You may recall it was around this time last year that we asked subscribers to dig down deep to help us meet operating costs. Believe it or not, it REALLY COSTS SOMETHING to reserve a URL and get all this great content hosted somewhere OTHER THAN BLOGGER. We’ll save you the lengthy diatribe about keeping the web neutral and go right to the ultimatum…our PayPal is EMPTY. What this means is that come the new year ALL THIS AWESOME CONTENT GOES BYE BYE. We had a nice chat with our hosting provider, and apparently $97.00 is the cheapest yearly hosting package they offer, and that DOESN’T include the $10.00 for the domain name. Of course there are cheaper deals out there, but last year a dear friend of ours spent HOURS migrating our content to a new host and making it all work, so we’re afraid we’ve burnt that bridge.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU, valued subscriber?
Well…assuming we have nothing of value lined up for the new year (and you know THAT aint so) you might just want to get busy hitting our many many links before we vanish into the ether.
Otherwise, you could DO THE RIGHT THING and mash the “DONATE” button at the bottom of the page.
You’ll feel good about it, and you’ll really enjoy all the Mississippi and Ocora records we’ve got planned for the new year.
Peace and Joy,
