Save BuzzFlash

By Libby

I remember when I first discovered BuzzFlash, I almost wanted to keep it a secret because it was so valuable an aggregator for blogging. Somehow, day after day, week after week, with months slipping into years, they assemble the best collection of underreported news known to man. As a new blogger trying to break into the big time, I was tempted to keep that edge for myself. But my natural inclination to share and the impossibility of keeping up with the content on a daily basis soon caused me to pass its link on far and wide.

I never knew much about them though until they posted this appeal for funds today. They've been at this since 2000 and survived on donations, the sale of premiums and the support of their founders who had other employment and were able to underwrite much of the expenses. Unfortunately, even they are feeling the pinch of the Bushenomic bust and the founders now find themselves without the funds necessary to keep BuzzFlash going on their own and they need to raise substantial cash to keep this vital resource going.

If you don't feel you can make an outright donation, they have a huge selection of books and other items at a fair price that would make great presents during this holiday season. Please consider doing what you can to help. Losing BuzzFlash would greatly dim our ability to keep an eye on the corrupt establishment that threatens to destroy civil society as we know it.

Why do they need to expand? Maybe they should think about cutting some of the waste, such as that stupid fictional Cafe place...what purpose does it serve? Maybe if they implemented plans to eliminate the trolls from their BFDN section I'd consider donating. They have been giants and a great source of knowledge and solace, but it's a no-brainer that the time to expand is not when people are burning out because Bush's time is almost done anyway. They need to evolve, not expand.

I think they're just trying to stay alive zee, not so much expand. I find them an invaluable resource.

They said expand, Libby. They need to dump the chaff such as the self-indulgent fictional crap cafe.
All day long they've had a cross-link that is still there even after I (and apparently only I) pointed it out to them. They severely need to make a few simple rules at BFDN so that they grow a REAL community, instead of letting themselves be hijacked by Naderites and third party zealots and Constitutionalist trolls. Until Mark proves he's ready to evolve his demise will be on him. And, yes, it will be a damned shame, but so it goes.

Zee, you clearly know more about the periherals than I do. With five blogs I don't often have time to get past the main aggregator and I don't even know what the cafe thing is unless you're talking about the buzznet which I have to admit I rarely visit except when they link to something in it from the main page.

I don't know. I think they do great work and have been a tremendous resource in staying abreast of the news that the MSM tries to bury. I would hate to lose them and I'm willing to try to help them stay afloat.

We may have to agree to disagree here.
