The Number One Reason I Ask Readers for Contributions

Because I hated, for years, that I had to send stuff like this to readers trying to boost the ad revenue of the site.

We are not in a strong financial position here, right now, and I’m spending a lot of money out of pocket. I have yet to earn any income off this site. But I would still rather shutter it than have to go back to this. We have sent a few here I cringed at and I just had to stop. I know sites have to do what they have to do. In addition to having a number of sponsors refuse to advertise because of our right-wing politics here, we have had a solid number of our sponsors harassed by Trump voters, which caused even more shuttering of sponsorships.
