A message from The Donkey: please send carrots

Thanks for coming to visit The Donkey. In our first month on line we notched up 3310 hits. To keep this journal interesting, we need your help. But don't worry - we're not asking much.

If you're a first-time visitor, you may care to read our Welcome Message

To keep The Donkey well-fed, we need information!

If a newspaper or magazine has run an item related to the morris, let us know and we may be able to get permission to republish. And if you've written a piece for one of the other morris-related journals, then why not have it posted up on Shave The Donkey too?

We want to hear your own news. If you're putting out a press release, send one to us. Or just drop us a line.

And we're looking for informants and reporters, to keep watch on various fields of the morris. You don't have to write for publication if you're not keen.

We're keen to find correspondents to cover:

* The Morris Dance Discussion List
* The internet (interesting new web sites, etc)
* The Morris Ring
* Open Morris
* The Morris Federation
* European morris (non-UK)
* Australian Morris
* New Zealand morris
* US morris
* Canadian morris
* Rapper
* Longsword
* Molly
* Border
* North-West morris

Shave The Donkey has the potential to provide a valuable service to the morris community, by improving the spread of information between the various factions. Please help us do this.

Without your help, there's a chance The Donkey will fail to thrive. An unexpected crisis arose at your beleaguered editor's sweatshop just as we went on line, and it may mean there'll be far less time in the day for writing stories.

Oh, and there's just one more thing: if we don't get more readers, we might just pack it in. Tell your friends about us!

We thank you for your support thus far and wish you... happy reading.
