Our biggest subscription sale of the year is happening this Friday, April 14!
Our subscriptions will be 41.4% off on 4/14. Happy Milwaukee Day!
The Recombobulation Area is a
six-time TEN-TIME Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
We’ve had the good fortune to welcome a whole lot of new subscribers to The Recombobulation Area over the past few weeks. So first, thanks and welcome aboard!
Second, if you’re looking to go from free to paid, we must say, your timing is terrific.
Because this is when we offer our biggest subscription sale of the year!
For our celebration of Milwaukee Day (4/14 for the 414 area code), we are offering subscriptions for 41.4% off. That means you can support this publication with a full-year subscription for less than $30, or less than $3 per month.
So if you found us recently because of our coverage of the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court (being promoted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Ruffalo, Bradley Whitford and Heather Cox Richardson!) or you found our publication another way, we’d love for you to take advantage of this opportunity and support a full year of the bold, local, independent journalism we produce here at The Recombobulation Area.
Most of what we publish here is free to all. Every once in a while, we’ll put some bonus content behind a paywall, but we’re not asking you to subscribe for the extra bells and whistles, we want you to subscribe to help continue to grow our reader-funded publication and support the work that we do. Every time someone upgrades to paid, it maximizes our impact.
Within the last year, this publication has gone from a part-time project to a full-time business. We want to continue to be able to grow and continue to do more big things.
We want to produce more content. We want to launch a new podcast. We want to put on more events. We want to work with more contributors. There’s so much more we want to be doing. We’re already kicking the tires to make a lot of that happen. But with your support, we can supercharge these efforts so The Recombobulation Area can really take flight.
Milwaukee Day is just a truly phenomenal holiday. Born in 2010 as a half-joking idea between friends Andy Silverman, Brent Gohde, and Timm Gable, Milwaukee Day has grown over the years to become a signature celebration in a city that loves to celebrate. Making the connection between the 414 area code and April 14 (4/14) has turned into a wonderful spring tradition. It really does arrive at a perfect time.
And of course, here at The Recombobulation Area, we love the city of Milwaukee. And we love Milwaukee Day! It feels like it came out of nowhere this year, but Milwaukee Day is this Friday already!
There are a ton of events and deals happening all around town on Friday, as our friends over at Milwaukee Record have detailed. We’d encourage you to support other local businesses who are also celebrating this wonderful holiday.
We’d also encourage you to mark the date and remember to take advantage of this one-day subscription deal.
We’ll be reminding you again on Friday, but consider this your Official Heads Up!
