If you like The Nooner and don't already, consider a subscription, advertising, or otherwise support the work using Square, PayPal, or check (snail address listed there).

Only 8.3% of the 8,267 readers (adjusted for work/home dupes) are currently paid subscribers. Even a $5 or $10 quick "tip" via Square or Venmo to "Scott-Lay" helps pay the bills during this continued low-advertising 2021. (For Venmo, the last four of my phone is 5801 if asked.)

Renewals of any subscription that expired January 1, 2020 or later or have expirations ahead are being given a 14-month subscription for the regular price of 12 months.

Sorry for the nags and I know it's irritating, but I also know you're seeing them from newspapers and other media properties in your email inbox during the advertising void.

Help with rent, health insurance, the server and other equipment, and newspaper subscriptions by subscribing or donating.

Hopefully this customary ad slot will be filled again soon!
