Auto bloggers can have a comfortable life. If you choose the “right” brand, you will live relatively comfortably under the caring care of the same. There are invitations for events, test cars every now and then, and the odd financial support.
As I said, it has to be the right brand. Most manufacturers have recognized the advantage of retaining influencers. It gets colder when you've chosen a manufacturer that no longer exists. Then you stand alone in the world and can see where you are.
However, it is extremely rare for rational people to volunteer for such projects. With Saab it was a special thing from the beginning. In the main heart-affair, one could not hope for laurels. The target group was too handpicked and the brand was always clammy. Nevertheless, there is the blog, and for almost 8 years.
As always, we are asking for donations towards the end of the year. A blog has expenses, and without money, nothing moves at the biggest heart issue. We had for the budget 2017 and 2018 Defined goals. In a year we had just reached the budget, once we have missed it very close. We had repeatedly advertised for other supporters from the Saab workshop environment, but to no avail.
This year we save ourselves the effort. Every reader should give what he wants and can and what the blog is worth to him. By Paypal or by bank transfer. We are happy to provide you with the current bank details of the blog by email. (please mail to: donation (at) saabblog.net) We will publish the donation status at regular intervals and wait patiently to see what happens.
Blog donation monthly or once?
In recent years the question has arisen again and again whether you can donate monthly. Yes, that is also possible! If you want to send us a smaller amount for our work on a regular basis, you can do so via PayPal.
The blog is a collaborative project of readers, guest authors, team and bloggers. How we look at the Saab Blog Mission 2019 I sketched last week. We would be happy to continue writing 2019. It will not be easy, but we would be there with joy and heart.
