While on my main profile (where I write longer pieces, not more important) — Jess the Avocado — I am still placing my stories behind a paywall, I don’t see the point of doing it here. Actually, it was probably doing me a disservice.
Were a couple of dollars a month worth not able to reach a wider community of poets and poetry readers? I don’t think so.
Sure, maybe my poetry is still not as enticing for people to want to click on them, but I hope that having them accessible to more of you will help me share my thoughts with more people.
