OK maybe they don’t win but things will be a bit easier for them.
I have expanded the reading base for the site by writing for all four Breitbart sites, Right Wing News, Red State, and Liberty Pundits, while continuing my association with Pajamas Media and American Thinker but through it all the number one priority and the first place scoops appear has been the Lid.
While I have added advertising to the site traffic is still not up to a level that will generate enough ad revenue to keep the site running as a full time endeavor (it up 50% vs this time last year and just during the past month has begun to be recognized by some big websites and news organizations).
While I continue to work on building traffic/ad revenue and search for some paid writing gigs, until, that happens, “The Lid” Needs to Raise Some Money To Keep Delivering the best Common Sense Political and Middle East News. Its not just for the site maintenance etc, but I need to bring money into the household.
To Put it Bluntly without Some capital I will have to close down in about three months. Man does not live by clicks alone and neither does his family. Since I first started this request for donations last week many of you have given generously and I appreciate it very much, but donations are not where they need to be for the best (IMHO), and free blog, to continue past first quarter.
I hate having to do this but, PLEASE, CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION TO THE TIP JAR (see the left hand column on the blog) so this blog can continue.
If only 1/4 of the 6,000+ regular readers of this make a donation of $36 dollars, it will generate enough revenue to allow me to keep “The Lid” going for at least the rest of 2011 as I continue to build the traffic, ad revenue and supplement the site with paid writing gigs. Any amount, however, will be a big help!
