Update 314: Started the day with a big Bump Thanks to Lisa & Tom 24% down $1670 to go
Update 313 Thanks to Ros­alie today and Steve 14% down $1895 to go And thanks to The Lonely con­ser­v­a­tive, Smitty and the Lib­erty Net­work for shoutouts.

Update 3: A big bump in the fundraiser Thank to Mark and Linda we are below the $2000 Mark 11% down $1950 to go. Day two ends with Bob kick­ing in to get me up to 12% with $1930 to go.

You might recall I made a ref­er­ence to my cur­rent finan­cial sit­u­a­tion last week in the mid­dle of a series of post. Usu­ally when one holds a bleg you tend to push it to the top and pro­mote it via e-​mail etc. I decided to hold off because I thought the news of the week trumped my sit­u­a­tion for the read­er­ship and with folks like my friend Zilla in straits I hes­i­tated to push my sit­u­a­tion in a heavy way, but the bot­tom line is assert­ing itself so it’s time to speak plainly.

As I’ve already stated the radio show has man­aged to pay for itself and even man­aged a small profit last year, but it still hasn’t been enough to pay for the sup­port of the house. I closed out my last 401k with the inten­tion of using that to cover extra expenses for about six months as the sales team to kick in to sell out the show allow­ing me a small paycheck.

Unfor­tu­nately a hitch kicked in on the sales team delay­ing things a month or two, mean­while in addi­tion to the Lap­top issue the Wash­ing Machine broke need­ing replace­ment, the oil whis­tle (required to pre­vent a spill that would bring the FDA to the house) required fix­ing and of course there thanks to the increas­ing price of oil and gas the bills for these com­modi­ties have been prohibitive.

And then my wife’s work hours were cut just in time for the increased oil bills and the taxes

Bot­tom line the reserves that I counted on to hold me at least through June have an excel­lent chance of being exhausted early and if one of the any one of the 12+ year old cars go much ear­lier and if it wasn’t for the kind­ness of my reader Dan from Fitch­burg and this old lap­top XP lap­top blog­ging would be at almost a stand­still. I’m not in a posi­tion to make a pas­sive bleg.

So this is going to stay on top for a bit as I try to hit my $2200 goal, I’m hop­ing to make the goal by the 20th and any help you can give would be most wel­come. I’d like to think I pro­vide value to the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment through the blog, but also gen­eral value to all my read­ers from my cov­er­age of events to my diner reviews.

Update: Thanks to Joseph we are at $60 just under 3% of our total. Update 2: And thank you to Bob for mak­ing it over 3% BTW once we get to 5% I’ll put the updates on top and at 10% I’ll shrink the post.

Update 3/15: The ides of March starts with Gaston 24% down $1660 to go

Update 3/14: Started the day with a big Bump Thanks to Lisa & Tom 24% down $1670 to go
Update 3/13 Thanks to Rosalie today and Steve 14% down $1895 to go And thanks to The Lonely conservative, Smitty and the Liberty Network for shoutouts.

Update 3: A big bump in the fundraiser Thank to Mark and Linda we are below the $2000 Mark 11% down $1950 to go. Day two ends with Bob kicking in to get me up to 12% with $1930 to go.

You might recall I made a reference to my current financial situation last week in the middle of a series of post. Usually when one holds a bleg you tend to push it to the top and promote it via e-mail etc. I decided to hold off because I thought the news of the week trumped my situation for the readership and with folks like my friend Zilla in straits I hesitated to push my situation in a heavy way, but the bottom line is asserting itself so it’s time to speak plainly.

As I’ve already stated the radio show has managed to pay for itself and even managed a small profit last year, but it still hasn’t been enough to pay for the support of the house. I closed out my last 401k with the intention of using that to cover extra expenses for about six months as the sales team to kick in to sell out the show allowing me a small paycheck.

Unfortunately a hitch kicked in on the sales team delaying things a month or two, meanwhile in addition to the Laptop issue the Washing Machine broke needing replacement, the oil whistle (required to prevent a spill that would bring the FDA to the house) required fixing and of course there thanks to the increasing price of oil and gas the bills for these commodities have been prohibitive.

And then my wife’s work hours were cut just in time for the increased oil bills and the taxes

Bottom line the reserves that I counted on to hold me at least through June have an excellent chance of being exhausted early and if one of the any one of the 12+ year old cars go much earlier and if it wasn’t for the kindness of my reader Dan from Fitchburg and this old laptop XP laptop blogging would be at almost a standstill. I’m not in a position to make a passive bleg.

So this is going to stay on top for a bit as I try to hit my $2200 goal, I’m hoping to make the goal by the 20th and any help you can give would be most welcome. I’d like to think I provide value to the conservative movement through the blog, but also general value to all my readers from my coverage of events to my diner reviews.

Update: Thanks to Joseph we are at $60 just under 3% of our total. Update 2: And thank you to Bob for making it over 3% BTW once we get to 5% I’ll put the updates on top and at 10% I’ll shrink the post.
