As you may be aware based on prior articles, monetizing work as an independent, dissident journalist outside of the mainstream paradigm is increasingly difficult due to a multi-pronged assault of censorship, social media shadow-banning, advertiser boycotts, etc.

If the technocrats had their druthers, it wouldn’t just be difficult to make a living as an independent journalist; it would be outright impossible.

Suffice it to say: I don’t make nearly enough money writing at Armageddon Prose to make it an economically viable project. Even if I didn’t make any money at all, truth be told, I would continue writing. But, given how much time I put into this endeavor, I’d like to make something nonetheless for my efforts.

As a result, I’m always considering innovative new ways to generate revenue. Recently, in that pursuit, I began developing a proprietary Armageddon Prose merch store.

My wife, a graphic artist, is currently working on some other cool artwork to incorporate into t-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, etc.

I even made Armageddon Prose lumbar support pillows.

I’ll be diligent about continually adding more inventory. If what you see now on the site doesn’t blow your socks off, consider checking in from time to time to glimpse the latest stuff.

Also, if you have any brilliant ideas for new products that you might like to purchase, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Regardless of whether you patronize the merch store or not, all Armageddon Prose content moving forward will remain entirely free with no content behind a paywall.

God bless you all.
