Your Sponsorship and Support of Independent Publishing

Our first podcast was in the Fall of 2005. Now over 680 episodes later, we're more dedicated to sharing news about gear and thoughts of artistic inspiration than ever. You can help support our independent online publishing in a few ways.


Pledge Through Patreon

Patreon is the easiest way to support The Digital Story and The Nimble Photographer - all with just one click of a button, and for as little as $5 a month. Visit our page at and click on the Become a Patron button. It's that easy. As a thank you for your support, you will have access to the exclusive content and behind the scenes news. Plus I publish tutorials and tips exclusively for Inner Circle Members.

Become an Independent Online Supporter - Single Contribution

As an individual who believes in small business publishing, you can contribute by Becoming an Independent Online Supporter. The Digital Story, The Nimble Photographer, and theAnalogstory are solely owned and operated by Derrick Story. This is his day job. Contributing only takes a minute, but helps provide toward a year's worth of content, not only for the current publishing, but to bring to life the new ideas in the hopper.

Podcast Sponsorship

Sponsors of the weekly podcast receive much more than the typical canned ad spots. The Digital Story gets behind its sponsors and explains to listeners the benefits and uniqueness of their product or service. Sponsorship includes informative story spots on the podcast, ad tiles on the, and short blurbs on social media sites.

Our goal is to do this in a way that informs and entertains the listener. Product mentions contain useful information. And we feature sponsors who have products and services that we believe are interesting and helpful to our audience.

Sponsors can sign up for a single show, but we recommend a bundle of four that includes a discount. You can learn more about becoming a sponsor by writing Derrick at:
