Let Keith know by making a donation.
We are Keith and Anna-Faith Mauck. We own and operate GoHaynesvilleShale.com (GHS). We are a community of landowners who share information about leasing, drilling and production.
With the pandemic’s affects on advertising, we are asking our community members to consider giving to keep this a place for networking, learning and promoting shale drilling. We want to ensure that we are able to continue operations through 2021
In the summer of 2008, we launched GHS to simply get answers to our own questions regarding leasing and drilling. My oldest was 2, she’s now 14! It was a pretty innocuous beginning, But when the website lit up with activity, I realized just how vital a service the website provided. It provided an edge that landowners did not previously have as land was leased and drilled by oil and gas companies. Over the years, landmen reported to me that they dare not begin their day without reading the latest chatter on our website. What we do is pretty powerful…yet simple!
We've been helping each other by sharing information and knowledge to assist each other in some very real and tangible ways. From single moms to retirees, thousands have been helped. They’ve gotten better leases for their minerals and have made better income. And it’s all a result of neighbors helping neighbors. And today, members continue to reap the benefits.
Thousands of landowners monthly continue to visit our community to glean and share information. My hope is that our network will continue to thrive and make a difference for landowners with mineral ownership. The Ark-La-Tex needs a place to discuss these important issues.
The sites have always been 99% funded by advertisers and we've worked hard to keep it that way. I want to keep the sites free and open for anyone who wants to join and participate, or join and simply read. This has been made possible through great advertisers and a loyal audience. However, with the pandemic, this has become very difficult. In 2020, we lost our main advertiser, an oil and gas event company, so we are reaching out to you. We've cut expenses, but there still remains fixed expenses.
We want to be sure that the network's fixed expenses will be covered for 2021 which will permit it to remain live. These expenses include software services and server expenses. Your donation will help us plan for a successful 2021.
And by the way, no donation is too small. Each donation is encouragement to keep plugging away.
Thank you for considering a donation!
You're welcome, Keith. My best to the family.
I did it! Many thanks for GHS. It has been great for so many, many people - including me.
Thanks,HANG. By best to the family and happy holidays. Take care, stay safe my friend..
I hope that HANG putting the donation total over the target number will not dissuade those who have not donated as yet from doing so. Please show your appreciation for GHS by making a donation in whatever amount is appropriate for you. Every donation, no matter the amount, is an affirmation for Keith and Anna-Faith that members are benefiting from the work they put in to keep the website free for all who may need it.
Hi Skip, You enjoy the holidays and stay safe too! Actually, I checked and someone Anonymous dropped in the last bit of cash - I was about $18 short of the target!!
It's great that it was raised in just a few days. This site has been a godsend to average people who don't understand O&G.
HANG ( and, I'm still Hopeful About Natural Gas)
I would like the membership to consider a new target donation total. $2500. We are at $2,110 now. If members will contribute another $340, I will pledge another personal donation of $50 to get us to $2500. No donation amount is too small and your donation can be made anonymously.
The modest amount of $2500 should be considered an investment in the cost of keeping the website online. And providing direct benefits for mineral owners. Consider it a way to help cover overhead and hopefully keep Keith and Anna-Faith from having to pay out of their own pockets to keep the website available for free.
Just kicked in some $$$.
just added a little chunk to the cause
Happy holidays, JHH.
Thanks... you too and stay safe!
