Another classic post for the New Year.
What am I paying for on a regular basis? What subscriptions do I have going? I bet I’ll be scared when I get to the end of this one, and I’m sure I’ll forget about some services too.
Also, I HATE subscriptions!
In no particular order:
Adobe Cloud Photography Plan - can’t really work without it. Also hosting my photography site.
Netflix - Must have, we’re on a family plan, it helps to keep the cost down. A little.
Apple TV+ - On and off, according to our needs to watch something on it.
Spotify - Family plan, need it.
iCloud 2TB plan - Enough room for all the photos comes with a hefty price tag.
Fastmail - No way I’m ever leaving this one. Hosts all the domains I have.
omg.lol - Was kindly upgraded to a lifetime account, so I keep a secondary one as a way to support the service.
Micro.blog - Another one I can’t see myself living without.
Drafts - Love, and need.
Ulysses - New subscription. Liking it.
1Password - Moved to a subscription, although I could go on living without one for a while longer. Family plan.
Halide - Camera app when I need something the camera app can’t deliver.
Updown - Cheap uptime monitor, could live without it.
Plausible - Will probably cancel, found free alternative that I enjoy.
Raindrop - Will probably move back to the very generous free tier.
PocketCasts - It’s either this, or Castro. Both have subscription model, so there’s no way around it.
1Blocker - Forget it exists, great job.
Mullvad - My VPN service. Like it.
Carrot - Could live without, but it wouldn’t be as much fun.
Mailbrew - Will let subscription lapse when it ends. Lovely service, but not using it enough to justify the cost.
Flickr - Have to keep paying. Archive.
Apollo - Support the service, doesn’t get much use.
Letterboxd - Subscription was discounted, enjoying it.
Blot - Home of sticker spotter, good for a year. Let’s see how long it lasts.
Ghost - Home of dinkiwinkiminkiwinki. Have to.
Glass - Subscribed on a whim, will not renew.
Smash - On and off, according to need to transfer photos.
NextDNS - Love. Cheap. Will keep paying.
Porkbun - Home of domains. A few at the moment. Too many.
I was right, I’m a little scared! Something will have to change.
