Donate

Write Through the Night is currently 100% volunteer run. I (Jocelyn) work hard to run this site myself and provide my writers with a unique place where they can be free to write about whatever interests them. That is only possible if this site stays alive! Your donations are necessary for us to continue to keep this little slice of the internet alive.

If you enjoy what you read on WTTN, consider making a donation today!

If you’re still on the fence or are unable to afford to donate at this time, that’s okay. We value all of our readers regardless of the financial contribution they’re able to make.

Our 2022 Expenses

I aim to be completely open about our expenses and revenue as the site grows. Below are our 2022 expenses. This will be updated as the year continues.

WordPress Plan: $106.25

This is the cheapest plan that allows for custom CSS, payment info, and ads on the site that I make money off of instead of WordPress. We currently make less than $1/month with ads.

Custom Domain: $18

This means that there’s no “.wordpress.com” in my domain! This is necessary for better SEO and also just general readability of the site URL.

Advertising: $10.88

Occasionally, we will pay for advertising on other sites to attract new viewership. We have seen a significant boost in readership during the months we advertise that persists to future months!

How We Use Your Donations

First and foremost, donations are used to cover all of the above expenses. After we hit net positive revenue, we will begin paying our writers for all of their hard work! Writers pitch all of their own ideas, write the pieces, respond with edits, and then promote their posts on social media to attract a bigger audience. This is a ton of work, and most certainly deserves to be paid!

At the end of each year, I divide up 100% of our net revenue evenly among all staff writers based on how many posts that they wrote that year. Right now we are still in the red, which means that not only are staff writers working for free, but I am paying out of pocket for all of the above expenses. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated!
