This is a followup to my last post about 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 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.)

[...] The famed and prized Maestro runs the hosting for this blog as well as many others is having some difficulties and would appreciate any donations to go towards the hosting bill for Anime Blogger. All money will go towards supporting this website and you will not be seeing him around any stores buying manga for enjoyment with your donation money. This link explains all that you need to know about his current situation and you may use the donate link in my sidebar to donate any sum of money.He also posted some clarifications on this link.

Sorry for asking such a n00by question, but does animeblogger give only a domain or…?

Maestro on 25 December, 2006 at 12:49 am #

We provide hosting for the blogs, the domain comes with that as well as an E-mail address (if you want one).  E-mail addresses can be forwarding addresses or full E-mail accounts. :)

this should be more of a personal question but ive gotten banned from internet during school times..sigh so im writing this at school.. my friend told me it has to be 75% content anime which is understandable an all n i love anime but what if its like 60% anime 40% music genre? just cuz i think i have enough thought on anime that it would be acceptable for it to be considered an anime blogger rather than a split trivial thing.

Virus: Sorry for not responding sooner, I sort of lost track.  E-mail me about the blog, I don’t think it’ll be a problem.
