Last night we reached – and surpassed – our ambitious $10,000 donation goal for our State of the Blog fundraiser. Nearly 300 loyal readers stepped up the plate and donated and we couldn’t be more thankful to each and every one of you. The outpouring of support was both humbling and encouraging in terms of the quantity and volume of your contributions. We are indebted to all of you and hope to make our coverage this year as strong as ever.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure if the goal was even realistic when the drive started, considering it was much higher than we’ve reached in past fundraisers. Two-thirds of the way through, it still looked like we’d fall short. But the final push over the last 48 hours of the fundraiser netted more than 20% of our goal from an impressive 66 contributors.
Once again, thanks for your support and we promise to do everything within our power to make this a great year on the site.
