Day 1: 4th Quarter Fundraiser – If you like it, then you should put some “ching” on it


On an average day, roughly 5,000 people stop by Eclectablog. Sometimes it’s a bit less and, when we do something that REALLY gets attention, it’s way more.

That’s a lot of people who are better informed because of the work we do here. Whether it’s breaking news that you haven’t seen elsewhere like today’s piece on cronyism in the state Attorney General’s office, holding Republicans accountable for their shenanigans, or giving you a fresh perspective on state and national issues, Eclectablog is unparalleled in its scope.

What we don’t do is hide behind a paywall. Instead, we put our stuff out there and then, for a week every quarter, we ask you to put a price tag on the value you get here and, to quote Beyoncé, “put a ring on it”. Or, more accurately, put some “ching” on it.

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, Tony, Emma, and Charles
