It’s been nearly six months since the day the world got canceled. At this moment in time, some events are still being canceled, but more aren’t even being planned in the first place. Still, there are hundreds of events each month that are happening as safely as possible, whether they are “virtual” events online or part of the physically distanced masquerade ball the world has turned into. For better or worse, the PDD Calendar continues to report what’s happening today, tomorrow and on into infinity … or at least into 2021.
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.
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 lists of the “Eight best apps for reorganizing your closet.” We don’t gather and sell your personal information. We believe the internet can be better than that.
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.
