I started this site at my own risk and expense and run it that way as well. I have put over 6 years into it and have always been grateful for any donations and help I get but have been very reluctant to ask for any.
Many people have regularly helped out however, but I won’t name them because I do not know if they want to be named, but you know who you are and thank you.
I have paid for this site and my expenses by income from two different basically seasonal jobs. So far this has worked really well. But this summer the income from both has dried up. I hope that in the fall things get back to normal but I’ll deal with that when I get to it.
For the moment, I am hoping that a few of you might feel that you can spare a few dollars if you feel this site and our work at this site is worth the effort and expense it takes. I also know that many of you contribute in tips and comments and that is also very appreciated. At the moment though, my concern is less abstract. The cost of the server, security, internet access and so on is a strain for these summer months. So if any of you can see your way to drop a few dollars into the donations button at the top right of the site, that would be really appreciated.
Sorry to interrupt the news with this request. Know that it hurts me more to ask than for you to ignore it 🙂
