Two announcements and a poll
Issue #79: Some ways you can support Womaning
I am really excited to share two big announcements this week!
You can now support Womaning through paid subscriptions.
If your heart is sinking at this piece of news, let me first reassure you:
All posts on Womaning in India will remain freely accessible.
My very idea behind starting this newsletter was to take these important conversations to every drawing room, bedroom, and, yes, every toilet.
So I have thought about this a lot and decided not to paywall any Womaning content.
That said, the fact remains that Womaning in India is a labour of love, which I have done for almost two years for no direct payment, except for some delicious coffees many of you bought me on my Buy Me A Coffee page.
But now, you can directly support my work by signing up as a paid subscriber or a Womaning Patron. on Substack
What do you get if you become a paid subscriber / Womaning Patron?
🌹My eternal gratitude - of course - and my ability to keep all the content free for everyone, including anyone who cannot afford the subscription.
👚Complimentary Womaning merchandise delivered at your doorstep
📞If you become a Womaning Patron, a one-on-one call with me, where we can discuss all things Womaning
Wait… Did I just say “Womaning Merchandise”?
Coming Soon… Womaning Merchandise!
Many of you have written to me over the last two years that you would love to own your own Womaning in India merchandise.
After wasting a lot of time in an imposter-y denial, I am finally in talks with a digital store for creating and selling said merch for us.
If all goes well, I will share the product catalog in another post real soon.
Right now, I am also looking for ideas for merch that Womaning readers would enjoy, like:
Here’s where you come in.
Tell me a Womaning meme that has stuck with you enough for you to want to own merch with the meme on it.
I am putting some of my own initial thoughts in the comments to get the ball rolling, and will lean towards the most ‘liked’ ideas here.
Of course, if I love your idea and end up actually using the meme you suggest, I will send you a free merch item that was created using your suggestion.
