I just wanted to say a public Thank You to everyone who kicked in a buck or twenty to help me pay for LISNews. Over the years LISNews has cost me hundreds of dollars, but this year will be different thanks to everyone listed below. I'll send out personal thank yous to everyone, but I also wanted to let everyone else know LISNews is all paid up for 2007.
Long time readers of LISNews news know that LISNews isn't a big corporation, it's an all volunteer effort. We're just a bunch of bloggers who post stories in our spare time. Over the past 7 years we've moved from server to server, and while we've found a good home finally, it's not free. I alone pay to keep things running, and do all the work on the backend. I pay $40 a month for hosting, and though I really do love LISNews like a son, I can't afford to throw away 500 bucks a year, so this year, like some years in the past, I'm asking for your help.
Last year the Google Ads paid for the server, but this year I'd like to keep it ad free if possible, and go begging for the $500+ I need to pay for hosting (minus the taxes I pay on the money I raise) our little community.
You can use the PayPal Link Here, my address is Here as well if you'd like to send a check, or let me know if you'd like to help in another way.
Update: 01/05 13:27 GMT by B :I think we're about half way there already! Thanks to everyone who has helped so far.
Looks like we're about there. Assuming a few checks show up in the mail LISNews will cost me very little this year.
Many thanks to everyone who helped this year!! I'll be emailing thanks, and make one more post next week.
Thanks to everyone who chipped in!M.G.
And last but not least the annonymous person who put a Canadian $10 bill in an envolope!
