Simple Desks is a small site, but takes a lot of time to maintain. Sometimes it can take a few hours a day to find content, write posts, respond to mail and fix issues. Along with a full time job my time is therefore very, very limited. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a joy to be a part of this site and its surprisingly large - and altogether lovely - following. However if the site is to be sustainable it needs to bring in a larger income - to a reasonable extent - so that I can justify spending the time I do on maintaining it.
Simple Desks will always remain free. But if you enjoy the site and value the time you spend here, I would warmly encourage you to become a member and support it.
- A monthly subscription costs £1 (~$1.50) - less than a coffee at Starbucks - and will help the site develop, grow and continue.
- Alternatively you can opt for a yearly subscription for £10 (~$15).
Subscriptions are handled by PayPal (no account required).
In return, I aim to increase the post frequency at Simple Desks from around three a day to six or so. In addition there will be more original content and a lot more depth to posts in general. In future there will also be some extra benefits for members to enjoy.
Whether you subscribe or not, thanks for reading. If you have any questions about this or anything else, feel free to contact me.
Hello everyone! Thank you for being so patient over the last few months. Finally - finally - Simple Desks is back, and with a spruced up design to shake off the cobwebs.
Gradually this week posting will resume, the aim being to post a rough tally of six entries a day once everything is back up to speed.
Thanks to everyone for their kind messages of support.
It’s been several months since I last updated Simple Desks. You might remember that before the long absence I had planned to upgrade the site a little bit. Unfortunately as I worked on these upgrades my life underwent a few changes which, until now, have dominated most of my time.
I’ve managed to get a handle on things, and I’m pleased to finally let you all know that in the next few days Simple Desks will rumble into life again. I’ve got many, many submissions so there’s no shortage of content (quite the opposite).
During the intervening period I have received countless messages, all of them lovely. Thanks to everyone for being so patient and kind as always. Hopefully I can begin to repay your continued support in the coming days.
Many thanks, and a belated Happy New Year to you all.
