From June 1998 to July 2012 everything on www.speech-language-therapy.com was provided free, at Caroline Bowen's expense. The site's increasing popularity, and the huge volume of downloads, increased bandwidth costs to the point where donations were necessary. If enough donations are received annually, transfer to a pay-per-download or subscription arrangement will be avoided. But, as the table here shows, there is currently a discrepancy between downloads and visitors, and donations. For example, from January 1 to November 30 2015, the site had 27,218,688 file downloads (1,372,160,018 kilobytes or 1,372,160.018 megabytes), 2,154,504 visitors and 75 donations. The more visits and downloads there are, the more the site costs to maintain. On December 3, the site was $643.00AUD short of covering its costs for the year.
If you download speech-language pathology.com resources, and find them useful, please make a donation within your means. Monies go directly to the site owner, Dr Caroline Bowen, and are used to keep the site up, running and maintained to a high standard. Friends, Donors and Affiliates are acknowledged on the thank you page.
