Why Do We Do This?

As you've seen in the past here at theNewK, we like to sometimes post
an email that grabs our attention.

And this installment, features a question we not only get asked online, but
in our everyday lives.

We aren't figuring that this post will make it so we'll never have to answer it again.

We just though some of you wondered the same thing "Mike P." did...

Hey newk. How do you make money with this site?
Mike P.
We responded...

Dear Mike P.

We don't make any money at all doing this site. To be honest, we spend a good amount of cash to do it. Thanks for the email!

Mike P. wrote us back with the normal follow up question that we get...

Then why do you do it?
Mike P.
And we responded...

Dear Mike P.

That's a very good question, and we get asked that a lot. The reason we do it
is because we are proud of where we are from, and we want to shine a bright
beam of light on the good things around here. Sure, we make fun of stuff, and
crack jokes about being perverts (which is fairly true), but we have a tremendous
sense of community and this is the best way we know how to show it.

And to address the monetary situation.

We are currently debating whether or not to sell the "I heart Biff" t-shirts on
the site. Now, we understand that those shirts won't afford us many comforts
in life, but they may help with our short term cash flow issues. Like web costs,
flea market deals, and more importantly...Wingapalooza.

Thanks again for the email, and please keep reading.

Maybe you and Mike P. were thinking the same questions.

If so, I hope that helps ease your mind.

Either way, that's why we're here.

Like us, or hate us...

We're staying.

On a totally unrelated note. I lost my grandmother this past Tuesday evening.
And to be honest, I'm not the most religious person in the world. But I fully believe
that she is reunited with my grandfather, and they are out in his little aluminum
fishing boat, catching loads of panfish and putting sunblock on each other.

Just typing that allowed me to cry for the first time.

I now have another reason why I do this site.
