The PDD Calendar continues to soldier on through the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping you informed about virtual events and things that might or might not happen in the fuzzy future.
Once a month we reach out with a beggarly blog post to remind everyone that human beings and not machines are at work editing and publishing calendar events on Perfect Duluth Day. So if you appreciate it, drop a few bucks in the PayPal account, yo.
Yes, PDD does receive income from advertising, but it’s never been enough to pay anything close to living wages. And of course the pandemic has doubled that problem. Nearly every enterprise in town is struggling in these challenging times.
What makes PDD so worthy of your spare change? Well, in addition to the obvious thing — the content you read here every day — we have also never uglied our website with popup ads, animated ads, Google surveys or auto-playing videos, and we don’t intend to start. There are no paywalls on PDD. We don’t publish “paid content” drivel or stories about the “Ten Netflix shows your dog should watch during the stay-at-home order.” We don’t gather and sell your personal information. We believe the internet can be better than that. We went 15 years without groveling, but these days we do it once a month and so far it feels like the bits of funding that roll in are worth the mild tarnish of virtual panhandling.
So please make a donation if you can, and please support our advertisers and all the local businesses that are struggling. And stay healthy so you’re ready to rock as the world slowly resumes. Thanks in advance for anything you can do.
