At the end of every second month, this site rattles the tin at its valued readers in a thus far successful effort to keep its head above water. Never has it done so in circumstances quite so unpromising as at present. So if you can find it in your hearts and/or wallets to do so now, it will be appreciated more than ever. While there are obviously a great many out there who are doing it a lot worse than I am, the general situation of the blog is analogous to the media as a whole, in that traffic is booming (comments activity has just about doubled) while revenue sags. This arrives on top of what was already a challenging period of election drought going back to the federal election last May, followed by no state elections until the one that will be held in Queensland in October.

If any of that tugs at your heart strings, please make use of the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post. There are also some of you out there who are still in my system as donors but whose payments are not being processed due to expired credit cards — if that sounds like you, you can update your details by logging in at PressPatron and clicking on “edit payment” under “payment details” on the “My Contributions” page.

If you encounter technical problems, which have been known to crop up from time to time, please drop me a line at pollbludger-AT-bigpond-DOT-com.

At the end of every second month, this site rattles offers a gentle reminder to its valued readers that it relies on their patronage to survive and prosper. Donations are gratefully received at all times, though perhaps especially during the lean periods between elections, like this one (though minor relief is on the way in the form of Queensland and Northern Territory by-elections and the Brisbane council and lord mayoral elections). They can be made by clicking on the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post. If you are having technical problems with the donation facilities, which have been known to crop up from time to time, please drop me a line at pollbludger-AT-bigpond-DOT-com.

At the end of every second month, this site rattles the tin to gently remind its valued readers of its reliance on their patronage. If it tugs at your heart or (better yet) purse strings to know, ad revenue has fallen nearly 90% since the election – although the starting point was low enough that that’s probably not as big a deal as it sounds. In any case, donations are gratefully received via the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post.
