Cash income in March was $10 in donations, versus expenditure of $13 for bank fees and $227.94 to renew all the domain names for two more years (we own webdiary.net.au and .org.au as well as .com.au). Cash in the bank at end March was $2,684.19. Google Adsense revenue in March was US$34.95, accumulated owed to us US$54.90.
The one donation was from the only remaining standing order to us from a webdiarist, for whom we don't have contact details. I have previously contacted all donors that I can reach to point out that our limited expenses** are currently essentially covered by our Google Adsense revenues - so if anyone knows who this kind soul is ... (but I can't tell you the name on the standing order, as donations are anonymous!).
** Current annual expenses: $156pa bank fees, $212pa company registration, $113.97 domain registration.
