TalkLeft Appreciation Days

Bumped: Thanks to all of you who have contributed. You've probably already received a thank you email from me. I'm going to keep this near the top until Friday, in case anyone else is interested in contributing. [More....]

About twice a year, I ask readers for donations to keep the site going. My last request was in January, and I appreciate all who donated.

It's time for me to ask again. TalkLeft is not an inexpensive venture, especially considering it is a hobby. I have been personally funding the site for 11 years, and since I eliminated paid advertisements a few years ago, the amount has been substantial.

Eventually, I will move the site to Wordpress and use a shared server to reduce costs, but we still haven't found a viable export solution for the 11 years of posts.

If you appreciate the time and effort that goes into my research and writing, or read and comment here frequently, I'd sincerely appreciate a contribution of whatever amount you are comfortable with donating. All amounts, even a few dollars, are welcome.

You can use Paypal, which also takes credit cards.

Thanks to all of you.

    what are TL friends for?  It's just a shame you and ruffian missed out on squeaky's gourmet dinner...he's the real host with the most!  All I did was drive and let you ladies buy me food and drink...an easier gig is hard to find;)

    Ooooh that driving did not look easy to me!!! (5.00 / 2) (#21)

    Thanks to Jeralyn, BTD, and all my TL friends - you have all added so much to my life in so many different ways -  knowledge every day, showing me around NY,  giving me a good chuckle on a bad day.  Happy to help support the site.

    for the donations and the compliments. This was a very successful drive, and I really appreciate it. In two weeks TalkLeft will turn 12 -- I think it's great that there are both veteran and new readers and commenters here -- I intend to keep it going as long as there is interest and I have something to say.

    Have a great weekend everyone.
