The Blog Bailout of 2008
Economic Stimulus Package 34972-A
As the economy has worsened, so has the revenue from many sources thought to be financially stable. So it is not a complete surprise that revenue received from blog ads or click ads has fallen sharply in the last three quarters.
Technorati statistics show that there are at least 90 million blogs around the globe that may be in trouble as a direct result of the economic instability in the United States.
Millions of bloggers are faced with real financial difficulties such as getting a real job, shaving, getting up before noon, or getting out of their pajamas and actually working. Some may even be kicked out of their parents house. Many bloggers have found their revenue and reason to live cut off since the Presidential Election.
Millions of these bloggers may have to lay themselves off. They face the prospect of no unemployment benefits, no pension, no health care and especially no internet service for the unforeseeable future.
A well known, brilliant blogger named Rex Howell, from the OBS group has started a national campaign for relief to this affected group and is calling for a stimulus package of $64 billion dollars to insure that most of these people do not have to go back to jobs requiring the wearing of ties and the constant annoyance of alarm clocks in the mornings.
Plus, jobs can interfere with hunting season.
Mr. Howell (sadly) is also prepared to step in as the point man to oversee the distribution of the funds from his new office at Othmar Towers.
Please call your Congressman and support Stimulus Package 34972-A to help bloggers everywhere. (there might be something in it for you)
