Last month, I was able to afford to have an IT guy take a look at the site and fix a few things. Hopefully, you’ve noticed. The site should load (and look better) on mobile devices now, for one. He also inserted some “click” ads, which, unfortunately, amount to me giving them free space to promote their stuff. I much prefer legitimate ads – for products I can personally vouch for (like V1 radar detectors, for instance).
But guys like Mike Valentine are the exception rather than the rule. Most want freeeeeeeee (or the nearest thing to it) space.
Which brings us back to you, the reader.
Independent, non-corporate media (that’s EPautos) relies on you, the reader, to keep things afloat.
To give you a handle on what that means, our dedicated server and backup costs about $250 a month. Yes, there are “virtual” and other less expensive servers. But those servers crash when you have traffic – which EPautos does. The site receives 200,000 visits on average a month. So we need a serious server.
Also, an IT dude. I just spent $500 to get the most urgently needed fixes fixed.
So, the bottom line is, I can’t do all this for free – much as I wish I could. I should probably have been a “good Republican” water-carrying shill (like Coulter or Hannity) back in the ’90s, when I could have… and become rich doing so.
Then I could afford to do this for free.
But then, you’d probably have zero interest in reading anything I wrote because you could’t trust a thing I wrote, my being an ex Republican shill. Which is kind of like being an ex-AIDs patient.
No such thing (assuming the thing in question is still living).
So, I need your help. I wish I didn’t, but I do.
Will you help us?
