Some readers have written us in the last couple of weeks offering to help keep the blog online. I have told them as I’ve told you that we will not go the route of crowdfunding again. I suck at raising funds, I do not want to disappoint the blog’s core supporters and it would make walking away harder. See 4,000th! And now, the end is near …
A blog pal who is funny,and brave, also known as OneFSO has decided to set up a fundraising page via the GoFundMe website: http://www.gofundme.com/savediplopundit. AnotherFSO who is thoughtful, and persistent is working to “bundle” pledges on the blog’s behalf. These friends are working together in an attempt to keep the blog alive. And yes, I know them but for prudent reasons we’ll go by their campaign nicknames. I’m letting them run with it with one request that they do an “All or Nothing” campaign. It would help keep the peace in my house.
If you have sent donations to this blog via PayPal in the last couple of weeks, I have not accepted and will decline those funds. However, if you are still thinking of helping the blog, you may support OneFSO’s Keep Diplopundit Alive campaign instead of using PayPal. If the campaign does not reach its funding goal, it will not collect any funds.
Okay, that’s it for housekeeping updates. Hey, look — catzilla! — Domani Spero [twitter-follow screen_name=’Diplopundit’ ]
