The IKN Weekly, out now

cold like a polar bear and laden with yummy memories

IKN99 has just been sent to subscribers. Meanwhile, in other news blog reader 'PS' writes this mail (redacted):
"Hi Otto, I have been reading your blog for a few months now and wanted to ask you about the discounted subscription. Does the $25 monthly subscription fee only apply when paying annually or can I subscribe now and pay $25 monthly as long as it is continuous? Hope that makes sense. As you can tell from this email, I really enjoy the blog. Thanks, PS"

The best answer I have to that is 1) to write it here so more readers than just PS get the message and 2) explain the following:
  • Next Monday April 4th, the price of The IKN Weekly is going up to $40 per month or $400 per year for all new subscribers.
  • That means that anyone subscribed before April 4th will pay the current rate of $25/month or $250/year
  • But to get to your point and answer your question PS, if you subscribe now at $25/month (or $250/year) you will not be asked to pay the new rate once it's in place. You will be grandfathered indefinitely at the old rate as long as you're on board before April 4th. By way of a clear example, if you subscribe on April 3rd, come May 3rd you'll be charged $25 for the next month's editions (and the same for all following months). But if you subscribe on April 5th, you'll pay $40 in May (and all following months). That also applies to the $250 yearly subscription price.

That answer your Q, PS? Thanks for writing by the way, as it might help others too.
