Blue, I've been reading Bluesnews since the beginning. It's always on my morning read list, after the comics, and before the main stream news.
I have long appreciated the well curated news links here, and frankly, I don't know where I'd go for my gaming/tech/interesting things daily news fix if you went away.
I've been using your Amazon affiliate link as my way of helping offset my use of an adblocker, and I hope it's helped.
As many others have stated, I would be happy to contribute on a monthly basis. 3-5 bucks is fine, and I personally would consider a higher tier. No reward required. The reward is the product you produce, and that allows me to continue using uBlock origin without guilt. This is worth more to me than my Wapo subscription.
I already contribute monthly to a couple of podcasts, via Patreon, so that's fine with me if it works for you.
I also would love to buy a Bluenews T-shirt. Let me recommend cottonbureau.com. Adam Savage uses them for his 'Savage Industries' T-shirts. I've bought a half dozen of them in gray and black, and they are really high quality tees. Very soft. Soft enough that I even wear them to bed.
