Decaturish gains 80 new subscribers, needs 620 to reach goal by July 1


Decaturish began a push for new subscribers on April 26. We’re trying to get 700 new sign-ups by July 1.

So far, we’ve had a decent response, with 80 new subscriptions. Currently, we have about 2,640 subscribers. We’ve had several of our longtime subscribers up their monthly contributions. (Everything helps!) Our subscriptions start at $6 a month. You can sign up for a subscription or increase your monthly amount via Donorbox by visiting supportyourlocalnews.com.

You can sign up via supportmylocalnews.com, supportourlocalnews.com, and supportthelocalnews.com, too. They all go to the same place.

What’s the primary benefit subscribers receive? Having a reliable community news source that’s not stuck behind a paywall. Your subscriptions support a team of people who cover our community daily. Our team includes our first full-time reporter, Zoe Seiler, and numerous contributors, including Dean Hesse, Sara Amis, Angela Walker, Jaedon Mason, Lucas Hill, and Mary Margaret Stewart.

Subscribers also receive our ad-free e-edition monthly and access to our private Slack and Facebook groups. Decaturish tries to hold a quarterly virtual town hall for our subscribers featuring a special guest, usually someone prominent within our community. We work with our advertisers to provide our subscribers with exclusive deals.

Decaturish is doing important work that no one else is doing.

More often than not, Decaturish is the only media outlet telling stories about your community. While other media outlets have largely abandoned covering smaller communities in DeKalb County, we have continued to expand our coverage. Readers in Stone Mountain, Tucker, and Clarkston are now part of our website, getting the same coverage that Decatur, Avondale Estates and Kirkwood/East Lake have gotten for years. We always want to bring news to more underserved communities.

Our coverage is only limited by the amount of support we receive from our readers and our business community. (Businesses can buy advertising by contacting [email protected])

If you read us daily (and we know at least 144,000 of you do) and you depend on us for local news, please take a moment today to become a paying subscriber by visiting supportyourlocalnews.com. We need you to continue doing what we do.

And if you’re already a subscriber, please share this with your friends and let them know why you decided to become a monthly contributor to Decaturish.

Thank you for supporting Decaturish.
