Day 5 – 4th Quarter fundraiser – Prizes! Prizes! Prizes!


Oops, we did it again

I’ll keep the blah, blah to a minimum today. You know why we’re doing this: blogging doesn’t pay much and we have expenses to pay. We’ve already made a lot of improvements but, as yesterday showed, when we get slammed by traffic, the servers we’re on still struggle to keep up. At one point yesterday, this piece was getting over 500 hits per minute and the server said “screw it” and shut down. Poor thing. The next step for us will cost money.

So, that’s why we come to you four times a year to ask you to ask for your help. Every little bit helps. If you get value from what we do at Eclectablog, please consider making a donation.


To make things more interesting, if you make a donation of $25 or more, we are going to do a drawing for five sets of signed photomosaic posters of Barack Obama, original creations by our own Anne C. Savage. Her first one ran as a full two-page spread in Time magazine and has been used for book covers, in other magazines and for posters. This year, she has a new one. The posters arrived yesterday and they are amazing! Make a donation of $25 or more and be entered into a drawing for one of five two-poster sets (an Anne will sign them, too!)

Here’s what the new one looks like. Click the image to go to a page where you can see the faces up close.

You can make your donation using this handy Paypal link (you can change the amount if you wish):


If you would prefer to send a check and need our address, send an email to me at eclectablog at gmail period com.

Thanks for your support. We truly do appreciate it.

P.S. Can’t afford even a small donation? Please consider sharing links to posts you find here on your social media sites. And don’t forget to invite your friends to put a “Like” on our Facebook page, too! Thanks.
