The Irish blues singer Rory Gallagher... the last Star Wars movie... the discovery of pulsars... the Dean of York Cathedral... and Pope Francis. That pretty much summarizes my diary for August. Oh, you want to hear more, you say?
But first, our stats: As of today, we have 139 paid subscribers... that's only one more than last month. On the other hand, there are 9051 people who get notified of new postings, a jump of nearly 200 compared to last month. We continue to grow, but not nearly fast enough to keep us in business. We pay our writers (a pittance, but still it's something) and the web site and its support does not come for free.
Please tell more people about our site. And if you can, please subscribe at a rate of $10 a month (that's two visits to Subway for me) or $100 per year. And tell your friends about the site. If we could double the size of the readership, would we double the number of supporters? I'd rather have a thousand people giving us $10 a month than relying on one person giving us ten thousand a month (though I wouldn't turn that down, either!) We want to give you the Sacred Space Site that you like, but how can we do that if we don't hear from you?
Now, on to the story telling. Most of August I was in Ireland...
