Regular readers of the blog or listeners of the Sit and Spin Room podcast know that we are big on the Resistance these days. We recognize and exalt the import work being done by Indivisible Groups, NationalADAPT and their various chapters, and all the other incredible grassroots organizers who are changing the conversation when it comes to the debate about the Affordable Care Act and the odious pile of steaming scat known as Trumpcare.
But there are many ways to resist and they don’t all involve sit-ins or rallies or holding signs and yelling. Those things are important – ESSENTIAL! – but there are simple ways, too. And one of those ways is to support websites like ours.
Our costs here at Eclectablog increase each year so if our revenues decrease, well, that’s a problem. We pay $80 a month to host the podcast. We pay $20 a month for distributed hosting which keeps us up and running when we get hit with a lot of traffic or a get hammered by a distributed denial of service attack. We pay another $20 a month for website security to protect us from hackers from all around the world from taking us down or infecting the site with iCooties. We pay nearly $100 a month in magazine and newspaper subscriptions. And most importantly, each month I write several hundred dollars in checks to our writers to compensate them for their fine and important work.
None of that is possible with support from the community of readers and supporters that we are nurturing.
Please consider making even a small contribution and join the growing community of supporters here at Eclectablog. One really terrific way to support us is to make a recurring monthly donation. You can choose your monthly giving level using this form:
There are two other ways to help, as well. First, 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 are able to help support us financially, we would be most grateful. There was never a more easy way to #resist. Thank you for your support.
