The View from the Front Extended announcement
I wanted to announce something that I think is pretty exciting.
Beginning this week, I’m launching The View from the Front Extended.
So, what’s The View from the Front Extended?
The View from the Front Extended is something I’ll be doing for paid subscribers.
It’s going to be my way of thanking (and adding value) to those who are able to support my work so I can devote more time to it.
It’s going to be a semi-daily and informal publication, a combination of news currently happening, as well as my thoughts. But perhaps most importantly, it will allow for conversations and community among those who really love getting into the weeds on foreign policy and military matters.
I’m calling it semi-daily, because I’m not sure how often I’ll put it out. Hopefully, quite often, but I do have a full-time day job and an awesome family, which includes a 14-year-old who plays travel baseball (AND rec ball, for more reps, lol), so I’ll just do the best I can, keeping it fun and not making it a task or burden.
I also truly hope — and think it’s possible — that this might be a watering hole/gathering place for a small community of folks. A site that will allow for conversations and community among commenters (without trolls or bomb throwers).
With luck, we’ll grow a place where we can all talk, debate, and ask questions. (Only paid subscribers will be able to see or comment on these posts, so this could — maybe — really turn into something cool. A place to comment and talk OTHER than angry, hate-filled places like Twitter. A place like my old blog was from back in 2012-13, where a small community often commented, bantered, and got to converse regularly without outiders interupting and ruining everything.)
I truly do appreciate all my supporters and listeners, and this is just a small way I want to repay those who have signed up as paid subscribers. (And it also is another step forward toward the long-term dream and vision I currently have.)
If you’d like to upgrade and go from free to paid, here’s the link:
But no pressure. I’ve already got a nice contingent of awesome, paying supporters, and this is mostly for them.
Love and peace,
