SitePoint Podcast Special: .net Awards Announcement

Tweet

The SitePoint Podcast is one of the three finalists for Podcast of the Year at the .net Magazine Awards 2010!

Podcast co-host Kevin Yank would love to attend the awards ceremony in London, UK on November 18th, 2010, but to do so he needs the support of you, our loyal listeners!

Click here to lend your support to: Send the SitePoint Podcast to the .net Awards and make a donation at www.pledgie.com !

We estimate the cost of the trip to be $3,000. We recommend a donation of $5 to $10, but obviously the more you can contribute, the closer we’ll be to getting Kev to the awards.

Want more details? Listen to Kev’s announcement below.

Update: As it appears we were not on track to meet our goal, we have canceled the fundraising effort and are seeking an alternative means to fund or otherwise justify the expense of the trip. Those of us who put our spare time into the podcast would like to send a heartfelt thanks to those listeners who did send in donations, all of which will be refunded shortly.

    Hey, I just went to make my donation. I can’t believe you gave up already. It takes me days to get to a podcast, this is not radio guys! Too bad it was such short notice, I am sure your listeners would come through.

    Anyway, best of luck with the award.

    My initial reaction 3 days ago to this request for donations was that it was inappropriate for a company that is not a not-for-profit organization to ask for donations for something it should be paying for. Sitepoint, think of it as a bonus for Kevin for doing such a great job. Today, I decided to make a donation anyway (but then found the campaign was cancelled) because I would think of it more as a donation to support the Sitepoint podcast service. As a freelance web designer working from a home office, I find the Sitepoint podcasts are a great source of information about latest trends & news in the industry. Keep up the great work!

    BTW, I’m still willing to make a donation.
