Over the years, I have tried different models for funding GSL - from paid subscriptions to advertisement - not always all that successfully. In 2014, GSL adopted a “pay what you can” concept. This is rooted in the principle that your ability to learn from your history shouldn’t depend on how deep your wallet is. Students, seniors, and people of modest means can still access GSL on the computers at their local libraries without paying a cent to me.
But there are costs associated with keeping GSL going - web hosting charges, buying software to improve the services, and most important, being able to compensate GSL’s writers for their hard work. Plus, I need to make some profit from this in order to justify the hours spent away from my “day job” working on GSL business.
If you appreciate what GSL is trying to do, please consider making a financial contribution via our GoFundMe page.
