Someone might be wondering, and it’s only fair.
First, there are normal operating expenses. We have webhosting and a domain name and those things cost money.
Then there’s our WordPress expert, Jennette. She rocks. She’s the one who restored us after the Great Site Outage of Twenty Ten. We paid her money for that we used our personal banking account for that. And then we kept paying her money for other things, because she’s super-talented. And also she helped with the redesign, which many of you hate. And also she designed our new header. Plus she took our vintage logo and polished it (see? it’s to the right), and got us new fonts, and all sorts of things like that.
Both of us (Deborah and Roberta) have digital voice recorders that we use for interviews. I needed a new netbook recently. The netbook is specifically useful because it’s small and I can sit in front of the TV with it and do my recaps.
Plus, every year we throw a kickass season finale party and, while we run a raffle, the party is always a financial loss (the raffle has never garnered the value of the prizes, let alone other party expenses). We pay for it from the Basket funds, which we feel is 100% worth it.
So, now you know. There’s more of course, but that’s the basics. Please help us keep this crazy party going if you can.
