Eclectablog can’t be bought and paid for, but we still have bills to pay


Who needs ads when we have supporters like you? Let’s keep it that way and protect independent journalism.

By now, you’ve figured out this is fundraising week at Eclectablog. Before you navigate away from this page, consider this:

Eclectablog remains almost entirely ad-free because of donations from readers like you. Not only that, LOLGOP and Eclectablog produce a terrific podcast every week that brings you insights from some of America’s leading progressive voices — at a time when you need their wisdom (and a few laughs) the most.

Surely it’s worth a few bucks to help Eclectablog remain (mostly) ad-free and produce an outstanding blog and podcast. Plus, Eclectablog pays its contributors for our work, something many other online outlets don’t do.

Look, I can’t say it any better than my fellow Eclectabloggers have this week, particularly LOLGOP. If you haven’t read his post, treat yourself to a truly lovely tribute from one friend to another.

Then find a few extra dollars and give a little. In a country where it seems that everything has a price these days, it’s nice to know there are a few things left uncorrupted.

Even a small contribution helps. One 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. As Mitchell Robsinson put it, every dollar and voice counts. Thank you for your support.

Short on cash? We get it, but even sharing our content far and wide helps. Google, Twitter, and Facebook have changed their algorithms significantly in the past year, and fewer people are seeing our content in Google searches and on social media.
