Donations – the thing that keeps EPautos afloat – are way down. Off by 75 percent compared with last month.
It is dire.
We’ve managed to secure a couple of advertising deals (Austin Coins and Valentine1) but we still rely on your support to make this a viable operation.
Our readership continues to grow. We now average around 100,000 people visiting EPautos each month. That is pretty tremendous – especially for a “small potatoes” operation with just two full-time workers (myself and Dom).
I always feel embarrassed about having to shake the cup at you guys, but the fact is that until we can secure six or seven solid advertisers this is the only way we can keep the site going. That’s the downside of having parted ways with the Google colossus. We’re free of them – but the price of that is having to find some other way to make this work financially.
I recognize that times are tough all around. I assure you they are tough here.
Hence these occasional appeals. I try not to bring up money unless it becomes absolutely necessary to do so. It has become absolutely necessary.
We need your support – badly.
As always, if even 10 percent of the site’s regular readers tossed us $10 or so a month, these appeals would not be necessary.
Please be one of the 10 percent.

Once again, thank you for your support – for making all this possible. One day, I hope to be able to host a get-together at our place to express my thanks in person. With any luck, that day will not be too far off in the future!
