I have been working on the “Westcoast German News” blog for over ten years and am still not making enough money to live on. The German Canadian magazine “Das Schwarze Brett” was first published in 2016 and it is a little better, but still not allowing me to meet my financial needs. So, I have finally decided to implement an idea that I have been toying with lately, and that is to start a European News blog that would allow me to expand my horizons and to reach a bigger audience.
This digital version of a newspaper will collect news from Europe and share stories taking place in western Canada. Everything from political news to business to art and travel, as well as the usual pages dedicated to classifieds, careers, obits, announcements & more.
At the moment, there are no steady readers, so everything is quite low-cost. If you sign up today and pay $25 a month for a year in advance for a banner ad on the home page, it will be only be $300 a year. Once there is an audience, the minimum charge will be $50 a month ($600 a year!), so it is best to get involved early.
The countries I am targeting are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
There are so many things to share – like CETA, Brexit, EURO, elections, tourism, flights & more. If you would like to send in some news that I can post, or if you want to place an ad, an obituary or a classified, then the current fees are like this:
- Home Page Ad – $25 a month
- Obituary – $10 a month
- Classified $10 a month
- Smaller ads scattered in place throughout the website – $5 each
Prices will double once the audience has been established.
