“Don’t just watch us grow – join us” has certainly come true this past year as our subscriber list has surged.
And now during our Spring Donor Drive, the donations are rolling in, which helps us bring you the news every day in two big ways: First, we send you this daily newsletter which we like to call Wyoming’s Morning News and second, with our big web page, which is updated all day long with statewide stories.
Because we have so many subscribers — lots of you folks do not realize you can go to www.cowboystatedaily.com at any time and see the news updated all day long. You can even scroll down the site and catch up on the news for the past week.
We also love the compliments. Deb Lohse says: how refreshing to read your news each day! Thank you for real news. Keep up the good work!” Deb is from Linch, WY and sent her compliment on a note that read “I am having a Bad Horse Day,” ha. Thanks Deb.
“Keep up the good work. I really enjoy the Cowboy State Daily every day!” said Joanne Sterling of Lander.
Part-time Wyoming resident Susan Brown emailed us with: “Thank you for the great job you do covering Wyoming news every day. Your politics there are really crazy to me!”
Most of our donors donate by clicking on the “donate” button and paying by credit card. Unfortunately, this does not allow for comments. Thus, if you want to comment, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or send comments to email@example.com. We appreciate hearing from you.
We had over 200 responses on the first few days of our Spring Fund Drive and the checks and credit card payments are coming in.
With COVID pretty much in our rear view mirror, now is a time to be optimistic and look ahead. Cowboy State Daily has never been more popular and with that in mind, we invite you to donate during this Spring 2021 donation drive.
During tough times like we saw in 2020, it helps to have someone to turn to. In the past year, Wyomingites turned to Cowboy State Daily in record numbers. We anticipated your questions and we provided the answers.
Our staff answered these questions with nearly 2,000 stories, photos, videos, and by providing a daily newsletter to thousands of readers. That journalism helped thousands of people better understand how our state’s policies would impact their lives.
To top it off, the Wyoming Legislature just finished its session and we feel nobody covered the issues better than Cowboy State Daily.
Thanks for helping us continue our mission of keeping Wyomingites informed. In a year when information literally saved lives, we came through, thanks in no small part to your loyalty, which means so much.
Cowboy State Daily is owned by YOU. We are a 501 C 3 non-profit corporation. With ownership comes responsibility. We are reaching out to our 13,000-plus subscribers and asking you to make a tax-deductible donation to help us do our job.
Cowboy State Daily continues to grow. We have been adding 1,000 new subscribers per month for the past year. That pace is actually increasing this year.
Whether you chip in with a donation or with your continued attention, we’re so grateful for your support.
