Will Blog For Food

We really hate to do this but we have to reach out with our begging cup and ask all our members to please donate to the operations of this blog. Our annual hosting service contract is coming due at the end of this month and we need to scrape up $300 before then or we will go off the air. We have managed to pay off our domain registration and about $200 in other related costs from the (meagre) revenues from the BlogAds. Maybe one day we can charge $2000 per ad like the Evil Puppy Blender, Glenn Reynolds. Until then, we have to rely on our readers to help us out a little. Our annual costs for this blog run around $1000, including everything mentioned above plus all kinds of nit-picking expenses (like the $500 Allan had to put up last month to retain the services of a lawyer after we received several threats of lawsuits).

In short, we cover most of the costs associated with this blog, provide it to you all free of charge and only ask for your assistance occasionally. God, I hate to sound like NPR or PBS begging for money. Somebody please shoot me!

Anyway, that’s the story. Donate whatever you can through PayPal or Amazon (links below and in the right sidebar - don’t worry, it is a secure transaction). Whether it’s $5, $10, $20, $50, $100 - whatever you can spare. Hell, we’ll even take a donation of $1,000,000 if you can spare it. This blog receives absolutely no money from any political party, political action committee or any politically-oriented organization. Not a dime. That keeps us honest.

So give us a hand, OK? Don’t make us show up at your house with a sign that says “WILL BLOG FOR FOOD!”

Vilmar & Allan

“If you don’t send these guys some money right now, then I promise you that Howard Dean and I will harass you all mercilessly and scream in your face every chance we get .... and .... Ted Kennedy and John Kerry will help us drive you crazy .... and .... YEARRRGGHHHHHH!!”

“Send us money and I’ll show you my tatas!”

FLASH! NEWS UPDATE!: Your money may be infected with a killer virus. Send it to us immediately for disinfection!






Apology: Sorry about the PayPal link. It has been fixed. Now get busy and get out that checkbook!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
