I'll get right to the point - the web expenses for the site are coming due, and your friend and webmaster is in a tight financial situation. If I want to keep the site up an running in the future, I'm going to need some quick cash to pay the bills.
I'm not looking for donations or handouts, however. I want to give you something in return - advertising space on the site. I'm willing to put up banner and/or button ads in some prime locations on the page - the index, FAQ, and blog pages - for six months (through mid-July 2011), for $50. If you have a roleplaying product or anything else gaming-related that you would like to promote, this is a great way to get the word out. My site and blog reach hundreds of roleplayers across the United States and all over the world. In addition, I would even be willing to put a sponsor notice on the Facebook pages for the site, extending that reach even further.
Alternately, if you are looking for some writing or artwork for your RPG product, I can provide those as well. You can read samples of my writing here, or see samples of my artwork here.
All I require is payment up front, through PayPal - and I only ask this because the bills are due very soon. If you are interested in helping, contact me ASAP -
Thanks for your time and help, and Happy New Year to all!
