As you know, BMG received a credential from the Democratic Party to cover the convention in Denver as MA’s representative in the “State Blogger Corps.” We are very excited about this unique opportunity — as members of the State Blogger Corps, we will be seated on the convention floor with the rest of the MA delegation, giving us unparalleled access to the folks who represent all of us at the convention.
However, traveling to Denver and living there for four days will not be free, and blogging remains (at least for us) a largely volunteer endeavor — our modest advertising sales help us defray day-to-day costs, but sending three bloggers to Denver for a four-day event is the biggest and most expensive thing we’ve undertaken (so far). So … if you felt like throwing a few bucks our way to help defray the costs, we’d be most grateful.
Donations are of course not tax-deductible or anything like that.
UPDATE [By Bob]: In response to the excellent observations below, I just wanted to note for the record that we will purchase a $50 carbon offset from Carbonfund.org to help support their reforestation efforts. Three round-trips to Denver will produce approximately 7,000 tons of CO2; a $50 donation will offset approximately 11,000 tons of carbon, according to Carbonfund. Now we can discuss whether carbon offsets are useful, or a modern form of indulgence, along with everything else.
