NORWALK, Conn. – What if you woke up tomorrow, logged on to NancyOnNorwalk.com – and it was gone?
What if you had to depend, once again, on a single source for news about what is happening in Norwalk – not just what’s happening in the meetings and developers’ board rooms, but what’s happening behind the scenes?
It could happen.
There are no elves that come in the night to write and post the news you read online. To create the NancyOnNorwalk news package takes two people working full time, plus a web designer and technician working part time to keep it running.
How much do you value what NancyOnNorwalk brings to the table?
For the past year, a relatively small group of appreciative readers has kept NoN in business through their generous donations. Ditto for the occasional advertisers. But the vast majority of our thousands of readers have enjoyed NoN for free.
Well, push is coming to shove, and if you want NancyOnNorwalk to continue on its mission to bring you all the news of how your tax money is being used, and how your elected and appointed official are carrying out their duties, we ask that you make a small contribution.
If every reader gave one dollar a month, it would, combined with the small amount of ad dollars, barely support the site. But every reader will not donate a dollar a month.
A local print product charges $1 a day on the newsstand, or 13 weeks at $32.50, or about 37 cents a day. A quarter of our readers donating half that amount would support NoN for a month.
Please consider a small donation today. Whatever you can afford – whatever you thing NoN is worth to you – will help keep us going.
We need the community – our readers – to let us know, and let us know now, if they want NancyOnNorwalk to be a part of their lives. That’s how capitalism works. The market speaks. We are listening.
