Honestly … There Are Some ‘Beautiful’ People Out There

When Barbara and I set up this website, we used a chunk of our retirement savings. It wasn’t in our minds to make a lot of money out of it.

Sure, we hoped we’d eventually have a large enough audience to make the website attractive to advertisers and produce some income that way.

However, being total novices, we didn’t anticipate some of the hurdles we’d have to jump.

Take this for example: When we started in May, it was costing us $10.00 a month for web hosting.

We figured that wasn’t too bad …  equal to about 12 small gas bottle refills a year. Heck, surely we could afford that to help others.

But then, on 09/10/16, we had a feature story on a big big bargains website. We told how we were saving people lots of money on gas bottle refills.

Well, our website went ballistic! We had so many ‘hits’ (internet lingo for ‘page views’) the site crashed.

Just like the recent census debacle.

Seems we didn’t have enough gigabytes of bandwidth. The solution … pay an extra $20.00 a month for more gigs of bandwidth!

Now we are outlaying the cost of 18 BIG bottle refills a year.

Yeah … we are outlaying the equivalent of 18 9kg refills a year so we can save our website members a heap of money on theirs!

When we related this scenario on the bargains website, quite a few said “why don’t you suggest people make a small donation.

If you are saving them up to $15.00 on each gas buy (and some have told us they are), surely they wouldn’t mind donating, say $5.00 …  the cost of a cup of coffee”

Honestly … we’re very iffy about the suggestion, but if you’d feel good doing it … well then, we’d certainly appreciate it.

As we said in the headline … there are some ‘beautiful’ people out there

Thank you GBR for your site.  So easy to navigate and it certainly gives me the very best prices for local refills.  I am very happy I found you.  🙂
