After seeing their story yesterday, https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2019/06/06/crikey-kangaroo-on-the-loose-in-south-mississippi-mississippi-business-journal, original link – https://msbusiness.com/2019/06/crikey-kangaroo-on-the-loose-in-south-mississippi/, I chose the Mississippi Business Journal as my Featured Blogger of the Week June 7, 2019.
One of the many things I appreciate about Mississippi Business Journal is the fact they don’t put their stuff behind a paywall. There are plenty of publications who have gone behind the paywall, or only allow you a limited number of free views. They include the below on their articles, smaller than I have it here:
BEFORE YOU GO…
… we’d like to ask for your support. More people are reading the Mississippi Business Journal than ever before, but advertising revenues for all conventional media are falling fast. Unlike many, we do not use a pay wall, because we want to continue providing Mississippi’s most comprehensive business news each and every day. But that takes time, money and hard work. We do it because it is important to us … and equally important to you, if you value the flow of trustworthy news and information which have always kept America strong and free for more than 200 years.
If those who read our content will help fund it, we can continue to bring you the very best in news and information. Please consider joining us as a valued member, or if you prefer, make a one-time contribution.
They offer monthly subscriptions ($8.35/month) or one-time contributions. They also offer sponsorships and custom publishing packages.
Another thing I like is they include, at the top and bottom of their pages, links to their other social media outlets:
- RSS feed,
- Google+ (may not be active if they didn’t upgrade it),
- Facebook – www.facebook.com/mbjournal,
- Twitter – https://twitter.com/mbjournal,
- Linkedin – https://www.linkedin.com/in/mbjournal (may not be active as I get an error when I click on it), https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-mississippi-business-journal-inc. does work
- YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdsXj3AWEs4CYEUGClgukFA.
It’s something I wish most bloggers would do the same.
