... I am a reader-funded writer. I am editor & contributing writer of 3 amazing publications. Do subscribe to keep my publications advert free. I make 0% in advertising income. And, to keep that probably a few dollars per month should be enough to keep going, for now.
— ArthaMoney — Personal Finance,
— Why Rusty? Spark! — Startups & Entrepreneurship, and
— Madras Realty — Architecture & Realty
Here are the publications's costs:
— Hosting CDN in 17 countries. Yet, we need a robust enough hosting plan to support spikes in traffic we ever get so we don't crash during those moments and ruin our reader's happiness.
— Mailing lists The service we use to email posts out to the subscription list. This fee grows as the email list grows.
— Ongoing web development It is a website, so there are always upsetting glitches coming out of nowhere and occasionally, we add a new site features. Social post "boosts" When we announce a new post on Facebook, this makes sure that the announcement gets onto our News Feeds, and get more engagements.
— Employees We pay few $ towards hiring temporary copywriters to handle things like translation or redistribution requests, spam comment deletion, upkeep, service, and a bunch of other little jobs. These things end up adding up to a few hours every day. I am still working towards making a sustainable living as a writer.
