Please Support The Strata-Sphere

Published by at 12:56 pm under All General Discussions

Folks, I cannot tell you how honored we are to have such a great readership and commentary on this site. It is your interests and feedback which keeps me plugging away at trying to provide some insight and perspective on the current events of the day. A little over 3 years ago, when we started the Strata-Sphere, I never imagined we would be seeing traffic as we have today. For that I am forever grateful and touched.

This is a family run endeavor which we support financially with pride. But as we have grown so have our costs (we are now operating on a dedicated server which I am sure will have to be expanded on in the coming year). So it is with great humbleness that I ask for some assistance from our readers to support the site.

If folks could drop a few nickels into the Pay Pal donation button on the upper right hand side I promise to keep eating up all my free time to do what I have been doing now for 3 years. We appreciate the donations we have received in the past and always redouble our efforts with every dollar that comes in. If folks are not inclined to donate, we then hope you will do all your Amazon shopping through our click-through button also on the top right. We do get some portion of your purchases back from Amazon whenever you start your shopping here.

And if you are so inclined to do both all the better! Thanks for your support and interests. Thanks for your time and feedback. And thanks for any support you can provide us in continuing this grand experiment of the electronic public square.

Cheers, AJStrata

    I don’t have paypal anymore, but I will go check out the Amazon link. How much do you get back?

  4. AJStrata says:

    Terrye, you don’t need Pay Pal to donate. I am not sure how much we get (something like a 1-2% of the purchase???)/

    A.J. you know i really don”t to much responding on many of your
    great posts, But ont thing i have always said is to donate at least 50$ per year the price is so cheap to get the the wisdom that you are kind of nice to give us in so many different catorgories that 1dollar a week is the cheapest investment i have made for the last 30 years . the next time i donate you can count me in for another 50 which i did today . P.S. thanks for the travel mug i use it every day!

    I know we had a rough conversation on immigration awhile ago. But that didn’t, and doesn’t, stop me from admiring your insight. Thanks for your time, and I threw in a few quid…

  14. AJStrata says:


    Strong debates bring admiration and respect. You have mine!

    And thanks ever much for the few quid

    Cheers, AJStrata
