Random thought from a College of Media (back in my day it was called Communications) grad, who shunned journalism for law: it’s called media because there are multiple tiers. You have carved out a niche that we, your supporters, appreciate. As was said above, trust your gut. We will call you out if - and only if - your passion wanes. Until then, go the distance!
BTW - glad you’re bringing back the tip jar, but still believe you are underpriced.
