I've thought for a long time about it and if Redstate had a paywall and/or a subscription plan to be a part of the blog, I would pay for it. I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of $5.00 a year to read only front page articles, $10 a year to read front page and recommended entries as well as comment, and $25 a year to read and contribute with full commenting privileges everywhere (subject to applicable rules, of course).
What do you think? For a long time I've wanted not to *contribute* to Redstate but actively to *pay* for the content here.
To help the process of thinking about this I have 5 options and I'd prefer if you indicate your choice in the response:
1 - I would never pay for anything on a blog or in the blogosphere.
2 - I would pay a subscription fee to read the blog but not comment
3 - I would pay a fee to read the blog, comment but not contribute entries
4 - I would pay a fee if it allowed me full access including creating entries
5 - I believe in micropayment subscriptions for all access, all the time
