I do not like to do this. I feel like a failure every single time I do. But it is also the nature of compromises. We don't want to do pop-ups or semi-porn ads or all the other things that are actually pretty financially lucrative. As a result, I must come to you, the readers, and ask you to help us keep the lights on.
We have have found new ways of monetization, including putting ads in our podcast. But while we are headed in the right direction as revenue and traffic are both increasing, we are not yet at the break even point and Philip, who you never see, but who steers the site daily, needs a paycheck.
I do not like to ask you for your money, but I continue to believe we are both on the right track and providing a service of focusing on conservative grassroots and policy beyond cults of personality. So I thank you in advance and ask for your help.
