Oh hey, didn’t see you there. We have an announcement to make.
We rolled out the first part of our contribution program earlier this month, but now we would like to add a component to it. If you sign up below at the Black, Orange or Yearly level (just click on one of the logos to sign up), you can view the site ad-free on both your phone and computer. Pretty cool, right?
Here is our yearly option for $100 (please note that this also renews annually unless you cancel).
Rewards (for now)
- White/Gray: The joy of supporting a site built by you and for you.
- Black/Orange/Annual: Ad-free browsing.
We still plan on adding to these rewards in the near future, but for now ad-free browsing will be given to those who sign up at the Black, Orange or Annual levels. If you already signed up, you just have to make you’re signed in (see FAQs at the bottom).
If you are able to contribute to PFB in any way, we encourage it. This is part of a trend that seems to be catching on (and this is a great thing!) A Boston-based site launched a paid model today, and Stewart Mandel announced that he and Seth Davis are going to be part of a group that is launching something similar on a national level.
The difference between PFB and those sites, though, is that the site will always be free for all. We are just going to continue to reward those of you who are able to contribute with more stuff in the future.
We are inching closer to our pre-football season goal of 250 contributors. We are at ~150 right now depending on when you are reading this post which is pretty amazing. Your contributions have already allowed us to bring on an additional writer, and we have much more to come in the future. Thank you as always for your support of Pistols Firing.
