***UPDATED on 5/7 WITH NEW NUMBERS****
This year has started off a bit rocky for our print publication.
Our print and shipping costs are raising pretty dramatically.
If this all happened five years ago, this post might be about The Climbing Zine up for sale to some major corporation. At this point though this thing is too important to me and our community to just let it go; plus our audience is growing more now than ever. This is where our audience and community come in. I believe we have enough interest and support in what we are doing to sustain The Zine for many years to come. And, in 2022 we have more ways than ever for our audience to engage with our work. If you’re reading this and The Zine means something to you, please consider making an action that helps us make up for the increased printing and shipping costs.
Our goal is to get to add 1,000 new subscribers to The Zine (WE HAVE ADDED 265 so far!!!)
- And grow the Patreon for our Dirtbag State Of Mind podcast to $1,000 per month.
Thanks in advance for stepping up and keeping the zine alive, so we can keep telling stories in the 2020s and beyond!
