Although I had been blogging elsewhere for awhile, the doors at Eclectablog opened up ten years ago this past summer. During that time we’ve gone from one guy writing about an eclectic assortment of topics to becoming the main progressive political blog in Michigan and one of the top progressive blogs in the country. We helped blow the lid off what was going on behind the scenes in the tragic Snyder experiment known as the Education Achievement Authority. We helped make Emergency Management a national news story. We’ve peeled back the veneer on Republican shenanigans time and time again.
We’ve also built up a truly diverse crew of writers who cover all types of topics from multiple perspectives, all of whom are paid for their fine work.
And, finally, we’ve started a weekly podcast — The GOTMFV Show — with an impressive array of guests like Ari Berman, Marcy Wheeler, Keith Ellison, and multi-millionaire Neil Hanauer.
None of this would have happened without YOU, our supporters. It is only because of the financial support of our readers and listeners that all of this is possible. We don’t cover the site in ads. There are no annoying popups or intrusive autoplay videos. It’s all content, paid for by YOU.
That’s why, as much as we hate to do it, we periodically have to ask you to make a donation. We think it’s a good investment because, frankly, LOOK WHAT YOU DID! IT’S AMAZING!
You can use the handy PayPal form at the top of the right sidebar to make a one-time donation via Paypal in the amount of your choice. Second, you can send a check (which avoids Paypal taking out a percentage of your donation) to Chris Savage, P.O. Box 32, Dexter, MI 48130. Please make the check payable to “Eclectablog”.
If you simply aren’t able to make a donation of any kind (and we appreciate support at ALL levels), please continue to share our posts throughout all of your social media platforms to ensure that the hard work of our most excellent staff is seen by as many folks as possible.
