How come Mr. Sweepy hasn't announced this? Makes me suspicious. Maybe I'm overboard here. Maybe i missed the posting.

I spend a lot of time on this site and for the enjoyment it brings me, I'd be willing to pay a subscription.  Enhanced features could be added such as the ability to ignore those users who post blank comments habitually.  I'd also like to see at a glance when scrolling down the list of sweepstakes which ones are ending within a few days.


For now , I've turned off my ad blocker and will start clicking on some ads to get some revenue into this site.

I think it would be a big help to post this on the new sweeps as an announcement.  A lot of people do not visit the forum but do have disscussions on each new sweep.

I agree with debseg01.  Most everybody visits the "New Sweeps" page, so it sounds like it would be a great idea to post the announcement there.

Why wouldn't Mr sweepy anounce this issue here?  Sounds sketchy to me.

Thank you for your kind comments, responses and donations.  The financial problems are very real and I wouldn't consider GoFundMe unless there was a serious issue. Over the years, ST has been very successful and profitable. Mainly because I made a committment to build a nestegg. This was in part because I was seeing nice ad dollars coming in but because I knew some day, the ship would come home and the good days would slow down or come to a end. Instead it was a lot worse than I even thought would happen.


The problem in online advertising is distribution of the quality ads is not fair and the distributors mainly Google, controls the amount paid to the publishers. This is the heart of the problem. about 5 or 6 years ago, we were make over 100 times more per day than what we are today. Yes, that is correct, over 100 times. Over this time, I reduced  expenses down to the bare minimum. We still are losing money today.


Last, only a few people know but I had a heart attack. At first I didn't think so and thought I had a chest cold and allergies. I even drove myself to the hospital. Boy was I wrong.  I ended up with 3 stints that night and 4 more the next month. This had a big effect on ST also. I feel pretty good now but a little less on the daily work amount in part becuase of medication. Still a good trade off.


I haven't post on ST yet in part because I was communicating with a white knight who was looking at what we were doing business wise. While this white knight will likely not be able to help, I did receive good ideas about online advertising and how to correct the issues that Mr. Sweepy faces.


There is more to this but this give you the big picture. I am looking to buy some time so I can fix this mess. No guarantees I can fix it but has you know me, I will not quit without trying everything to safe my love, passion and family, you the members of ST.


Craig

I am at a loss for words. I am so sorry to hear about your health issues. I hope you will take the time to really take care of yourself. Baby steps. It's sad to hear about the financial issues you're having with this site. I have been so passionate about sweeping ever since I found ST. I will give you my support and wish I could have given more. You've given me the opportunity to win prizes I never could imagine so it's time to give back. A HUGE thank you for all you've done for me. I hope other members will join in on the support. Stay well and best of luck with ST! We ALL need you!

No problem, I would hate to see this site go away, it is the best one out there and Craig does a super job in bringing us only top notch sweeps to enter.


I hope his health holds up and he keeps strong, he does a great job and has a great team.
