As pokes in the arm are liberally distributed and people move from six feet apart to four or five, the PDD Calendar continues to catalog local events — some in person, many online. Each month we reach out with one beggarly blog post to remind everyone that human beings and not machines are at work editing and publishing calendar events. 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 “Nine tips for limiting someone else’s screen time you can learn by reading this thing on a screen.” 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.
