The Portly Politico
In 2018, I relaunched my blog, The Portly Politico, on WordPress.  In 2019, I posted daily with original, conservative analysis and commentary on politics, culture, and music, and have kept that pace going to the present.  With SubscribeStar, I hope to continue to expand the TPP universe, providing daily content on the blog and exclusive weekly content for subscribers.

For $1 a month, subscribers gain access to exclusive essays every Saturday.

For $5 a month, subscribers also gain access to my whimsical "Sunday Doodles," which features two of my odd, absurd, humorous doodles (along with explanations for those so interested) every Sunday.  Subscribers at this level will also enjoy some additional perks from time to time.

Thank you for your support!

Your succulently fat subscription may very well allow me to retire early. Then we'll both be wearing Hawaiian shirts all day.

Goals

$21 of $50
per month
With $50/month in subscriptions, I'd be able to dedicate more time towards improving the blog, and begin moving towards self-sufficiency. It would also enable more content on SubscribeStar, including podcasts, new music, book previews, short stories, and artwork.
$21 of $250
per month
This goal is roughly equivalent to my monthly tithes payment, depending on how my various side gigs are going. $250 a month will help increase the quantity of content, including exclusive subscriber content, of the blog.
