"How can you afford to give away so much quality material everyday?"
It's a question that, in one form or another, we get regularly.
The answer is: We can't.
We're only able to do so because of the kindness of readers like you.
It's understandable that those not involved in web publishing don't fully appreciate what it takes to produce a five-times-a-week online magazine. There are in addition to tough deadlines and hard work licensing fees, hosting and production costs, tech support and repairs, and more.
The bills mount and it's almost a game of chance to see if those gaining from JWR will care enough to support it.
Nobody ever said that making an impact on the world would be easy. And based on the positive mail we receive, we most certainly are.
You rely on JWR to be inspired, entertained and, most importantly, informed. We act as an elegant and eloquent exponent for the values that you hold dear. It's the reason you keep coming back again and again.
It's also the reason why, if your issue is late in arriving, you question if there is anything amiss. You do so because you value JWR. And you'd miss us immensely if we were ever to stop.
In years past, I have made appeals in the fall and the spring. This year, there was a family tragedy that I had to deal with. Any free time that I had after operating JWR's day to day affairs was invested there.
It has been a year since we last made an appeal. With Thanksgiving around the corner and the holidays shortly after that, I'm asking that you please express your appreciation.
