Day 1: First Quarter fundraiser – Please help us to help YOU!


Please feed the bloggers

It’s that time a year again where we come to you, hat in hand, and ask you to help support the important work we do here at Eclectablog. Unlike most blog sites, the regular contributors — Anne, Amy, LOLGOP, and Gary Abud, Jr. — are paid for their work. It’s not nearly as much as I would like and not nearly as much as they are worth but it’s a model I insist upon because we have to compensate folks for their creative works or they may not be there for us when we need them.

Just like Eclectablog.

Regular readers know that we work tirelessly to hold Republicans and tea partiers and corporatists accountable for their harmful actions. We keep you informed, help you to understand complex topics, and give you ways to talk about the issues when you’re debating and discussing them with others.

We know it’s working because we hear back from our readers about it regularly

Please consider making a small contribution to what we do here so that we can keep being there for YOU. There are three ways to do that.

First, you can make your donation using the PayPal link below. You can change the amount if you wish.


Or you can wait until the TinyPass pop-up pops up (every tenth click on the site) and donate that way. If you do that, the popups will go away as long as you have cookies enabled. Again, the default amounts for annual or monthly donations can be adjusted to whatever you wish them to be.

Finally, if you would prefer to send a check, send me an email and I’ll give you the address. This is them most beneficial way for us because it avoids the Paypal and Tinypass fees that are taken from contributions to the site.

If you cannot afford to support us financially, you can still help. Please share our content on your Facebook page or other social media like Twitter, Reddit, etc. Put a “Like” on our Facebook page and click the “Invite friends” button and encourage your friends to like us, too.

Thanks so much,
Chris, Anne, LOLGOP, Amy, and Gary
