Consider Supporting selfh.st/ed

While selfh.st/ed is entirely self-hosted, there are a few unavoidable service costs associated with operating the publication (bulk SMTP delivery, cloud mirrors, etc.). Please consider making a small one-time or recurring donation to help offset the costs of utilizing these services.
