Where’s The Rest of Them?!
You’ll notice that beginning with today’s post, the Things To Ask Alexa lists will be shorter. This is because it’s become a challenge for me to keep up with the hosting, registration, software and security costs required to maintain this site, never mind the many hours of my own time spent on it each week, so I’ve introduced some premium subscription options to help offset expenses.
I will continue to offer the free email alert option as always, as well as brief, weekly Things To Ask Alexa and Fast Tips Friday posts, but in addition you can now sign up to receive bonus Things To Ask Alexa, Alexa Fast Tips or both via email each week. It’s just $1 per week to subscribe to one of these lists and get 20-25 bonus Things To Ask Alexa or 16-20 Alexa Fast Tips per month, or $1.50 per week to get both. Non-US payments are also accepted, and will be processed at then-current conversion rates each month.
