It’s a little weird to ask for money, but I’m paying for this whole thing out of my own pocket. And believe me, as a single parent, a double master’s student, and a lifelong journalist, there’s not a hell of a lot in my pocket. So far, my costs are around $2,000 for classes, hosting, paying for “public” documents, and miscellany. I’ve also had to pay for a little development. Shelby DeNike, who owns SystmWeb has been incredibly helpful with the technical stuff, and while I highly recommend him, he’s got to eat, too.
