For the longest time I was looking for a place that had all of the days best tech-related articles. I was sick of sifting though hundreds of items in my RSS feed and all the other sites that relied on user submissions and votes were often filled with older articles or had stuff that wasn't very interesting.

All these frustrations led me and my co-founder Keith to built something called The Tech Block: A site that focuses on "Good Tech Reads" with absolutely no bias as to where it comes from. Whether it's written by a larger well-respected writer or by a "nobody", it doesn't matter. All we care about is whether the article has substance and provides a meaningful point of view. In fact, many of the articles we link to are written by everyday people, like yourself.

What we'd like to do with your support is expand on this idea and feature indie writers exclusively on The Tech Block and pay them for their work. You see, so many indie writers write on their own personal sites and get absolutely nothing for it. Sure, some put ads and some try to solicit donations, but the truth is most of them make very little if anything. We want to try and change that by giving each featured writer who's content is published on The Tech Block $100 for their content.

If we can manage to get your support, we'd like to publish at least 10 articles per month. Do the math and that comes out to $1000 paid each month to indie content creators. It would also be great to be able to cover our expenses of running the site (hosting, feature/design updates, etc). With your support, both Keith and I could focus even more time on improving The Tech Block and making it a great place to consume great tech articles.

If we manage to publish just 10 articles per month, you're basically paying $0.10 per piece. That's insane! Seriously, what can you buy for $0.10?

For just $5 bucks per month, if we can get to our first goal ($2000), you're looking at $0.50 per article. If by some miracle we get to our final goal ($20,000), you are paying roughly $0.17 per article. You can't even get a gumball at that price.
Goals
$0 of $2,000 per month
Help us get to $2000 a month and we'll publish 10 indie-written articles per month! Each writer will receive $100 for his or her efforts.
