Burning Wood Needs Your Help
In just two days, Burning Wood will celebrate its two year anniversary.
Thank you all! I think we've come a long way.
The daily readership is ten times more than it was a year ago, and the interaction is just wonderful. It's a warm feeling to see you participate, especially when I move you to do so.
The one thing I had hoped for from day one, but still has been as rare as hen's teeth, was outside contributions. Ideas for threads, concert reviews, book reviews, if you feel like writing it, I'll post it.
Another thing, please spread the word. If you like what you see, say so. Share the link on Facebook. If you have a blog and a blogroll, I'd be honored to be a part of it.
There is one more obstacle, though.
Also celebrating, or more accurately, closing out its two year anniversary, is my membership to the website that hosts all the music files that I upload for your listening pleasure. Now there are plenty of sites who offer their hosting and storage services for free, but along with that free service comes more complications: time consuming downloads with passwords, limits, less space for me (and you), and more annoying pop-ups for massage therapy and Zoloft. I have listened to many of you who are still afraid to download music, or who simply can't be bothered with the inconveniences of the free sites. By paying for space, your tunes, including the CD length "Weekend Mixes" are one click away.
So it is with great humility that I ask this, if you'd like all the music that is posted- the "Weekend Mixes," the rare live concerts, unreleased tracks by your favorite artists, old rare vinyl, etc.--to continue, free of charge with no loop holes (except this one), and you feel like showing your appreciation, click on the Burning Wood Fund Donation button and show your support.
The donation button, by the way, is all the way down the page, on the right.
No money is made from Burning Wood. (Really...nothing.) It is a labor of love that I hope to continue, as long as you'll have me. I just need some help. No amount is too small.
Thank for you reading and thank you for coming back, day after day.
