Funding. Whitelist the site from ad blockers please. Or donate..


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was prompted to look through the financials of NJDevs because Paypal dinged me twice already this year for $90/mo for hosting here. The revenue picture isn't great. This is the ad report for the last month...$2

It appears that although traffic is up almost 35% from last year the ad displays are down to only 25% of the visitors. Amazon  referral bounties have dwindled to nothing (2$) for the entire year.

So the short of it, can I ask you all to white-list this site from any ad blockers you have and remember to use the amazon referral link when shopping there?

If the shortfalls keep happening I am going to have to figure out some more drastic measures.

Thanks again everyone

Maybe you should also remind everyone of the Venmo/PayPal info as well, in case they felt like contributing directly.

Thanks for the update.  I would hate to see this site go away!  Is there a monthly option?  Even if it is for something small, like $1-2 per month, if a lot of people all did this it would start to bring up the revenue stream some.

@mfitz804, time to revive that wager thread? that was a blast.

Yeah, it’s always a good time. But it was usually just us putting our money where our mouths are. 

Except that one guy who lost a huge bet that time...I wonder if he ever paid off...

May I ask what the general cost month to month is? 

I wouldn't mind "subscribing" a reasonable share.

I agree. I wonder if there's a way to have subscribers to help offset the cost? I'd be happy to pay monthly, quarterly or annually.

How does the Amazon link work? Just click here and buy? If it opens up in the app, is it still good?
