    I found this part of the post very interesting:

    “I’ve been trying for months to get funding for Marcy so she can do what she does full time. I’ve been turned down by every major donor and donor representative I’ve asked. They’d rather create their own “astroturf” blogs.”

    It matches my own experience.

    Being the favored cause of patron not a very good business model. It’s a bit like marrying a rich spouse – a few people can do it, but it’s not widely applicable.
