So, many of you may know that in my free (hah!) time, I’m the lead copyeditor for Persephone Magazine. P-Mag and UfYH are what I love; I do something else to pay the bills.
Unlike other ladyblogs, P-Mag is not backed by a vast media empire or a rich benefactress who signs the checks. There are no checks, because we’re an entirely volunteer staff. Which is great, because we all love the work we’re doing, and not answering to an entity like rhymes-with-Bawker means we can write about what we love and not what’s going to garner rage-pageviews.
However, it means that some months, we pay the server bills out of our pockets to make up for the gap in ad revenue. So I’m asking a totally voluntary and totally big favor: If you stumble across some spare change while you’re unfucking in the next few weeks or so, consider donating it to P-Mag. I know that lots of you have bought the app, and lots of you will buy the Android app (soon! I’m really really trying to get it out as quickly as possible!), and many of you have donated directly to UfYH through the homepage, which I appreciate wholeheartedly.
But I really believe in what Persephone Magazine is doing, and what we’re all about, and we all work really hard to bring good content to our readers. But the server gets hungry, so if you have a few bucks that you unearthed from between the couch cushions, I’d consider it a personal favor if you’d help support a smaller, independent ladyblog that’s a huge part of my life. But no pressure. I’ll still love you even if there are no pennies to spare. I’ve been there.
