TFF Support Drive 2010
October 13, 2010 Commissar Ploss
I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the new progress bar at the top of the page…
Well, It’s time for me to make a humble request to my followers and supporters, so we’re having a Support Drive here at TFF. It’s a small goal, but one that will help out very much.
So, i’ve done all the math, and the figures don’t look as good as i’d like them. As a solely out-of-pocket news venture, TFF has been running on my ability to shoulder the fees. From an outside view there isn’t anything ostensibly wrong with this. However, being here on the inside as i am, it has become painfully clear to me that i may not be able to afford to do this completely on my own. With the fees associated with a site of this nature, and the desire for me to be right in the middle of the news in order to get the best possible information for everyone, I’ve run out of the surplus funds necessary to keep this venture afloat. The advertising that i’m hosting helps, but i can’t run the website on advertising alone, that would make this place waaaay to cluttered, not to mention it’s a stupid idea.
This is where you, the readers come in. If you’ve got a few spare dollars, i encourage you to click the donate button under the progress bar. It’s a secure transaction made through Paypal, so you don’t need to worry about your information leaking out. The goal for this year, 2010, is a meager $200. It’s not much, but it is an amount that will greatly help with the expenses of running this site, and bringing you the news, author interviews, book reviews, giveaways, and other topics you’ve come to expect from The Founding Fields. If you click on the Donate button, you will see when it comes up that it says the word “Blade Maid”, Don’t worry, you aren’t donating to some other site, that is just the name our paypal account is registered under (this question was asked of me via email, thought i would mention it). Rest assured, i will not be making a profit off of any of the money donated. Any and all funds bunged in will go directly back into the site and it’s expenses.
