Call for donations: just help us through the first 3 months

Post date: 07 April 2012
Blessed Easter Sunday!

We were able to raise a little over $200 from our first wave of call for donations (90% of which came from our Write Jobs blog followers) and we're sincerely thankful for the support. The donations were used to pay a small honorarium to our blog designer and volunteers who helped us set up our search and alert tools, and backtrack to as far as mid-2011 announcements that we missed when we temporarily stopped operations.

We urge you to support the work we do and the service we provide - just through the first 3 months as we try to sort out how else we can source funds to keep our blogs alive. Perhaps, you are already an established writer or you can find opportunities somewhere else, but we would like to exist and keep running our resource sites for young and emerging writers who check our blogs daily hoping to find an opportunity where they can hopefully be recognized.

A small donation will go a long way. We won't promise to send you the Hot Jobs reports right away as we're still trying to raise funds to hire a few more people for encoding and proofing - but we're targeting to release it in a few weeks. This new blog design is final - and we can focus on the Hot 500 project from today.

Thank you very much in advance.
