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.

Starting 10 November 2019, I began a new series, "Sunday Doodles."  Subscribers at the "Beefy" level ($5) or higher will receive access to these whimsical, grotesque, absurd doodles.

See an example below (drawn recently during church---yikes!):
