This sucks! Why am I getting a TLO paywall?

If you’re reading this page, you’re probably wondering why you're being asked to register to read our content that you probably found on social media.

To save you time, I’ll answer that as quickly and clearly as possible:

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

Yep, it’s true! You’ve read so much of our non-award-winning content that we’re actually asking you to actually pay for it! 

You see, in October of 2022, The Lost Ogle switched over to a metered-paywall membership system via the Lede platform. Under that system…

– Your first couple of visits to the site are free.

– Your next couple of visits to the site 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 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 compensate us for the service we provide, go for it!


If for some reason you do want to pay us, 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. As always…

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
