The Pledge Drive
Weíll get back to Smedís Corner in a moment, but I wanted to take this time to talk to you about and what it takes to put the great writing and essays of Smedís Corner on the web and how you can make sure that Smedís Corner stays on the internet.

All of the great programming, such as ďKnow Your StatesĒ (coming back soon), the various mix discussions, song lyric dissections, the Smed travel stories (a new-ish hit series), the popular family series, and all of the other great things that you see here on Smedís Corner is made possible from the generous gifts and grants of you, the reader.

It takes a lot to keep Katie in ballet slippers, Kristin in pull-ups, Smedís on airplanes and Liz in Puffs and cold medication. It takes your generous support. We hear from you all of the time

Smedís Corner doesnít come to you via advertisers. It comes to you thanks to you. If you didnít support Smedís Corner, there wouldnít be this great programming that you read on a daily basis, and there definitely would be a void in the internet.

So to support Smedís Corner, weíve put together some great premiums that you can receive if you make a modest pledge.

For $10 a month, you can get a Smedís Corner paperweight.

For $20 a month, you can get a Smedís Corner coffee mug.

For $25 a month, you can get a one-of-a-kind Smedís Corner tote bag.

For $50 a month, you can get the official Smedís Corner Karaoke game. Thatís a gift for you that will keep on giving. Well, that and the satisfaction that you have deep inside you knowing that you kept Smedís Corner on the internet.

And, until midnight tonight, if we get 25 more readers pledge to Smedís Corner, an anonymous donor will match, dollar for dollar, every pledge that we received today.

So wonít you consider a pledge to Smedís Corner?

I want to talk about the operators here tonight as well. Theyíre selflessly giving of their time for this cause Ė to make sure that Smedís Corner programming remains on the web, free of charge.

So please, give during this pledge drive. Letís meet our goal and keep the great essays on the web!

Thank you, itís 19 minutes past the hourÖ
