Well, after two days of the fundraising drive, we’re over 19% toward the $2,500 goal. I’d like to extend a big thank you to the 22 donors so far. I greatly appreciate your generosity.
The level of contributions is more or less in line with any similarly sized drive, as far as I can tell, but I will admit that 22 people doesn’t seem like very many when you consider that over 3,000 people read Seattle Bubble each of the last two days. (This is the obligatory guilt-trip part of the fundraising drive.)
Remember that your contributions help allow me to dedicate more time to bringing continuous improvements to Seattle Bubble. We’re talking extra content, spiffy tools, and useful resources. You are helping to evolve Seattle Bubble into an even more useful and valuable tool for the local housing market.
Just 100 people (less than 4 percent of the usual weekday readership) contributing $25 would be enough to achieve the entire goal. Of course, I completely understand that donating to a free website is not likely to be high on most people’s to-do list, which is why most public TV and radio pledge weeks take forever to reach their goals as well, despite having far, far, more viewers/listeners than a niche website like this. That being said, every donation is appreciated, and brings us that much closer to reaching the goal. Even $10 lets me know that you appreciate the effort that I am putting in daily to bring you the latest comprehensive look at the local housing market.
Thanks for your support.
