My new blog on Substack, “The American Peasant,” is free to everyone until Dec. 15. After that, some posts will be for subscribers (such as where I talk trash about Captain Kangaroo [JK]), and others will be free. Subscriptions are $5 a month. Or $60 a year. And you will be able to try it out free for 14 days.
Here are the two most recent entries. Click on the image to read the post.

Why not keep all your postings here? Money?
I explain it all here: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2022/11/24/this-is-not-a-breakup-letter/
I wish your new endeavors well. I’m not chasing yet another forum/blog.
I tried subscribing, but not sure if it worked. I believe Samuel Johnson said something to the effect that you should be paid for what you write.
Yup. You subscribed! Thank you!
Subscribers won’t be charged until Dec. 15, which is when the paywall becomes active.
I’ve enjoyed your website, this blog, insights, old-school advice, etc….for quite a while…..and I’ve bought a few things. Many of your daily posts/writing seem linked to things being offered for sale.
Is Lost Art primarily about the art of woodworking or is all about commerce?
For me, I don’t want to pay a monthly subscription for commerce ideas–an artsier way of selling stuff?
For me, I’m just not interested in chasing another blog where I have to pay to get advise on what i need to buy to become a better craftsman.
If you were primarily publishing excerpts from your own original writing and work, I’d get it. Don’t give it away. But it seems that much of what you’re offering is advise and things by created by others. Maybe I’m wrong on that. It wouldn’t be the first time I’m not fully understanding what’s going on.
Best of luck in all that you do!
Feel free to unsubscribe here, and we will give you a full refund on anything you’ve purchased. We give away as much woodworking information as we can. But we do have to eat. Apologies.
I have subscribed! I have followed Chris since the days of PWW and he has inspired me to undertake my own journey into entrepreneurship (and no, its not even remotely related to woodworking. That is a hobby!). I have bought his early books however, the recent turn into campaign furniture or chairs is not really my cup of tea. Having said that, I still gain tremendous value from reading his blog here. As much as Chris rails about capitalism, the brutal & bitter truth of life is that there is no better way of capital allocation when done right. In this respect it resembles nature; survival of the fittest. Yes, Chris is selling his ideas and products but that is why he started the company. If we gain value from those ideas, products and services then we should support him so he can put food on the table and write / create ideas & products that bring value to us. Cheers.
I’ll become a subscriber just so I can remediate the last 15 years of free info and ideas I’ve received here. Thanks!
