This sucks! Why am I getting a TLO paywall?

To save you time, I’ll answer the question in the headline as quickly and clearly as possible:

You read The Lost Ogle too much and ran out of free articles!

In October of 2022, The Lost Ogle switched to a metered-paywall membership system via the Lede platform. Here's how that works:

– Your first visit to the site each month is free.

– Your next couple of visits are free if you provide us with an email address.

– All future visits require you to subscribe to our site for as little as $5 a month. 

If you're cheap and that bums you out, don’t worry. There are plenty of ways to circumnavigate our paywall. I’ll let you figure those ways out on your own, but if you want to go through time-consuming hurdles to not fairly compensate us for the service we provide, all power to you. We get it. Have fun.


If for some reason you don't mind supporting local media and paying for the content that costs us time, money, and resources to produce, please enroll as a Lost Ogle subscriber. That way, you can continue reading as many articles as you want without any hassle!

Not only will doing so help support local media, but having a subscriber/membership base lets us maintain our independence, expand our coverage, and try new things.

Hell, maybe we'll even hire a proofreader. You never know.

Anyway, whether you subscribe or not, we’d like to thank you for stopping by the site and reading our words.
