Times Are Tough

note:  this post will remain at the top of KK for the next 24-48 hours.

When I started blogging using the free blogspot services, I knew nothing about what the future would hold.

Today, after about 4 1/2 years of blogging, I have a better grip on how things work. 

In order to make it easier on the KK readers, I went the professional route and paid for a web designer, blogging software and a hosting service. 

At this point of time, KK receives over 12 million page views a month and that figure continues to grow.  Continuing to grow is good, but with that growth comes more expenses, which are normally covered by the ads that appear on KK.

But advertising income is way down, down due to the economic problems we are all aware of.  At one time, KK was receiving around $2.50 per thousand ads viewed, these days, that number is down to about .50 cents per thousand.

In the past conversations that I have had with KK readers, I have always stated I would never think of charging you for viewing KK, I would stop blogging if it ever came to that.  My views are still the same, but what I am going to ask is if you have found KK a useful service, one that is helped you keep up with all things hockey, maybe you would like to make a one-time donation to help KK get through these very tough economic times.

I have set up an account that allows you to donate through PayPal.  Any amount is appreciated and all money received will go right back into KK.

I hope you understand the situation and ask you .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you have any questions or concerns.
