Our fundraising effort to keep the blog running for another 12 months is entering its 5th week (Go Diplopundit 2016). We’ve reached the halfway mark on February 10 but have so far raised 38% of the funding goal. There are still four weeks to go so we are cautiously optimistic but also realistic. We have more readers than ever before but the donation/ad revenue hybrid to fund the blog is difficult to sustain.
Last year was a gift that extended the blog’s presence for 12 months. We could still get funded (or win the lottery, hey :-)) but this year could also be an already familiar story from the past.
In any case, we will see GFM II through until March 10. This is the year when we’re going to just let the river run as the song goes. You know best whether our work is of value to you or not. If it is, and if your circumstances allow it, we could use your help to carry on for another year. Thanks!
