WE NEED YOUR HELP!
For those of who read what I write, I and those who work to keep this blog alive and well, say thank you. I am not alone in these endeavours. Team STEADYAKU47 is alive and well.
Speaking for myself, today I was up at 5 and spent the first one-hour going through anything I might have missed during my hours of sleep. Messages, news, comments and brickbats, some deliberately biting, some serious in their attempts to “educate” my ignorance in things “Malaysians” and a few who comment in agreement with what I write and jest at the antics of this old man in Melbourne.
We hope you like the magazine format that we have now adopted. Yes, there will be more things to add content, but the focus on all things politics/current affairs in Malaysia will still remain. The time and effort we are putting in all this is tempered with two limitations. Time and money.
Time is limited to the twenty-four hours that we have in a day. And, in that twenty-four hours, Team STEADYAKU47 we must also find time to do the things we need to do to keep body and soul together. The rest of the time, we blog here.
Money determines much of the time and effort we put into STEADYAKU47 since we do have to pay our rent, feed ourselves, and once in a while, do the things that bloggers do not normally do. Like finding money to upgrade our Computers to make our work on STEADYAKU47 more efficient and not time-consuming.
Like trying to earn a decent income blogging (Not possible!) or even, heavens forbid, outsource some of the routine work we do here that takes so much of our time and effort. Like transcribing interviews and conversations we had had with interesting people that could be of interest to you guys. Like having someone check what I write for grammar and spelling and then post the checked articles in the sites that we have.
Or even get ourselves gadgets and stuff that could make our blogging better and more interesting. All these things we want to do, but we cannot do because we do not have the means to go out and buy what we need.
Can you ask for your support to keep us alive and well with a donation? For those of you who have donated in the past, many thanks. For those of you who are considering our request to donate please do so with this thought. If we are to be relevant and be informed of the goings-on in the times that we now live in, we need to have bloggers who write not for money alone, not for any political inclinations or agendas, not for himself or for anyone else but write, because there are things that needs to be said.
Write of things that need to be done if we are to have the Malaysia that we want and the future we must have for ourselves and for future generations to come. We at STEADYAKU47 try to do this. We do not always succeed, but we damn always try. So guys please help us out with your donations.
May the Force be Kind to those of you who donate. To those who do not, please, please, please do keep reading what we write.
