Free as in Beer 🍺
An update on the Pro Membership at Return on Security and what the future holds for this site.
Table of Contents
I've decided to do away with the Pro Membership at Return on Security as of today.
I'll still make the same kind of content as I did for the Pro Membership, but now it will be free for everyone.
To everyone who bought a Pro Membership over the years, THANK YOU!
This site would not have evolved into what it has become without the early supporters.
"Give away your best work for free"
I want to focus on evolving the business behind Return on Security.
This isn't just a side blog for me, it's a forward-leaning look at where I want to take my career.
I'm giving away my "best work" for free so I can have the freedom to discover new problems to solve new angles.
Writing is still fun for me, but I want to focus on other things like the emerging data subscription business and making more industry impact.
I like sharing my experiences, making connections, and lending a helping hand.
I feel like I can supercharge those efforts by putting the content out there for more people to engage with.
Making the content free helps me focus on growing the part of the business that can bring more value to the industry and get me closer to reaching my goals.
Supporting Independent Publishing
Do you still want to support my work even if you don't get anything extra for it?
I moved to just a purely donation-based tier system that you can find here.
If you still feel compelled to support me, I thank you, but please don't feel pressured. 👏
