The 2018 Summer Fundraiser wraps up today.
And I wanted to take a moment to thank the readers who so generously contributed this week.
I am very grateful for your support and your many kind and supportive messages.
PatriotRetort.com launched in 2015, and I am amazed at how rapidly the site has grown since that time.
And the one downside to this rapid growth and exposure is the need for increased security measures.
It’s just a fact of life, I’m afraid.
In January 2017, PatriotRetort.com fell victim to multiple DDoS attacks. As a result, I had to harden my security.
And let’s just say it ain’t cheap.
But it is effective. Since that time the other attempts to crash my site failed to get through.
Now, I’m not going to claim it’s the “Deep State” or some nefarious “Soros-linked group” that made these attacks.
For all I know, it was a thirteen-year-old kid screwing around on his computer while eating Slim Jims and drinking Red Bull.
Any old how.
Though I began running ads on the site in April, the revenue at this stage isn’t enough to cover the costs of running this website.
And that’s why I run these twice-yearly fundraisers.
But for those of you who cannot afford to donate, you can still help.
Please whitelist PatriotRetort.com in your ad blocker. Revenue is from actual ad clicks, but it is based on the total number of visits. However, if you are running your ad blocker, your visits don’t get counted which affects the bottom line. Them’s just the facts.
But don’t worry. Like I said before, you’re visiting a political commentary site, not a carnival midway. So the ads here at PatriotRetort.com do not assault you, flash, wiggle, wave or in any way detract from your enjoyment of the site.
Now, everyone who donates fifteen dollars or more during the PatriotRetort.com Summer Fundraiser will be entered into a raffle to win a DEPLORABLE T-shirt from Dianny Tees.
Likewise, those who set up a recurring monthly donation via the Subscribe button will also have their names added to the Raffle.
And for those of you who do not wish donate via the PayPal DONATE button along the sidebar, you are more than welcome to send a donation via snail mail.
Make checks payable to Diann Russell and mail them to:
PO Box 66
LaFayette, NY 13084
I hope you’ll consider making a contribution.
I won’t be doing the raffle until next weekend in order to allow time for snail mail donations to make their way to my PO Box.
Again, I want to thank all of you who have been so generous this week.
It’s PatriotRetort.com’s Summer Fundraiser!
