About the 2011 Donation Drive
I skipped the donation drive last year. I spent quite a lot of time reflecting if the blog was the best use of my time. Quite honestly for several weeks I considered walking away – even going as far as researching how to sell the blog and writing a draft announcing that it was going up for sale. I’d say the turning point was on April 18 – the day the Pulitzers were announced. I posted the news and settled back into my day job when I received a text message from an editorial cartoonist I had met at the previous year’s AAEC convention. I was surprised to get his text because we hadn’t talked to since the convention. We exchanged a few messages regarding our opinions/observations about the announcement. The exchange made me realize once again the blog is a connection to a community and people that I cared about and I appreciated that someone from that community had reached out to me.
I’m sure you all have your own reasons why you visit regularly. It’s a news source, a community or the industry water cooler. For whatever reason you make this a regular read, I thank you for including the blog in your day.
If the blog is of any value to you, I’d appreciate it if you’d make a donation to help keep it going.
As in previous donation drives, I’ll list the names of those donors* on the home page along with a link to their website, book, or project. It’s a small token of appreciation.
Thank you all again.
* Donations by default are private. After donating you should arrive on a Thank You page where you can specify if you’d like me to mention your name. Once permission is granted, I’ll add your name and link to the homepage.
