Attention Turtle Club members – this week’s premium live stream is being pushed until tomorrow night at 9:30. Topic, to be announced. I have some matters to attend to tonight, and tomorrow I’m bringing back the bone ride during the day and may be doing an impromptu live from the road.
You can sign up for Turtle club here, and immediately get ad free on this website, a free t-shirt, and access to the weekly premium live stream. Joining Turtle Club is the best way to support the journalism we do at Turtleboy Daily News. We’ve had local advertisers before and usually they get harassed by the people who dedicate their lives to silencing us, until the advertisers can’t take it anymore and stop advertising. It usually goes like this:
“I saw you had an ad on Turtleboy. Are you aware that they said (insert out of context quote from 5 years ago here) this? Do you support (insert out of context quote from 5 years ago here)?”
Advertisers usually have no clue what they’re talking about but don’t like getting harassed while they’re conducting business, so they then pressure us to stop saying controversial things so they stop getting phone calls, which dilutes the brand and makes it less authentic.
The way to take this power away from the haters and guarantee that you receive unfiltered content that isn’t influenced at all by outside forces, is by signing up for Turtle Club. When the readers become the customers instead of the advertisers being the customers, it means we get to cater our content to the readers instead of the advertisers. As it should be.
I love you all.
