First, I’m thankful for YOU. I’m thankful you are here and apart of Rethink. It would not be the same without you!
I started Rethink almost 7 years ago and I have loved writing on this site! In the past year, there’s been tremendous growth! This blog has grown, and continues to grow, beyond where I ever thought it would! That’s the GOOD news. But with that growth, the time and resources that it takes to run and maintain have also drastically increased.
Let me just give you an idea of what things cost.

Costs Of Running Rethink
- Site Hosting = $50 a month
- Editing/Scheduling Software (for photos/videos/social media posts) = $60 a month
- Editing For Blog Posts = $10 – $20 per post
- Website Theme = $200 a year
- Tools For Website = $200 a month
- Marketing (social media/email) = $300 a month
- My Time = around 10 hours a week
Those are the recurring charges. But there’s also sizable one time costs. Cameras, lights, microphones, etc… Those are expenses I save for with the extra income that comes in and buy them as needed.
The rough break down for the current cost to run Rethink is a little over $600 a month (on-top of the 10+ hours a week of my time). As Rethink continues to grow this price will continue to rise.
Now, my primary purpose in Rethink is not to make money. Rather I gladly do it because I want to help people (like you) grow in their faith and fall in love with the Bible.
