Hey all, Do you think the site is good enough to receive some nominal donations now and then, even just once a year? If you aren't aware of it, I pay for this site out of my own pocket. Have been doing so for over 10 years now, and it is a joy to provide it to you for free. The costs have ranged between $50 to $120 per month in hosting, which boils down to thousands in costs. My short stint with my book which I sold a few years ago (not available right now) helped to defray these costs for a little while. Also, some ads helped out in lowering costs. But I have never really made a profit with the site, as that wasn't really the point. Any earnings went directly to hosting and maintenance. It's all been free for everyone who comes here, and I see it as always being free. Right now, I need your help. I've been doing this a long time on my own dime. Server fees (those fees hosting companies charge to make your site visible on the internet) are getting expensive. I'm between jobs right now, so I have to watch costs closely. So here is what I'm doing. I've gotta be practical, so I'm setting up a donation fund for the site. My goal is $1,200 or more within two weeks. This will cover hosting and admin fees for the entire year. The only other time I'd asked people to donate was in an emergency situation when the site could have possibly closed due to obsolete software. Many people very generously donated to the site. It was amazing and humbling. See that thread here: http://www.cuckoldsforum.com/index.php?posts/119125/ And once we reached the donation goal, I did not accept any more money. Out of necessity, I'm asking folks to show generosity once more. I love this site - quite proud of it, actually, and hope you are, too. The community is truly awesome, the moderators are amazing (Saturn does a fabulous job and asks nothing in return), and I love reading your stories. The reality is it costs money to run a site, (not to mention spending time as well) and that is a bit strained at the moment. If you feel the site has created value for you in your own life, donate to my Paypal address at email@example.com. Any amount is good. Even $10 will help. If only 30 people donate just $40, we'd be set for the year. Also, ideas are welcome for monetizing the site so we don't need to ask for donations from you anymore. If anyone has any other ideas for monetizing the site to take care of hosting and admin fees, I'm all ears. I've tried ads with limited success. Was thinking up a paid newsletter of some sort. Was going to set something up on Patreon, but I don't believe they allow sites like this to use their services, or their Terms of Service are extremely ambiguous. In any case, keep in mind that these donations are entirely voluntary. You are NOT required to donate to the site in any way. You can enjoy all of the free information and experiences for as along as you wish without concern. But if you feel generous, donate to firstname.lastname@example.org via PayPal. Also, the site is not going offline like it could have last time, so don't worry about that. Lastly, your information will never be shared. All donations are completely anonymous. Thanks, everyone. I'm proud to be your Kingbull.
