BORN Country Reaches Out To Readers Via Patreon
Hello, fellow 90’s country music fans! As you may have seen over the past week, I have been sharing posts about our new page at Patreon.com. What is Patreon, you ask? Patreon allows BORN Country readers just like you to subscribe for exclusive content while also helping your favorite 90’s country music website to grow.
At press time, there are 4 different subscription tiers:
- Friends In Low Places – $1/Month
- Shake The Sugar Tree – $2/Month
- Ten Feet Tall And Bulletproof – $5/Month
- Livin’ That Honky-Tonk Dream – $10/Month
Each pricing tier comes with exclusive benefits such as never before shared concert photos, CD giveaways, early access to our weekly Throwback Top10 Countdown results, videos and more!
In order for BORN Country to continue to thrive and survive, we need support from you, our dedicated fans. Without you I couldn’t have made it as far as I have, and now BORN Country needs you even more so to continue moving forward!
I hope you will read below and then visit us at patreon.com/borncountry to safely subscribe and support at your preferred tier/price point.
Thank you so much for all that you’ve done so far!
- How Will Your Support Each Month Help BORN Country?:
- Hosting Fees: Websites cost money. Each year we have to pay our hosting fees to keep BORN Country open. Think of it as paying our “rent” for an online apartment.
- BORN Country Radio: Plans are in place to begin a new Podcast series which will include interviews with your favorite 90’s country artists. However, this project requires new recording equipment and more hosting fees to get off of the ground. A number of artists are already lined up to record the first episodes!
- Better Camera Equipment: Our concert photos are some of the most popular draws to BORN Country. We are currently running on the most basic camera equipment, but with your help, we can make some major improvements.
- Travel: You love our concert reviews, but wish we could cover more than just the Cleveland, OH area? Help me jump on that airplane or into that rental car! Can’t visit Nashville for CMA Fest? Let us bring the festival to you via iwasborncountry.com!
- Me: Running BORN Country takes a LOT of time. Your support not only helps BORN Country grow, but will allow myself a little paycheck each month. I absolutely love doing what I do, but a guy needs to eat, pay rent and take his beautiful wife out once in awhile!
- Hire More Writers: I work my butt off to bring as much 90’s country fun to iwasborncountry.com on a weekly basis, but just imagine if we had another one or two writers on staff to create even MORE content!
If you find any value in BORN Country, we hope that you’ll find a tier level to the right that meets your desire to help. Once again, thank you so much for all of the love that you folks have shown BORN Country over the first two years. It truly means the world to me and continues to inspire me to improve!
