Check out the latest news and information from Siskiyou News:
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a new year.
I am looking forward to the new year and this is my first attempt to add a newsletter, please keep in mind English was not my strong suit in school, and I am doing my best to improve and make it readable for you.
HOW DID I GET YOUR EMAIL?
I used the email addresses that you used at checkout when you donated to me (Siskiyou.News) through the old platform. Meaning the old website.
CANCELATION EMAIL YESTERDAY?
I canceled all recurring payments with square and PayPal. With the paywall, it is much easier to have it all managed with the new payment system that also handles the paywall. Sorry for the inconvenience.
No, I am working from the email list of donors and I am grandfathering you past the paywall. Please be patient with me as I work on this transition.
Meanwhile here is a code for 3 months while I work on this.
use this in the discount code section on the subscription page or click on the subscription email that was sent out about a month ago.
THANK YOU, IT MEANS SO MUCH TO HAVE YOUR SUPPORT AND SEE VALUE IN TRYING TO KEEP A SOURCE OF LOCAL NEWS ALIVE.
So why the change? what’s going on? What was my thinking?
Well, as I got into this I wasn’t getting the results that I was envisioning, and I was having a lot of issues on the backend and difficulty working with the website software, being that most of it was overseas it was not easy to email back n forth. Morning on the west coast was quitting time for them.
In my request for help and donations, I was contacted by a small independent newspaper in southern Oregon that turned me on to the gentleman that I am using now that created the paywall project, and he strictly does small news websites. It is so nice to be able to pick up the phone, share our computer screens and work together, teaching me the new website and how to make it better and easier for you to use and readability.
This is a business and I have to run it like one. Your support is what makes it all possible, with the website in conjunction with the Facebook pages. It’s the best coverage in Siskiyou County. The website is very secure. There are no cookies, no tracking, no nothing, it’s all based in the US. I don’t sell your information. You don’t end up on an email list. Striving To Keep events local and news that is relevant.
I ALWAYS LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU..
I am an open book, yep I have made my share of mistakes, and I am pretty sure I am not done yet. If you have news, stories, or letters of wisdom to share with me or the world I would like to be your conduit.
Have A Wonderful 2023
