I am typing these words – and transmitting them to you – via an increasingly gimpy eight-year-old iMac desktop that I think is not long for this world. I get the “spinning ball” thing more and more often. It seizes up and the only way I can get it to work again is by defibrillating it (that is, by unplugging it and then plugging it back in).
Toward the purchase of which will go all reader contributions for the month of January. Hopefully, it’ll be enough. You guys have come through many times in the past when times were desperate. And I’m optimistic you’ll do so again come January.
I’d also like to take this moment to ask for your help in another way. As many of you already know, I am currently doing everything here. The writing and editing and formatting, as well as the technical “site maintenance” – to the extent I am able (which isn’t much). I am also trying to market and promote the site – so we get more advertisers, so that I can ease off asking you guys to chip in. But – frankly – it’s too much for one dude to do, let alone do well.
So, I am putting out the call:
EPautos could really use tech support as well as help with marketing and promotion. Tor (a regular here) has already tossed his hat in the ring (huge thanks to him!) and others have helped as they are able, including Mith (another regular) who helped me to make the EPautos stickers a reality.
The “big one” is help with securing advertising. And it could be a paid gig. EPautos has the traffic. I just don’t have sufficient time (or expertise) to effectively gin up advertisers. If anyone out there might be interesting it giving this a shot, please drop me a line ([email protected]) and let’s talk!
