Friday Cat Blogging – 30 September 2011

Yes, I’m still traveling. Sort of. Actually, right about now I should be sunning myself at Golden Gate Park, where we’re holding a MoJo staff picnic. But that doesn’t mean you don’t get catblogging this week. It only means that catblogging has been reduced 50%.

Sorry about that, Domino fans, but I just didn’t get a new picture of her before I left. What I got instead was a rare inside look at the working conditions here at blog central. I am, as you can see in this picture taken through my window, closely supervised. Until my supervisor gets bored, that is, which happens a lot. Still, you have to stay on your toes. It’s sort of a feline-opticon around here. 

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
