  •  

If you look at other sites, you'll notice that they may be free initially to join, but you’ll be urged to pay for various functions on the website, or buy products advertised on the website.  Our philosophy is we'll charge you just enough for your membership, and you don't have to pay more!  We want you to focus on getting the most out of your membership!

Our membership fees go toward server costs, maintenance and administration, software, photography, editorial time, programming, and writers.
