Help Keep the News Free!
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favor to ask.
More people are reading Ark City Daily Bytes than ever, but it’s almost impossible to support this endeavor on advertising alone.
We are a small business enterprise. There are only two of us, and we appreciate each and every reader.
Unlike many news entities, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep journalism as open as possible because we believe everyone has the right to be informed.
Our independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and work, while feature stories require both time and patience to track down.
But we do it because we believe unbiased, factual journalism matters.
If everyone who reads this – and likes it – helped to fund this kind of journalism, our future would be much more secure.
For as little as $1, you can help to support Ark City Daily Bytes and keep journalism open – and it only takes a minute!
