A word (or two) with my readers
I’m not sure how many of you are aware of what it takes to keep this site bumping along, as aside from trying to write on a regular basis, I also try to keep the digests as well as third party articles uptodate as well.But it’s a damn lot of work. If I was to do it exactly as I’d like it to be, I think the better part of 8-10 hours per day would be needed as it involves not just importing/formatting articles to my liking, it’s also the aggregations that are a (tedious) killer! Yet they do get read and I can see from the stats that if I keep the site fully updated, it can double or even triple the number of daily readers.
But I’ve been at it for so long, nine years that sometimes I just get burned out by the daily grind. Worse still I’m not sure if it’s really worth it, unless you’re a journalist/researcher/writer/politico (and perhaps they should be paying for such as service?).
But I long ago gave up trying to get donations/subscriptions which is fine but in turn it would be nice to know that all my hard work is appreciated.
Anyway, whinge over. Normal service, whatever that is, will be resumed shortly…
