Friday Open Thread: All I Want for Christmas
It's all I want for Xmas. I'm convinced it will make me a happier person and a more dedicated and innovative blogger. So I'm sending out a Holiday fundraising request, because otherwise it's not in the cards for me this year.
If any of you want to send me a few dollars to buy one, or buy it for me, as a year-end show of appreciation or thanks, for personally funding TalkLeft the past 10 years and keeping it going 24/7, a contribution towards my new Mac within the next week would be a perfect way to express it -- and it would be awesome for me. Whether it's a few dollars, $10 or more, I'd truly be elated.
My last request for donations was in June, six months ago. Given the lack of ads on the site this year, TalkLeft has cost me thousands to maintain. Contributions are more important than ever just to keep the site running and fresh.
A second reason to give is more personal: If you've enjoyed the time you spend here and the friends you've made, sending a small donation towards my iMac (or if you can afford it, ordering me the new iMac) would make me eternally grateful, feel very appreciated and ensure I have a super happy holiday. Of course, don't feel obligated, I never hold it against readers who do not give. I realize these are tough economic times for all.
For those who don't like paypal, here's my snailmail address.
What are you hoping for this Christmas?
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
