who enjoys this blog to donate or subscribe so I can continue to focus on building it.
My plans for the blog, which admittedly did not materialize this month due to the hiatus, include posting new, original articles on a consistent basis as well as featuring more work from contributing authors. I’ll also be working on side projects that include a possible reworking of the Karma Yoga Daily podcast.
More on that another time.
After my last appeal, we received just enough support to make it through another month. The contributions and new subscriptions not only let us stay above water, but once again showed me how many of you care about this space.
I live in an area with a lot of people who aren’t as open to the ideas discussed here. Sometimes, writing about it by myself can get lonely. I often forget there are so many others who believe in these ideas enough to support the growth of a digital space in which they can be freely expressed and expanded upon.
Since I wrote last month’s appeal, we gratefully received the support we needed but were also hit with some difficult setbacks. Unfortunately, for now, I have no option but to keep writing these appeals every month. The strain of trying to pay bills on a low income is too much, even though to me, the stress is worth it.
Since I was able to take some time this month to spend with family and recharge, I’m more than ready to get back to writing. Along with the side projects, I plan to churn out continuous articles to assure our readers that this blog is worth supporting.
Generally, the less I can stress about keeping the lights on, the more time and energy I can put into creating a body of work that will leave no doubt in our readers that supporting us is the right choice. I believe this blog can become much bigger and make a real difference in the world, but for now, it can’t survive without your help.
I’m willing to do the work. The rest is up to the Universe and any readers who can help. If the day comes when our readers can no longer help or no longer feel we are worthy of support, then I’ll accept it and retreat into the working world.
Until then, I’ll do whatever I can to keep Openhearted Rebellion afloat – even if it means coming to you every month in hopes that you can help. If you believe in this blog’s potential and don’t mind helping get it off the ground, please support us this month with a subscription or a one-time contribution.
I say this every time, but any and all support will mean the world to us.
How You Can Help
If you’re able to support us, there are a few ways you can do so.
One is by sending a donation/contribution to us directly via PayPal. My PayPal email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any amount will help right now.
If you want to support us on a consistent, long-term basis, you can subscribe to Openhearted Rebellion for $5, $8, or $11.11 a month.
To subscribe means simply to support the blog with one contribution a month through PayPal (credit and debit are accepted). With the $11.11 subscription, you’ll receive the Weekly Awareness Guide – a document with an exclusive article and other segments sent to your inbox each week.
You can also purchase Enlightened Afterlife, an eBook about Spiritualism I wrote to give readers a way to support the blog while I share information about all these topics that fascinate me. You can purchase below via PayPal or head here to get it on Kindle.
Lastly, you can support us via our Patreon page. Head here for information on how to join one of the support tiers. We haven’t had any supporters over there yet, but I’ll soon be lowering the price of the tiers to encourage more readers to sign up.
I look forward to a time when these appeals are unnecessary, but I can’t thank enough those of you who’ve supported us through the years. I have so much love for those of you who’ve been here through all the blog name changes, hiatuses, and lengthy posts detailing how much I was struggling.
I never knew compassion until I became a part of this community. If you can give once again, then I plan to give back in abundance.
Thanks, and much love.
Wes Annac & Family =)
