PrepperGroups.com began as a single, long, scrolling page on my personal website back in the 1990’s. Preppers would email me their details and I would enter them onto the page as they came in.
These days it’s a stand alone site where preppers from around the world create their own posts or respond to posts made by others.
The site fees, domain fees, https fees, Cloudflare security fees, Wordpress plugin fees are all a drain on my personal finances (and I’m getting by on a disability pension).
It used to be that Amazon affiliate earnings paid for the site, but the decreased % now paid by Amazon and the fact that most people using the Amazon links don’t go on to actually buy anything – has now led to Amazon saying they will reduce even further my affiliate earnings. (A penalty for tying up their servers or some such nonsense.)
Banner ads used to chip in too, but these days ad blockers mean that there’s little to no money to be had in hosting affiliate banners on a site.
And so, here I am. Hoping that I can make some money through Patreon to keep PrepperGroups.com online for the next few years.
PrepperGroups.com is one prepper site where racial, religious, sexual or political abuse is NOT tolerated.
If you can help keep it online, it would be most appreciated.
