Yes, I know you're all dying to know --
This site is a labor of love for the people who write for it and do the tech support. Those of you who read it can help out. Yes, this is going to be one of those Public TV/Radio begging-for-support things, so please bear with me. It's Fundraising Friday.
Over the 4 years we've been here, most of the financial support for the site has come out of my own pocket. I'm not complaining about that, but what with the economic downturn and all, my pockets have been pretty empty lately. And there are a lot of projects to work on and fund. Some of you have been just great about this, writing for the blog, giving financial support, giving moral support, and I want you all to know how much this is appreciated.
Keeping a progressive infrastructure going needs more volunteers, and it needs money. So, in no particular order, these are things you can do to help out the progressive world in Wisconsin, and Uppity Wisconsin in particular:
- Write. I'm serious, this is the most important thing you can do. Pitch in. Sign up for a blogger account (just click on the Register To Blog button on the top of the site) and tell us a little about yourself, and we'll be happy to give you a blogging account (at least until you prove that you shouldn't have one). The more people who write here, the more eyeballs come to the site, and the more we get linked to, read, etc. Bloggers come and go, some write a lot, some very rarely. But if you have something to say about Wisconsin politics from the progressive viewpoint (and I'm pretty flexible about that) please write.
