Hello dear CrimeSpace denizens,
As you may or may not know, Ning.com, the company that provides the service to run CrimeSpace, started charging for the privilege last year. Between donations and money earned from ads, I didn't have to fork out too much to cover the $240 yearly charge.
That time of year has come again and the charge has gone through. I've received about $70 in donations over the last year, but as you can see that falls somewhat short of the yearly fee. So if any of you are feeling particular generous, please do feel free to scroll to the bottom of the main page and drop me a donation through the PayPal section hiding gently down there.
For those that are interested, here are Ning's pricing plans. CrimeSpace runs on the basic plan and there is a discount for paying an entire year upfront.
I'm pretty hands off when it comes to CrimeSpace these days, mostly on account of work demands, but I still constantly deal with approving new members (many of which are lovely ladies looking for love in all the wrong places) and it does involve some work on my part. Just sayin'.
Anyway, enough about me. Back to the crime talk!
If everyone chips in just a little bit, we'll hit this in no time. I plan to throw a few bucks in the pot. Come on, CrimeSpacers, let's keep this site going.
Just pitched in my donation. The donate button at the bottom is quick and easy.
Done. (Though I had to deal with Paypal!)
Thanks very much all, keep 'em coming! We're about half way there.
Done. Thank you for the work you do, it's a great place.
Thanks very much, David.
Will stick something on my blog this week.
Here's my blog post about it: http://www.crimefictionbook.com/apps/blog/show/17906250-will-you-he...
Thanks so much for that, Benjamin. Very chuffed by what you wrote.
Thanks so much for chipping in, everyone. I've had quite a few donations of varying amounts and we're now $40 away from the target for the year. I usually get a $5 donation here and there throughout the year, so I'm pretty happy with how this has turned out.
Thanks again to all those who donated!
