Sponsorship & Membership

As Guy English (excerpted at smarterbits) puts it:

A business model where the author only occasionally writes longer pieces can’t be sustained — there’s too much time between pieces for sponsorships to work, and daily site traffic will be so low that ads won’t work well either.

This kind of unsustainability is what I aim for.

Where should your money go instead? I suggest giving to GiveDirectly — a cost-effective non-profit recommended by GiveWell.
