Sponsors | Stock market blues? Invest right here!

Gannett's stock has plunged 25% from a year ago, to just a hair over $10 a share, as investors worldwide reassess where they're putting their money.

But Gannett Blog's monthly pageviews are up 48% from last year, to over 280,000, according to Google Analytics. Given such diverging metrics,* no wonder a reader in Colorado just gave me $20!

With recent advertising sales, that contribution brings me to 41% of my quarterly goal. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $548 
  • Advertising: $1,110 
 * Disclaimer: Past performance is no guarantee of future results!

I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. Please use the PayPal "Donate" tool in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash and checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.
