I have been publishing and sending out my e-newsletter, The Mason Missile, since late in 2005, and I am proud of how well people have responded. Every writer needs a platform to show their work.
In my next Missile, I will accept payment for advertisements, to pay for costs; I believe I am worthy of payment for my work, due to my education and the content I put out. (I am still happy to accept donations.) I would be happy to speak to you about payments, to advertise you organization or small business. Thanks.
