As you probably know, we are struggling to keep Pemberley afloat. Our server contract comes due next Spring and, if we cannot find a reliable revenue stream by May 1, we will probably be forced to shut down the site.
We were very disappointed to be dropped by Google Adsense for reasons that
they refused to explain to us. Thus far, nothing we have found comes near providing us with sufficient income, but we will continue looking for alternatives.
There are ways you can help, if you would like to see us remain viable:
We truly do appreciate the one-off contributions we occasionally receive from Pemberleans and hope that they will continue to come in, but we cannot rely on them as a regular source of income. In the last year, Pemberley has had over 865,000 unique visitors. Twenty of them contribute a monthly amount to support the site. If 200 people were to commit to a monthly payment of no more than $10.00/month, we could comfortably assure that we would have the wherewithal to keep going.
We have just added Amazon Payments to our subscription options. Check out
the Direct Contributions section of our support page.
Buy from our affiliates
We recognize that CafePress has a limited inventory, but do keep them in mind when you are shopping for your Janeite friends.
However, you can buy almost anything from Amazon. Please do. Bookmark our
Amazon search engine
or our Amazon home page link and use it whenever you can. Every little bit helps.
This is a critical time for Pemberley. Your support will mean the difference whether or not we continue to operate this haven.
