I usually post the obligatory fundraising post at the beginning of each month and readers who've enjoyed the site chip in a few dollars to help keep things up and running.
I've never suggested a donation amount; I know times are rough right now and wouldn't want anyone to feel like they'd have to meet a certain dollar amount to be appreciated. Several of you have written lately though to ask me "How much should I give?"
Of course, any amount is appreciated. We're working on a shoestring budget around here; we've had to let go of our only other paid staff member and, quite frankly, it's about time to start making some hard decisions. As long as y'all are helping to pay the basics - rent, food, etc - I'm willing to keep producing content and guiding Bilerico and our contributors to greater and greater things. Otherwise, it's time for me to get a job that'll keep a roof over my head; I may be skinny but I still have to eat.
How do I answer the readers who write in? I ask them, "How much do you think Bilerico Project is worth?" To help you decide, we've created this handy guide to determining how much you think our award winning journalism benefits you.
(Big thanks go out to Greg ($10) and Yoshi ($100) for their December donations - without any prodding!)
If you're so inclined, please drop some dollars in our bucket. I can promise you that none of it will go to the Salvation Army. It's a completely different kind of bucket. *grins*
Thanks for all you do to help us keep Bilerico Project up and running.
