We are going to launch a paywall. To afford free speech, IWB must be totally reader-funded. – Funding Watch

Thanks for the beneficiant donation final week. Some donated $100–$500. We appreciated it. The whole donation we obtained is sufficient to get me by the month. Nevertheless, it’s not sustainable for a number of folks to help the location with that form of massive donation for the very long time, as they’ll’t do that each month. We resolve to launch a paywall so everybody can pitch in a couple of dollars a month to keep up IWB. The paywall needs to be prepared inside a number of days. As acknowledged in my earlier publish, the present speech censorship operation is led by governments, they work with social media and search engine firms to suppress and censor info and opinion that contradict their narratives. It’s going to worsen as extra advertisers proceed to go away us.

The paywall will seem after the primary 20 free articles, so it received’t have an effect on all the brand new guests or many of the present readers.

The speed needs to be between $1.95 and $8.95 a month. I haven’t selected the speed but. You probably have any concepts about the place I ought to set the speed, let me know.

If we will get IWB solely funded by readers, we will slowly take away all of the adverts and change into actually unbiased. We estimate that 1,500–2000 subscribers could also be ample to fund the location. If there’s further funding, we will rent extra assist to dig up extra attention-grabbing tales.

We aren’t going to achieve our purpose anytime quickly. Within the meantime, in case you can afford to make an extra donation, we’ll recognize it.
