In the interest of transparency, Spiral Nature Magazine has shared its financials for the past three years we’ve been attempting to make money to pay our writers and editors. You can find our financials for 2016, 2015, and 2014 already published, as well as the financials for 2017.
In September we regaled you with the awesome things we did, and I’ll give you an update of what we’ve accomplished since then.
In September, we published 3 articles, 10 reviews, 5 editions of our weekly astrology column, Hidden Insights, and 5 other items. All in all, we’ve published 258 things this year. All of it freely available to you, dear reader.
Here’s what money came in, and where our money was spent this month:
There are so many great things we want to do with Spiral Nature, but with our current losses, it’s simply not possible.
As you can see, for the first time ever, we had a surplus of $82 in October! This is partially thanks to more sponsored posts and to our new membership program. However, we still have a combined loss of $2,215 so far in 2017.
It’s not sustainable.
That’s where you (hopefully) come in.
We’ve had a few responses lately, and this has been so rewarding to see. Thank you so much to those who have joined. You have no idea how much it means to me and everyone here. Thank you.
What would you like to see in a membership program from Spiral Nature? How much would you be willing to donate to help us out?
We also shared our awesome courses:
- Ancestor Work Fundamentals, from Kalagni, a Buddhist ceremonial magician living in Toronto.
- Crystal Grid Fundamentals, from Susan Starr, a writer, a shamanic and third-degree Reiki practitioner, and a tarot and oracle card reader.
Just a reminder that half the money goes directly into the pocket of the course creators, the other half goes to Spiral Nature to help us fund the writers and editors who make this magazine possible.
We have a course in development to help you get started with tarot, and another to introduce you to the fae. What else would you like to see from Spiral Nature? Please let us know.
Want to help?
If you don’t have the resources for a premium membership or one of our awesome courses, then consider sharing Spiral Nature Magazine with friends you think would be interested in our content.
Also, please let our writers know how much you appreciate their work in the comments. Virtual pats on the back are always welcome.
If you have suggestions for other potential avenues for income, or things you’d like to see Spiral Nature doing, please let us know.
We’ll publish our financials each month, and keep you abreast of any suggestions that emerge.
Thanks, as always, for your support!
