What's something worth that you get for free?
A friend suggested, "Charge $20 per issue. If you charge people a lot, they.ll value it more. Maybe you should charge $50." There's something true about that.
This question bothers me. Especially since we've moved to a pay-it-forward model. How can it be valued if no money is charged?
Well, it's not free, exactly. Because someone has paid already. What you're receiving has been paid for by others.both in dollars and effort.
We don't sell ads, either. Nor are we supported by grants. Our support comes entirely from readers.
We produce the magazine in the spirit of a gift. It's like art itself, that way. So how do you value a gift?
