STL has had a great start over the last two years and an enthusiastic community has developed around the blog and the email newsletter, Fired Up Friday.  I have created nearly 100 posts and produced more than 60 newsletters with the help of my contributors.  STL has become my certified “side hustle” and I know two things now:

1) I want STL to go on for a long time.  

2) I need to make STL self-sustaining for this to work.  

After doing a lot of thinking, I believe the best way to do this, while keeping the integrity of the blog, is to accept donations from loyal readers who wish to see STL continue.  

How to Donate

Starting now STL will be open to receiving donations in two ways.  First, you can do a “one-time” donation by clicking on the “Donate” button below. The second, and preferred, method is to become a Patreon supporter.

The way Patreon works is a reader can donate whatever they want per month and the donation is recurring each month after that. So anything, from $3/month up, is hugely helpful to the cause.
