So here’s what’s up: I don’t know if WWR can last through 2016. I’ve been paying my guys out of pocket and managing the servers for about 5 years now and it’s nearing the end of feasibility for me. But things don’t have to end that way.
We have had some donations including an incredible $500 donation from a dedicated reader but it’s not enough. All it would take is for 500 of you – and I know there are more than 500 to donate $1 a month. $12 a year. That’s it.
If we can’t do this I’ll shut the site down this May.
Why am I bothering you this way?
I don’t want to be in the pockets of big watchmaking. Heck, big watchmaking is about to go down the tubes. Big advertisers like Swatch Group and LVMH don’t care about us and I saw firsthand all the trouble Ariel went through just to get them to notice him. To be clear he made ABlogToWatch his job. WWR is a labor of love.
Please visit our Patreon page to help out. It means a lot and I don’t want to have to shut this down. If we can hit $500 a month we can pay all of our costs – that’s right, we are that lean. I’ll send a signed copy of my book to folks who pledge $9.99 or more and I’ll give you a hug if I meet you in person. Sound good? Good.
