Another action-packed year has come and gone for this here website thingy, which in a few months will mark its 16th anniversary. Unreal! I want to sincerely thank all of you, longtime JMG flying monkeys and newbies alike, for coming along on the endless Trump-zaster that 2019 has been.
While the last year has seemed like nothing but an infinite stream of what-the-fuckery, at least it ends with Trump’s impeachment and the prospect of a humiliating Senate trial.
As I mention in this post every year, aggregating breaking news is like a homework assignment that is never done, but is always due. Per my dashboard, the past 12 months saw just over 10,600 JMG posts, which seems insane. But you all make it a lot easier with your emails, your story tips, and your participation.
I thank you all for your robust opinions and for making the JMG comments section, by far, the most lively in the entire LGBTQ blogosphere. I’m happy to have met so many of you at our JMG meetups and look forward to meeting many more of you over the next year.
Lastly, I want to extend a big furry hug to all of you who hit the JMG tip jar. Digital ad rates have cratered and half the world uses ad blockers, but thanks to you, we’re managing to keep the lights on.
And on that front, as of tomorrow PayPal is upgrading me to a business account (fancy!), which means that I’ll get an email address for almost everybody. Allegedly! Therefore expect a thank you email from me if you haven’t gotten one yet and maybe a duplicate if you already have because I’ll want to make sure.
NOTE: Don’t panic if we have a late start in the morning. I’ve got a solid crew of gay homosexuals to hang with tonight and they have vowed shenanigans. Squee!
UPDATE: Ack! I forgot to thank our behind-the-scenes tech support team of Russ and Jack, who jump into action whenever the fuckheads try to fuck with us. Thanks Russ and Jack!
