The below crowdfunding campaign has finished and was unsuccessful and no money was raised. It was at least 12 months before its time. This site will continue for the forseeable future and I believe it is not to far off before I can work on it full-time. Thank you very much to the people who supported the campaign. If you would still like to donate it would be appreciated. The details and link are on the donation page. (Click here to go to the donation page)
I have set up a crowdfunding campaign on the website Pozible. While this site is showing a lot of promise and grows everyday it is still a long way off before I could work on the site full-time. (Click here to go to campaign page)
The idea of the campaign is to expedite this websites growth and allow me to work on it full-time for at least the next 12 months depending on how much is raised. Pledges will only be processed if the minimum target of $60,000 is met in the time frame of 40 days.
It went live at midday today and will finish at 12pm on Monday the 19th of November. If you would like to make a pledge it would be greatly appreciated. I know some people can not afford it so maybe you would like to help promote the campaign. The link you can use for emails to friends and Facebook etc is: http://pozible.com/kcoa2012 Please do not put the link on other peoples websites as they have their own funding issues.
I decided to do it like this as it accountable for all to see and gives some certainty about where I am heading.
I will put updates on this page and at the bottom of the posts I do until the campaign is finished.
The website New Matilda needed money to keep going or they would close and used Pozible in 2010 and raised $175,000. So I believe at least $60,000 is achievable.
I have a long-term funding plan with books and t-shirts etc. But while this grows, it is not there yet.
As regular readers know this site started in January last year and for the first 20 months I only made money from selling my book and t-shirts. Those sales have only started to cover costs the last few months. I added a donation button 2 months ago and while that has helped I could not live off it.
I believe what I do adds a lot of value to the media landscape and believe I can drive change with the support of enough people. This site now has over 1670 followers. If enough of you throw your support behind the campaign it will be a success. I will be promoting the campaign other ways as well.
I am in the process of setting up a “Supporters Wall” page for people who have donated and would like their name on there.
