Mac Musings

Thank You, Low End Mac Supporters!

Daniel Knight - 2012.08.23 -

Let me begin by saying a huge Thank You! to all of you Low End Mac readers who came through in our time of need. After we shared our dire financial situation, we received an outpouring of support.

Over the past three weeks, over 145 of you have made donations via PayPal, QuickPay, or a check in the mail. Donations from loyal site fans ranged from $1 to $100, and we truly appreciate each and every donation. (If you missed out on the first round, don't sweat it. You can still make a contribution to Low End Mac as detailed on our Support page.)

Looking ahead, we hope to have WordPress up and running in the near future, which will allow our staff to write, submit, edit, and publish articles a lot more quickly (you can read more about it in Low End Mac Needs a Content Management System). This should mean more timely posting of new content and allow us to add several more writers. And that will all mean more contebnt for you, more traffic for us, and more site income too.

I've got a small team helping me with WordPress. We hope to have forums to replace our current Google Groups communities, allow comments with articles, and work on some social networking integration, like letting Facebook and Twitter users login with those IDs. We also hope to make it pretty spam-proof using Akismet. We'll let you know when that's ready to go.

Again, we couldn't do this without your support. Simply reading the site helps, of course, as does supporting our sponsors. And as I said earlier, if you would like to contribute directly to the site, we would love that. Details are on our Support page.

Thanks again!
