It’s March, and we’re celebrating On Pasture’s second birthday. We’re also having a “Membership March” for the very simple reason that there really is no such thing as a free lunch. Here’s why your support is so important:

On Pasture Business PlanOn Pasture is not supported by any grants or government funding. 

We rely on advertisers, underwriters and our On Pasture readers to cover our costs. Our business plan? Write great stuff that makes a difference to readers’ lives, include great authors who have experience or have done research that will improve readers’ lives, and then, when readers, advertisers and underwriters see that they’re always going to get great stuff, they’ll send monetary support our way.

Yes, it is a little like standing on the corner with a sign (a well-written sign) that says “Will work for food.”

Getting the readers hasn’t been a problem. We’re averaging about 40,000+ readers a month right now. We’re also tickled with our growing list of underwriters. Thank them for helping get great articles to you by just clicking over and seeing who they are. Now that advertisers see that you’re reading, they’re sharing their products and services with you too. You can see them in our classifieds and in the right side bar. Help us thank them by checking out what they have to offer.

But here’s the nitty gritty for us as editors and writers and you as weekly readers. We need your support, not just in clicks, but in actual dollars, so that we can keep on going.

We’re not asking for a lot because we know how life can be. It’s just the same for us as it is for you. In fact that’s exactly why we have the business plan we have. Everyone needs great information, but not everyone can always pay for it. We’re a Community, the On Pasture Community, and we support each other in good times and in bad.

If you like what we’re doing, if your Tuesday morning (or your whole week!) would be a little emptier without this Community, then help us keep it going by sending a token of your appreciation. Help us celebrate our birthday by choosing the kind of support that works for you. And be sure to include your address so we can send you a bumper sticker so that you can show everyone you’re a member of the On Pasture Community.

Thanks for reading!

Kathy and Rachel
