Advertising will be re-enabled for guests only starting this Sunday and lasting for probably about a week. Doing this because the YWS advertising account with Google Adsense is currently just below the $100 threshold for payment. The advertising funds will go toward December's donations goal.

In 2007, I purchased a 10-year domain registration for youngwriterssociety.com from GoDaddy. In 2013 (or thereabouts), I transferred the domain registration to Google, which extended the registration period by another year. So today marks the first time I've actually had to renew the domain since 2007!

In doing so, I also transferred registration from Google to Cloudflare, which I'll be doing with all of my domains as they come up for renewal. It only costs $8.03/yr with privacy protection, which is incredible to me.

No specific place to post this, but we're getting closer to YWS' server costs being completely covered each month. Recurring donations are now responsible for covering $116 a month, and thank you to everyone who has that set that up. On top of that, the server is now hosting a second large website that is covering another $50 of the hosting costs. I'm actively trying to get a third website too, so keep your fingers crossed!
