¡THANK YOU!

Frank Warren      As we put 2010 in the rear-view, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers, supporters & contributors a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

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 December (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.

CHANGES AHEAD

All that said, currently we are a 100% "reader supported" news publication/web-site and have attempted to keep this site free of unsightly advertisements; however, this year with great reluctance we will be adding some advertising in congruence with reader donations, which will be done in the most tasteful and fitting manner as possible.

Like last year, we will continue to expand the site, adding additional writers, as well as installing UFO reporting sections from different geographical parts of the globe (published in real time). Moreover, we have been working on adding our voice (literally) to the podcast-sphere and or Internet radio. To that end, we need your support:

LETS START THE NEW YEAR OUT WITH A BANG!

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.

Our Story

From our meager start in January of 2005 we have grown to boast readers in over 170 countries, have nearly 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 although that time has come, it isn’t something that I warmly embrace as your editor; largely because a site cluttered with ads just doesn’t set well with me.

With that in mind, (and as stated above) the decision has been made to add some advertising to the site; great care will be put into this effort in order to meld any such ads with our content and 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, prosperous New Year, !
