Free articles increased during KYGA19


Because of the number of stories we’ll be posting during the General Assembly, we have increased the number of free articles available each month from 6 to 10. This means that each reader of the site can read up to 10 articles a month before the “flexible paywall” kicks in and asks you to become a member.

We installed the flexible paywall late last year, in order to have you, our readers, consider becoming members to help keep Forward Kentucky financially viable. As a result, we have gained a number of new members, but we still need more to be solid financially. If you’ve been thinking of joining, right now at the beginning of the session would be a great time.

Members get unlimited access to articles, as well as to each issue of the Forward Kentucky Magazine. There are other perks in place and planned, as well. And, the Basic membership costs less than one cup of coffee a month!

We think this work is important, and we hope you do too. That’s why we’ve increased the article threshold, and that’s why you should become a member. Help us keep Forward Kentucky going strong, and get the benefits of membership. Join today!
