Most of my content (blogposts, video, podcast, etc.) is free. However, for people who are really into this whole thing, I offer a subscription service that: 1) Helps me live (nice!) and 2) Gives you a lot of stuff (cool!).
Here’s the deal: On Ko-fi and Substack, you can purchase either a monthly subscription or a (discounted) annual subscription. It is $7/mo for monthly, $72 for a year. Getting a sub from Ko-fi versus one from Substack cost exactly the same and offer the exact same features: it is purely a matter of preference from which website you choose to buy from.
The following features are included. Take in mind I’m always trying to add stuff, and so this list will grow over time:
- Books. I am primarily known for writing, and I have written quite a few books. Usually these books go for around 5.99 – 9.99, but with a premium sub you get all of them for free.
- Advance posts. Want to see blog posts months before they go live on the site? This feature is for you.
- Knowledge docs. You know Apalla? No? Well, you should. Apalla is my project which compiles the world’s free educational resources in one place. The one premium option at Apalla is Knowledge Docs, which are cheatsheets on a variety of different topics. These go for 7.99 a pop, or $9 a month with an Apalla Sub. With Astukari premium, you get all of them at a discounted price.
Finally, I’ll say that subscriptions are optional. If you want to give a lower amount of money, you can use Ko-fi’s donation feature. If you want something specific, you can buy it directly. If you don’t want to spend money at all, don’t do it! In [Current Year] everybody’s gotta find some way to live, and this is my chosen method of living. And, of course, the blog and newsletter will always be free 🙂
