The continued rise of ad blockers means we are forced to adapt our ways. Starting this week our premium subscription service will change to better support our efforts.
The decline of online advertising and the rise of ad blockers means the constant costs associated with independent journalism becomes increasingly difficult to carry. This results in less news being reported and less feature articles being published. Those who have been with us for the past eight years will have noticed a sharp decline in our reporting in the last several weeks due to our limited budget.
Starting December 13, 2019, we will be rolling out metered access to all existing and upcoming articles. Readers who do not wish to support us with a premium subscription will still be able to read five articles per month, excluding orange labeled premium articles. Unrestricted access is available for our subscribers along with several other benefits, such as sharing premium articles with friends and browsing without ads.
