Time For MyEverettNews-A-Palooza!

February 22, 2016


MyEverettNews As we start the sixth year of MyEverettNews.com we’ve got some fun things planned. I say we because without your support MyEverettNews.com would not exist.

Your donations, story ideas, news tips and comments are what keep MyEverettNews.com running. Your willingness to visit and support our advertisers, small business owners we come across and events we think are important are greatly appreciated.

It takes money to produce MyEverettNews.com and while we have great advertisers there aren’t enough of them to keep us going which is why I openly solicit donations from you, the reader. The cost of office space, taxes, licenses, internet hosting and web development, gas, brakes, insurance, etc. is more than I can bear alone. The basic donation we ask is 3 cents a day for a year. $10.00. In 2015 we had more than 1 million page views with 361,113 unique users and 700,176 sessions. If just 2% of those unique users donated $10 each we’d be in great shape. That however has not happened and so I’m trying to get creative.


For a $20.00 donation you can own one of these stylish travel mugs!

We’re going to try and encourage more donors with incentives. Kinda like like they do on Public Television. Our first premium item is a brand new 16 ounce travel mug good for keeping hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold.
It’s sleek, stylish and will look great falling off the roof of your car as you drive off forgetting you set it up there when your hands were full so you could open your door. Make a $20.00 donation to MyEverettNews.com and get the travel mug…plus I’ll even personally deliver it to you anywhere within the Everett city limits! Just click here to donate and be sure to leave your email address so I can arrange personal delivery.

I’ve also been asked to do events where people can come out and say hello in person. That’s why I’ve come up with the MyEverettNews-A-Palooza! It’s an annual type of event to be held every February 29th. Our first event will happen next Monday with stops at several locations throughout Everett. Come out, say hello and enter to win a special prize package from Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op. Look for times, locations and more details later this week.

It’s important to do what you love and I love producing MyEverettNews.com. Thanks for sharing in this journey.
