This is a followup to my last post about AnimeBlogger.net needing some help financially.  In the comments on that post, and also in a post on Hinano’s blog a few people have misinterpreted things.  So please let me clarify this for record:

  • Making donations is not required if you’re hosted with us, or if you wish to be hosted with us in the future.  If you can’t make a donation that’s fine, you’re welcome to enjoy our hosting the same as it’s always been.  We are merely asking those that can and who would like to help out to make a donation.  We’re not going to think poorly of someone if they don’t or can’t, and this policy is not going to change in the future.  Donations are not mandatory.
  • It will not help AnimeBlogger.net financially for anyone we host to move to other hosting.  We’re in no danger of going over our bandwidth or disc space quotas, and are unlikely to get anywhere near hitting those quotas in the foreseeable future.  In fact we’re still happily accepting new bloggers and will continue to do so.
  • The site is not going to go away, period.  I’m just having a bit of a tough time financially and need some help covering the hosting bill for a few months.  This isn’t a permanent situation.  There are also contingency plans in place for others to take over the site if I become unable to for any reason.

I hope that helps clear things up a bit.  We appreciate everyone’s concern but we don’t want people worrying needlessly. :)  If you have any questions about anything please don’t hesitate to E-mail me and ask. (Note: you will need to remove the obviously extra text from the address before you can send.)

Let me start off by saying that the site’s not going anywhere, I know that some people are going to (justifiably) worry when the read the rest of this.  Some things will change, nothing really drastically, but the site is not going away.  In the absolute worst case I’ll turn it over to someone else to maintain.

With that said, I’m writing this to let everyone know that on July 1st of this year, I lost my job.  Technically my position was just eliminated and my contract not renewed, but the real reason was because of my health problems.  Nothing can be done about this, I live in an “at will” employment state anyway and they made sure to do this in a way that they don’t look like they were discriminating against me because of my health.
