Fund Raising 2009 Edition
« on: January 05, 2009, 10:12:50 AM »
The site renews on March 23rd. I've asked for a bill so I know the specific amount but if it is the same as last year, with the deflated dollar, this years costs will be 572.86.

we currently have a donation of 40.00 and ad revenue 52 dollars in the kitty. Most ads don't pay out till they reach a certain threshold so I will have to check the various one we have and see where they stand.  However with the current monies that brings it down to 480.96

Yet another bumpity bump.

We had a little burp there -- some will have noticed. See how important it is that Mama gets some love? Mama ain't happy, ain't noooo-body happy.   ;)

Srsly, she wouldn't do that. But the down times always remind me of how vulnerable we are, and also how valuable this place and everyone here is.

Friendships, connections, blogging ideas, calls to activist actions...priceless

Cost to run the site that provides it, about $500US

Won't you please make a donation to keep our corner of the web safe?  :bunny  :dog_wagging:  :bigeyes:  :beg:

well me I'm only five feet .....OH the site  ;)

Well this is my dilemma. I'm thinking of moving to hostgator where costs would be almost 400 dollars cheaper. I haven't tried the board at Hostgator but I've heard good things.

As hosting would be less than 200 dollars CDN a year compared to over 6 here, I could handle it on my own if I had to.

right now we have 150 towards a bill of  607$

If we move then we have 150 towards a bill of approx 216$(which includes domain costs)

Debra, I'm not going to be able to contribute for a few more months, until Webgeek finishes his program and starts bringing in some cash to the household.
