I'll keep it short: running a magazine, a website, and four separate blogs is expensive. Real journalism always is. But the recession is affecting us the same as everyone else, and we're running a few dollars short this year. So we're trying to raise $50,000 before we kick off 2010, and twenty or thirty bucks from a few hundred of my readers can get us a good part of the way there.
So that's the pitch: if you like the blog, if you like the magazine, if you like our brand of journalism, help us out if you can. Don't starve the cats to do it, but if you can afford 10 or 25 or 50 dollars to keep us going, click here to contribute. Or go here to contribute via PayPal. It's quick, secure, and tax deductible. Thanks!
