When I look at this picture I get a little goosepimply. When I first started blogging, it was a one-dude show and it was pretty amateur at that. However, bit by bit, Eclectablog has grown into something substantial, something useful, and something that is changing the conversation in important ways. Everyone in the photo contributes to that and I’m proud of what we’ve built together.
The best part of all of this is how we’re creating a community at Eclectablog. In addition to our staff of writers, we now have regular commenters who add to the quality of your experience here. We have a surprisingly low level of troll activity and that has helped to foster a safe place for people to comment, ask questions, and to add their perspective.
And we’re not done building and growing. It is my goal to add another writer to our group in the next year so long as we’re bringing in enough revenue to support it.
That’s where YOU come in. If you’d like to join those who find what we do here at Eclectablog worthy of supporting financially, there are three ways to help.
First, you can make your donation using the PayPal link below. You can change the amount if you wish. The default is $50 which is basically $1 per week, a pretty good value.
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. They are currently set to be around $1 per week. Again, it’s a great value.
Finally, if you would prefer to send a check, send me an email and I’ll give you the address. This is the 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 for your support,
Chris, Anne, Amy, LOLGOP, Emma, and Charles
