There are also readers who visit the TPP every so often, without knowing or remembering that they did, because a post from Facebook sent them to us. We don’t ask anything from these readers either: we’re glad you exist and we hope that at some point you’ll discover the joy of independent journalism. It’s a big one.

There are, however, readers that belong to a third category somewhere in the middle. This is for them, and it’s to them that we’re directing this campaign.

We know from our site’s analytics that there’s an important category of readers who aren’t just occasional ones. You don’t happen upon us because Facebook sent you our way some morning. You visit ThePressProject every day and you read several pages, one after the other. And you aren’t subscribers.

Because you read us regularly, you know why you’re here. We’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that the journalism that you appreciate and choose is professionally produced by a team of journalists whose livelihoods depend on the difficult circumstances here at ThePressProject. We have offices we have to rent, bills, and regular salaries; we pay taxes. We also try, as much as we are able, to maintain and increase the quantity and quality and skill of our posts. We want to tell you that this isn’t a blog written by people who earn their livings elsewhere.

So if you belong to this third category, please become a member so that ThePressProject—the medium you choose to read—can continue to exist. It won’t be able to continue without your support.

To become a member, join ThePressProject’s platform and commit to making a monthly contribution. The only self-funded, independent professional online journalism outlet in Greece costs just 5 euros.
