We’re very proud of what WPCandy has become in such a short time. If you remember, we relaunched the blog just a few months ago. And since then, WPCandy is becoming more than just a blog—we’re really becoming more of a community site here. The primary group to thank is actually you guys: the RSS readers, the iPhone app users, the Twitter followers, and the commenters.
And we’d like to ask for your help to continue on in the upward direction we’re headed.
WPCandy doesn’t allow advertisers, although we could. We honestly don’t want to be powered by advertisers. We want to be powered by you, the community. With the WPCandy iPhone app and our highly successful reverse launch deal, we believe the WordPress community has proven that it deserves nice things. We want to take that to the next level.
Starting today, we’re inviting you—the readers, peering through RSS windows and making this site what it is—to power WPCandy yourselves. By donating to WPCandy, you will very literally be powering what we think is becoming the WordPress community website.
You can power the site right now, in a few different ways. Full information is available on the donation page, but in short:
- Build the WPCandy Factory at $5/month
- Power a single post for a handful of mints (or $10)
- Power a day for a bucket of mints (or $75)
- Power a week for a wheelbarrow of mints (or $600)
- Power a month for a truck of mints (or $2,500)
Do you have additional ideas, or ways you would like to power WPCandy? Get in touch.
So have you benefitted from WPCandy? Have you found that perfect theme or plugin? Perhaps it has entertained you with a constant IV of WordPress. This is one way you can show your thanks.
What do you get?
You’ll be thanked, you’ll receive byline credit on posts you help power, and you will be recognized as helping to grow this awesome site. If we can, we’ll find more awesome ways to thank you in the future as well.
All of the money sent to WPCandy goes directly to powering the site and making it possible for the team (and eventually others) to spend a serious amount of time on WPCandy and growing it.
What do you think?
We have a vision, but we also care about what you think. So what do you think of this new initiative? Will you help power this WordPress community resource by supporting WPCandy?
Now we go back to doing our best to make this site deserving of your love. Hopefully a few of you decide to click one of those buttons. It would really make our day.
