No. 3: Because I need $320 in subscriptions daily

Part of an occasional series of reasons to support Gannett Blog during this quarter’s pledge drive. My goal: to raise $6,000 quarterly, through advertising and voluntary subscriptions of $5 per reader.

So far today, I’ve received $105 in subscriptions. To reach my overall goal, however, I need to take in an average $320 a day (not counting weekends) during this three-week pledge drive, ending Nov. 2. That’s based on the current trend in ad sales. Today’s sales totaled $26.

So, I’ve now raised $1,023 — 17% of my goal!

  • Advertising: $219
  • Subscriptions: $804

Thank you for your generosity!

To buy a $5 subscription, please use the “Donate” tool in the green sidebar, upper right. Any amount appreciated! Post feedback in the comments section, below. Send e-mail to gannettblog[at]gmail[dot-com].

    How much is each click on an ad? You get a nickel per click? Two bits?

    I’m not supposed to disclose that, under the AdSense TOS. Sorry.
