    Hello all, Emer here! 

    The initial fundraiser met our initial goal of $300 USD exactly! With that mark out of the way, we can now focus on the next objective: raising money to upgrade our site to the newest Ning platform (Ning 3.0). We need to raise another $300 USD to reach that mark, but I know we can do it! A huge thank you to everyone who donated so far, and thank you to all who are considering donating!

    If you love TheSkyrimBlog as much as I do, then please consider donating! All proceeds go toward the future of the Blog. Your donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated! To donate, just click right here! 

    Thank you all for reading (and a big thank you to all who donated), and I will keep you updated on the amount that we have raised!

    UPDATE: 7/25- We are now at $530 USD!

    You can donate at any time, as the button is always here! However, we will be upgrading as soon as possible, so the sooner the better!

    Dropped you guys a 20 spot. Its been a while since I've even played Skyrim, but I've spent so much time on this website in the past (mainly obsessing over the character builds) figured I'd help out a little. Is there a deadline for the total $600?

    Thank you for the donation, demonwyrm! 

    No, there is no deadline for the $600, but the sooner it can be reached the better!

    Just curious, and this has probably been brought up before, but if we update does that mean it will cost another $600 next year?

    Ah, I see the problem. I'm assuming everyone has already discussed alternatives to handling this and this was the best choice. So I'm in. Once my check clears I'll be more than happy to chip in.

    What is NING 3.0?

    Looking at the poll, I'd say that going for the upgrade is the right move at the moment, but long-term, looking for a more flexible platform may be the answer.

    Wow! I didn't know we were so close to "maximum occupancy"! I get paid this Friday and will finally be able to chip in for such a wonderful site. Hands down best social network!

    How many members does Ning 3.0 support? And are there any cool features that might interest me and my fellow bloggers?
