BoLS Prime Membership
Why Become a Member?
- Memberships pay for BoLS’s organizational costs, including staff.
- You join a community of smart and engaged gamers.
- You get deeper content and additional upcoming news.
- You’ll see fewer (or NO) ads and have a faster, better reading experience.
A membership to Prime, or Prime Ad Free, will give you access to special features each day, including: exclusive posts from Larry Vela and other editors, articles detailing how and why we chose to focus on covering the stories we did, as well as what we see on the horizon newswise and upcoming industry trends. The different membership plans vary in the perks they offer, but all members gain additional insight — what we think of as a “captain’s seat” of the site. You gain more access to us as individuals and content creators and a member’s only community of like minded gamers. A safe-harbor if you will, in the rough seas of the internet.
We think this is all good stuff. But: The key aspect of memberships is not the extra features — it’s that memberships are literally critical to keeping BoLS going. These are tempestuous times in the internet publishing industry. Many internet publishers, including several giant websites with household names are facing serious hardship.
BoLS isn’t entirely dependent on advertising, and are diversifying and catering to you, our core readers with our membership program. Reader memberships cover ever more of our operating budget. We hope to expand that in 2019, but we need your help.
So, if you want to support what we do, please become a member.
