What Subscriptions Have Allowed Us to Do This Week, and Why We Encourage You to Help


Hello, dear readers! Those of you who’ve subscribed—which we greatly appreciate—already get a daily newsletter about, among other things, what’s going on behind the scenes around here, but I want to take another opportunity to show everyone what we’ve been doing lately to improve The Mary Sue’s content and make a case for why you should consider subscribing to help us keep the site on this track.

After all, the main goal of the subscription, from our perspective, is to give us the financial freedom to write what we want to write and what we think is important—in addition to the fun (and sometimes not so fun) things we find floating around the Internet to share with you—and our five full-time writers work every day to make good on that promise, with help from our contributors. Here’s a look at the original content we’ve produced since our latest update last week:

Each of these posts took a significant amount of time from a member of our small staff over the past week—time we can only afford to take if we don’t have to chase traffic. We’ve also been taking extra time to make our daily news articles more substantive, and our paid contributors have been doing great work:

It’s been a busy week, and it’s all been made possible by our subscribers. We like the site a whole lot better with all this original content and thoughtful coverage, but we need your help to keep it up. If you can spare $4.99 a month to support us while we make The Mary Sue better for everyone—on top of the subscriber benefits of an ad-free site, an exclusive newsletter, and monthly live chats with the editors—please consider subscribing and helping to make this site the best it can be.

The Mary Sue has a strict comment policy that forbids, but is not limited to, personal insults toward anyone, hate speech, and trolling.—
