Dear beloved followers of FYF:
Today’s my 26th birthday (!) and I’m asking you to pitch in if you’ve enjoyed this site this past year.
As you may know, I am amongst the population affected by Sandy. One of the impacts of the Hurricane is that many people like me – hourly workers – have missed out on work. Long time followers of my blog are familiar with my history of financial insecurity and it’s frustrating to find myself around $400 in the hole this month due to loss of income.
This blog has been a labor of love and I am asking that if you are able, please consider supporting this blog. One of the reasons why I started this blog was because I felt that as a low-income woman of colour my voice was mostly ignored by the mainstream feminism media. Please consider supporting this blog (and me!) by contributing in any of the following ways:
- Buy ad space through BlogAds: Consider buying an ad on this site. The follower count is constantly growing with an increasing number of visitors each month. This is a great opportunity to reach an engaged, feminist audience while directly supporting feminist! This requires providing text and an image. For a limited time offer, you can enter the coupon code ‘birthday’ for 75% off my advertising rates!
- Become a sponsor: For those of you who do not have the time or resources to create an image for an ad, a sponsored link can be purchased for place on our front page in the sidebar. You can choose to have it for a varying amount of time (days, weeks, months, etc.)
- Paypal/Chipin: If you don’t have a link/product you want to promote and still want to donate, please consider giving a donation through my chipin widget.
We have 19,375 followers if just 25% of you donated $5 or less, I not only would be able to expand this site, but also make it ad-free. I know there are others struggling with the aftermath of Sandy and even more folks are unable to give due to other circumstances. I just want to give my deepest thanks to those who have been a great emotional support just by being a follower! I am continually awed and humbled by the amazing feminist community on this site.
P.S. Yes, that’s me dancing behind a painted cannon that says “Consent!” It’s from my days at Tufts as a peer educator about sexual and domestic violence.
