Donation drive

Every two months, this site sends out an appeal to its readers for donations, which can be made through the “become a supporter” button at the top of the page. When it has its wits about it, it does so a few days before the end of the month to add some juice to payments that are received on a calendar month basis, but lately it (okay, I’ll stop now) has been so busy that I didn’t get round to it, so I could be singing for my supper at some point over the next few weeks.

The things that have been keeping me busy include some that might inspire you to toss me a few dollars if you’ve found them in any way rewarding: a South Australian election guide that can be viewed here, and live results reporting of the recent New South Wales by-elections. And obviously the site will have a lot to offer over the coming months, ahead of a South Australian election that’s a fortnight away from tomorrow followed not too long after by the big one, which can be anticipated between May 7 and May 21 according to various theories I’ve heard.
