when I started this newsletter in 2013, I’d never imagined to writing this for nine years, to have thousands of subscribers via email, and many more via the website, social media, and the RSS feed. With many ups and downs, changes in schedule, and ups and downs in motivation, I’m glad to have this project still alive, to get feedback from my dear readers (you), and seem to have a positive impact on web developers’ work lives. This is what still motivates me today.

But what remains open is the question of monetarizing this project. I have always accepted contributions, but they decline every year. And while the monthly schedule brings a bit more flexibility, writing the newsletter is the big chunk of work. Right now, I’m happy if the contributions at least pay my hosting and sending bills.

If you have an opinion on the topic, please let me know whether you’d favor relevant ads in the newsletter or prefer to contribute regularly by replying to the email. Until I’ve come to a decision, you can help me with a small contribution.
