As we discussed last time, Patheos is making the Cranach blog “premium content,” to be available by subscription. This will begin next Monday, April 4.
You can go to the home page as usual. You can see what the posts are about, with the title and a short summary. That won’t cost anything. When you click “read more” to actually read the post, a pop-up will appear, inviting you to subscribe. (If you have a pop-up blocker, you’ll need to disable it temporarily for this.)
The cost will be $5 per month. If you throw in another $1.99, you can get not only the Cranach blog but all of the other vast array of Patheos sites ad free. (You can quit at any time, though you’ll still get the whole month that you have paid for. Also, we will customize the “nanny-bot” so that it will no longer censor your comments for innocent words.)
