My first ever fundraiser is off to a good start, and I want to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has donated and thus supported this blog.
If you have not donated, yet: Please consider giving some money that can be used to sustain and expand this blog! Photography blogs have been transforming the way photography is seen and talked about, and they have been steadily growing while the traditional print media have slashed their budgets for the arts, with newspapers turning into a dying breed now.
There is a lot of talk about a “free” culture; and Conscientious is free: You can come and browse and read without having to pay for it, regardless of where you live. But there is a limitation to free: At the end of the day, some things cost money. The production of contents does cost money - I have long refused to admit this (this is the first fundraiser after seven years of blogging), but it is a simple fact. For me to be able to not only sustain the blog, but also expand it your financial support is crucial. So if you have not done so, please consider supporting this blog by donating money.
