Unfortunately another year has rolled by, we are all a bit older, and ESMB has to pay for its hosting for another year.
The good news is that it won't be so bad this year. I have already received some donations before today (a big thanks to Lohan especially) and also have some $$ left over from the legal defence money. I did send out emails to all donors asking what they wanted to do with their donation but I still haven't heard from everyone. Most people were happy to donate to Nick Xenophon so I sent $2000 a few months ago. For those who didn't reply this is your last chance to either get it back or give it to Nick. If I don't hear from you I'll be using it to help fund ESMB for 2012.
I'm currently negotiating with Siteground to see what deal they will offer me and once I know what the costs will be, and what I've already got to put towards it, I'll give you the details & put up a pledgie button as usual.
It's usually around USD $2500 per year. This year I'll have close to $1000 already so I we'll only need to raise around $1500 I think.
BTW....I freaking HATE doing this. Every year I hate it and it never gets easier.
