This is a very exciting time at The Planet. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have so many of HP’s finest make the move, along with other wonderful new members, to join the remarkable community we’ve built here at PlanetPOV.
As many of you now know, we had just moved to a new (more expensive) server and were ironing out some tech issues when the HP Titanic hit the AOL iceberg (“I’m Qveen of Za Vorld!”). It was admittedly a little bumpy for a couple of days last week but aside from an occasional quirk or two since then, we’ve got things running as they were before, steady, fast and with moderators tied up in the closet.
PlanetPOV is a site by bloggers for bloggers that welcomes people of all political views as peers and deserving of respect. There are no cliques, no gang tackling, no insults, no personal attacks or trolls permitted here. Just substance, genuine conversation, thoughtful debate on issues that matter and plenty of fun and wit.
PlanetPOV is people-powered. Our articles, comments, support and operating budget come from our community. There are no hedge funds or internet behemoths that own any part of The Planet, we’re independent and proud of it.
Additionally, we have chosen not to use the standard advertising services that could provide us with revenue at the expense of cluttering the site with ads and promoting things that we and the community would philosophically oppose.
So, we rely primarily upon you, our community, to keep The Planet in orbit.
This is our quarterly donation drive and we’re asking you, our fellow Planeteers, to help out however you can. Your subscription or donation would be very meaningful in helping maintain and build a better Planet.
There are two ways you can contribute, by subscribing to The Planet or making a single donation.
If you subscribe, which is a monthly donation of $5/month, you will not only be helping to keep The Planet spinning but as a bonus for subscribing for at least a year, you will receive your choice of a PlanetPOV mousepad or a Morning Blog mug.
If you make a single donation, any amount would be greatly appreciated. If you make a single donation of $60 or more, you will also receive your choice of the PlanetPOV mousepad or our Morning Blog mug.
