As you may know, earlier in 2004 I began a move to make this web site a viable business venture. The cost of hosting the news and forums sections of the site, and the considerable time involved in maintaining the forums and preparing content, made it no longer practical to pay for it all out of my own pocket.
The plan to make the site self-supporting through advertising revenue is mostly on track. Thanks to the support of some key companies out there, the Rob Galbraith Digital Photography Insights web site should remain on the air for a good, long time.
That said, recent site development expenses, and a big surge in bandwidth charges since September 2004, has translated into costs that are much higher than was budgeted for as the year closes out. Therefore, I've decided to make a direct appeal to readers to help push the site into the black as 2005 approaches.
