Capitol Hill Blue will celebrate its 15th year on the World Wide web on October 1.
I’m hoping it won’t be the last anniversary for the web site that has become the oldest political news site on the Internet.
But times are hard and we find that revenue from the ads don’t begin to cover the expense of keeping this web site up and running.
We’ve instituted some cost-saving measures, including moving to smaller, less-expensive servers, and cutting back on the subscriptions to syndicated content but we still come up short each and every month.
Like most news web sites, Capitol Hill Blue has never made money. The ads only pay for part of the expense. For the last 14-plus years, I’ve made up the difference out of my own pocket and I’ve spent well over $100,000 doing so.
