THE FREE SERVICE THAT SENDS OUT THE GOOD MORNING GLOUCESTER NIGHTLY EMAIL IS SHUTTING DOWN JULY 1.
The daily GMG emails that you have been receiving for over 13 years have been sent out using a free service. As you see above the service that sends out those emails for free is being terminated. A replacement service is going to charge me between $799 and $999 per year.
This is the pricing from Feedblitz, a replacement service for the service that I’ve been using for free since the blog started. This is being discontinued in July (see the notification at the top of this post and the new pricing below).
That’s way too much for me to absorb on top of the blog hosting fees, podcast hosting fees, podcast studio software fees, url registration fees and so on.
I HATE ASKING FOR MONEY. I MEAN I HATE, HATE IT.
I can offer prints through Cape Ann Giclee which if we sell 20 or so I think we’d be covered after I pay for the printing.
I can keep track of how many are purchased and keep people updated on how close we are. Father’s Day is the 20th.
If you order a print and we get to that level I don’t have to run a fundraiser. You’d actually be killing two birds with one stone. You’d get a print for yourself or the dad/s in your life and we can keep putting out the email blast for free.
If you value the work the entire team puts in please consider placing an order for a print. I put over $3000 into producing the podcast in the past two years. Yes I love doing it, and I love supporting our local sports teams, local restaurants, local businesses and countless other causes. But this is an expense I did not anticipate.
Here is a link to my e-commerce shop at Cape Ann Giclee-
I will keep everyone updated as to the sales and promise to keep any sales over the amount needed for this 12 month period to put toward next year’s email distribution subscription fee.
I’m not asking for something for nothing, I just know how important the email blast is to a lot of people. If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll keep this post stickied to the top of the page and keep it updated with the sales.
