As the publisher/editor of The UFO Chronicles, I'd like to express my sincere appreciation for those of you who graciously submitted a monetary contribution in the month of January (as well as all of you who have donated last year and any time in the past) in support of this site and the work we do here—it is very much appreciated!

I'm proud to acknowledge readers in over 170 countries, and that we continue to grow exponentially.
As noted last month in our "monthly acknowledgment of appreciation donations blog," after 6 years we have added advertising sponsors to supplement donations; in visiting our sponsors, you'll find that quite literally almost anything can be purchased through them and at discount prices to boot.
That said, donations at this time–remain as the primary benefit in keeping us afloat. To that end, we need your support:
If you enjoy our site, and appreciate the work we do here, or to quote another great site–if you get something out of The UFO Chronicles, and if you can afford to do so, please give a little back; no amount is to small, and large amounts are humbly welcome.
From our meager start in January of 2005 we have grown to boast readers in over 170 countries, have over 3000 articles archived and some of the brightest minds in Ufology have contributed to our efforts via penscript, articles, op-eds etc. We’ve expanded to include video, audio and our own radio show is currently in the works. Lastly, and not to forget, this is a researcher’s enterprise, and accordingly, we are always engaged in said research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and various cases.
What began as a blog for myself and colleagues to put the proverbial pen to paper, as well as being a repository for current and historical UFO reports, has grown into a full-fledged e-zine and with that evolution comes the corresponding labor, time invested and costs to manage it.
As this became a full-time job (in the second year) and readership was continuing to grow exponentially, many suggested that it was time to line up some sponsors, and after 6 years we added sponsors last month (January 2011). Great care will be put into this effort in order to meld any such ads with our content and "hopefully" not be a distraction for the reader.
Notwithstanding, “donations” are still our main sustenance, and quite literally is what keeps us afloat; the notion has always been that given the high volume of readers, was/is to receive a modest stipend from a small percentage of those and that would more then suffice.
Re donations: from the onset the response was immediate, and some donations were gratefully substantial, and interestingly a large percentage was (and continues to be) from academics in different parts of the world. Although the monthly tallies are increasing from month to month they are slight and fall short of the ideal goal.
We wish all of our readers/contributors a very happy, healthy upcoming Spring season!
