Somehow, it is January again, which means it’s time for my once-in-a-blue-moon pitch for contributions to the Hubbell Pew. The idea is very simple: if you read the blog regularly (or even semi-regularly, or even occasionally), please consider making a small contribution to the operation of the website. In making this pitch, I’m pledging that The Hubbell Pew will continue to be here for you to read / enjoy / meditate five days a week except for an occasional beach break and holidays like my birthday.
This year is special, as it will mark at some point that over 1500 Meditations will be posted and for those of you are interested — over 50,000 spam comments you never have to see. (I delete all spam comments every morning.) The site has a new webmaster who will help me make the website more attractive and ensure that it works. Your generosity helps pay her modest fee. We also have a search feature that enables readers to search The Hubbell Pew for subjects that are of interest.
Whatever happens, this blog will remain an outpost of the Old Internet: no ads except for my books, no corporate sponsorship, no whistles and bells. Just the singular, personal voice of someone who tries to offer an opportunity to meditate, think, and to find a moment away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
As I have said in years past, asking for contributions is very difficult for me to do, and I promise I won’t do it again for another year at least. The Hubbell Pew will always be free. I have no interest in cordoning it off, nor do I have any interest in taking advertising. Anyway, if you are so moved, there is a Paypal button in the sidebar, and a mailing address here:
