How much is Michiganliberal.com worth to you?

UPDATE by Matt: Here's a measure of how far we've come: the Lansing State Journal's new political blog describes Michiganliberal.com as "the grandaddy of Michigan political blogs." How about them apples? Not even two years old - and already a grandaddy!

Click here to become a member of Michiganliberal.com

What would you do if Michiganliberal.com disappeared tomorrow? How do you think your impressions of this year's races for Governor, Senator, and the Legislature might be different if you couldn't have Michlib listed among your bookmarks?

Don't worry, we're not going away (dream on, Saul). I only say all of this as a way to get your attention, get you to think about how much Michiganliberal.com is worth to you - how much it adds to your understanding of your state...and then hit you up for money by asking you to become a Michlib member today!

Click here to find out more about why you should become a member - and to see who is on our sacred and cherished membership roster. Pay whatever you think the service is worth to you and whatever you can afford ($25 is the basic member level). Unlike public radio, we don't have groovy totebags and coffee mugs to give away (though we do have them for sale through Cafe Press - click here). But you will at least have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped to make sure liberals, progressives, and Democrats continue to have the most active and comprehensive online political community in Michigan.

Why do we need money? Well, for one thing, to keep my mortgage paid and lights turned on. These days, I do Michlib exclusively. The ads help - but it isn't enough. One can only live on Mejer-brand macaroni and cheese for so long. We need some new members.

For another, as some of you know, we recently moved to a big new server - so we'll be online, fast, and available to everybody during these pivotal last three weeks. That costs some money. Not a lot. But it does add up.

Whatever happens next month, it's clear Michiganliberal.com has made a difference. I'm constantly amazed by how this site has taken off. - and I couldn't be more proud. Just imagine what we can do next...with your help.

Please send money.

Thank you.

How about giving away ScamWay products??
I'll have to dig into my reserve, but I would be glad to give some up.  Premium priced products folks, see what all these people are getting duped into spending their retirement funds on!  When I knew Pyxis was going down hill, and my job would be lost, I stocked up on all things sudsy.

Next paycheck, you'll get my membership, Matt.  You, and all the contributors, do an incredible job.

Comments like that mean a lot.

worth every penny
Promised to contribute, payable after the election, so as to maximize my other political payola between then and now.  I understand not everybody can do this, but I urge you to do what you can to help Matt keep the lights on. 

I joined!
ML is worth every penny.

Matt, can you add a link to my site whenever I get added to the membership roster? Thanks!

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few

My life is good
so you get a slice of it.

Your blog is part of my daily sanity strategy.

I'm not that eartha - or that one either

I've been lurking for a few weeks now, and have enjoyed every single minute...guess it's time to demonstrate just how grateful I am for the wonderful service provided by you and the rest of the gang here.  Watch for my check by snail mail!

We joined as well...
Also when we can I will try to throw a few more dollars your way.  I rather give direct cash to this place then the actual Democratic Party.  We like to direct our funds toward what we want....like the Governor's campaign.  I was glad to do that for her.  The nice young man that waited on us was willing to just give me a hat.  I said no...I will pay for the hat.  Her campaign needed it.

Same as for here.  This place actually needs it.  I was in your home.  I can tell you need a newer monitor.  Save your eye sight somewhat.  hehe 

You do a great service.  For that I thank you...

I donated.
Now get a job, ya bum j/k :).

Thanks to all of our new members!
Wow! Over $400 from just one post!

Seriously, it really means a lot. I can't thank you guys enough!
