Our vision at The New Americana is to be the news aggregator of choice for conservatives. That means not just being an alternative to Drudge, but to become our own center of conservative news and a voice for people who are tired of tribal politics and the single-party hegemony of the Republican-Democrats or Democrat-Republicans.
That’s why the Federalist Party is so invested in this site. There exists no better expression of American political will than creating a new political party.
For our vision to succeed, we must make this website stand out like a lighthouse in foggy sea. That’s not easy when the Internet is full of clickbait, invented stories, and uninformed commentary–never mind the sewer of some parts of social media.
The latest revision of The New Americana’s layout is intended to be reader-friendly and modern. We kept flashy graphics to a minimum, yet we wanted to highlight important stories and make it easy to take in the important issues of the day at a glance.
But a new and beautiful layout is not enough.
In order to make money, we have to get at least 20,000 visitors a day, and that’s just the bare minimum. We really need to get 50-, 100- or 200,000 visitors a day. By comparison, Drudge got 31 million visitors yesterday. If we got just 0.5% of that number, we have succeeded.
We can’t get there just doing what Drudge does, even if we do a better job (and I believe we do). The New Americana needs unique and original content.
Since I’ve been on board we’ve brought in a few writers, some new and some who have contributed in the past. We’re glad to have Eric Dixon, Jeremy Frankel, Konstantinos Roditis, David Boarman, Dan Alexander, Deborah Wiseman, Paul Caputo and my old friend Kelly Burke. But to succeed, we need daily content and a lot more writers.
If we get to a point where we are generating cash instead of consuming it, we will be able to pay writers, but right now, it’s a labor of love and determination.
If you have written a blog, or worked as a reporter or writer, and share our absolute disgust at the state of tribal politics, please email me and join us as a contributor.
Beyond writers, we need engaged readers. We want to provide content you like, and not waste time with content you don’t like. Now I could go out and get some expensive “like” buttons for stories like Facebook has, but you probably won’t click them. (In fact, JD Rucker told me he once spent considerable effort to add a “tweet” button to links and nobody used it.)
I’m asking you to simply to email me and let me know what you want to see.
To gain more readers, I ask you to share our site on social media. We’ll figure out some ways to make that easy for you, but just sharing The New Americana on Facebook and Twitter, or telling your friends to use us as a news home page would be enough for now.
Last is purely about money. I hate to talk about money but we’re not communists here running on the government dime. To succeed it will take money, and I humbly covet your contribution to our GoFundMe crowdfunding effort. We don’t need much, but every dime will help us.
Please consider giving whatever you can.
Last, I’m trying out a new logo. If you like this one, email me and let me know. I’ve got a few other logo candidates I’ll rotate through the site and whichever one is most popular with readers will stay.
Why is MyPillow our oldest sponsor? Because we only accept sponsorship from proven America First patriots. Support Mike Lindell and me by using promo code “JDR.” God Bless America.
You can help write our future.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
