Greetings Witches, Pagans, Wiccans and Heathens,
While each turn of the Wheel seems to prompt us here at TWV to reflect and reevaluate, this past week was really more of a punch in the gut. Site traffic continues to be up (Last Month 494,126 visitors consumed 2,445,121 pages of information). Financial support continues to fade away. And what we are looking at here...Well, what are we looking at here?
Everything. We are looking at everything. We are looking at the possibility of closing down because we cannot afford to stay up beyond the end of September. We are looking at the possibility that the lack of financial support may mean that most of you no longer find what we do here useful enough to be worthy of Your Contribution . We are considering even that TWV may have simply run its course (and that's ok).
Our deal with you and with our Gods has always been a simple one: We would maintain the site for you as long as the community support for it was there... Is it? We just don't know at this point. However this turns out, we do know this: It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you.
A Huge UPDATE - This week we kick things off with a passionate Rant from Wren detailing our frustration with the theft of our good name (for personal profit), community reactions, attacks on other Pagans, and much to think about... Also featured this week: Details on how you can support TWV with your credit card via PayPal, timely Witchvox reviews of 'Sirius Rising' by Don/Daniella Waterhawk and 'Hands of Change' by Steven E. Repko, a power new piece by Kerr, a wonderful new Trad profile on Celtic Reconstructionist Paganism and your first round of Practical Magick Essays. It's also worth noting that last week saw a massive amount of new networking submissions for YOUR area (over 1,100 new events, groups, Pagans, links etc...).
