Moleskinerie needs your support

Img_2950v_2

I thought I could do it without asking for help this year but it has come to a point where I really need your assistance. As you may already know, Moleskinerie.com is a personal project
and essentially a one-man operation (with help from Joy Rothke and our other friends). With traffic averaging 17,000/
week from
notebook aficionados all over the world what used to be a hobby now
takes a practically all  of my personal time. Beside website
maintenance, responding to email, press queries and community housekeeping (on FLICKR and GoogleGroups) has become part of my daily routine.

With a modest budget I need your support to keep Moleskinerie
online. 

I have made available a limited number of slots for "Benefactor" links (left side).
As a Benefactor, your name (and link to your website) will be displayed for 6 months.

To join this list email me for details.

Donations in any amount are welcome. You may use PayPal. [Please note that there is a minimal transaction fee that PayPal calls "Shipping and Handling"]

Thanks for making Moleskinerie.com the premier fansite for
these legendary notebooks.

Help keep us eclectic and free!

I haven’t really taken a break since last year so allow me to take this week off while we contemplate this blog’s future. I’ll be back  on Monday. In the meantime, consider donating to Moleskinerie.com. There’s plenty of space left above! :)

Here are a few of the touching emails I’ve received. Thanks again.

"Dude! As
soon (and I mean first thing in the a.m.) as I get some more
bread on my
Paypal card it is yours. I love the site!"
 
"I don’t have much to give right now, but I feel I owe the site my
dues."
 
"I feel extremely fortunate with my life now.  But it was a long journey of
many lessons and wrong turns.  I hate to think of how long I was on the wrong
path, I was an engineer– good career but really not a good fit for me.  After I
finally climbed out of that, there were other stumbles until I finally started
asking myself the right questions, and listening.

"Thanks for all you do
there…sometimes it can be quite isolating here…. but through your blogs,
I"ve linked to so many fascinating worlds that I otherwise would have known
nothing about.  I also love the discussions, though I don’t participate, I enjoy
reading others’ conversations and feeling part of the community.  Your blogs are
very enriching for me."

 
"I am nobody you know. I donated to keep your website going."

" I would love to have paid more but we’ve had a real tough year…whilst I’m not in moleskinerie every day I love the
site and what you’ve done with an open heart!"

    Moleskinerie is one of the very few sites I check almost daily. I enjoy seeing other people’s journals and often find interesting links. Let us know what else you need.

    Greetings from Blacksburg!

    Armand any possible way to donate from Russia? There is no pay-pal service here, unfortunately.

    Hi Alisher. The only method I know is Western Union. Their agent locator is here:

    Spasibo!

    I live and love your site Armand

    Keep going and maybe one day you can hire an employee so that you can have some free time.
    I will expedite a contribution for you to continue on your outstanding work.
    This is the best Moleskine site I have seen :)
