Your support makes a difference!First let me say how much I have appreciated you joining us on this journey. It is hard to believe that we have been in operation for 3 and a half years already! We started in January of 2017 and are still going strong. Every week, our readership has increased as has interest in our work. We have kept this blog free (including ad free) because we believe that the views and analysis that we share are a public service. At the same time, for each publication, we often spend hours in both the research and writing process.
Your support would help us to continue to bring you high quality content and would help us to solicit more input from other contributors, especially young and up and coming contributors. To that end, please consider a one- time donation or monthly support. Thanks in advance for what you may be able to do.
With warm regards, Anne B.
