Bring CofA Blog back to life

If you love the work of City of Angels Blog and want to see it start back up again, please respond to the appeal in this post.  Main reason I'm not blogging lately is I'm really sick. Since I'm a California resident and I'm staying in a different state, I can’t get access to health care and medicine I need.  So I need to ask my readers to please help me get home by clicking the PayPal button on the left and using your credit card on PayPal's secure server to send me High $5’s and help me get back home. The PayPal "Donate" button is in the left hand column here at City of Angels Blog 

It was probably a mistake for me to have left L.A. in the first place.  In Fall 2010, trying to make the blog better by going national, I put myself in this precarious situation where now I'm sick and since I'm not in my home state, I can’t get health care.   By clicking five dollars or higher onto my PayPal account you can help me raise the funds I need to get back to L.A. or if you'd rather, send me an email at cityofangelslady @ yahoo dot com. 

I need to get back to California for several reasons.

I still have the same job I've had since 1998, doing transcription for TV shows.  In the past few months my work has been disappearing.  When I get back to L.A. I can meet with people in person and line up more work, which I can’t do from two thousand miles away.  I have to get home to L.A. to find out where the jobs have gone. 

I thought going on the road would help City of Angels Blog but it didn't.

I left L.A. in November 2010 in an attempt to take City of Angels Blog to a higher level by interviewing pedophile priest victims in cities where they live. I  also hoped to go document diving at different courthouses around the country.  I just didn't realize how much being sick and not having a car would make that investigative journalism almost impossible.  Instead of producing groundbreaking stories, the last two and a half years I've been scrambling to keep a roof over my head.  I couldn't ride around New Mexico finding sources for pedophile priest stories in 2011, and now I can’t get around in Illinois to work on stories here.  I'm pretty much immobilized. 

Please Help

This is an appeal to people who have been reading City of Angels Blog in the years since it started in January 2007 with coverage ofthe L.A. Clergy Cases.  If a hundred persons put just five dollars on my PayPal account it would cover a big part of my moving expenses. 

Your five dollar or higher click on my PayPal account will help me get back to Los Angeles, get medical help, and hopefully bring City of Angels Blog back to life.

I just want to go home.  I'm making the move in June whether I have enough money or not.  It would just be so much safer and less scary if I had a little more cash to pay for train fare and to get into an apartment in L.A. [I'll probably get an apartment with my daughter who is also “housing challenged” right now].  

So I'm asking my readers for help. 

When City of Angels Blog was really rocking in 2007-2008, I was able to make a few hundred dollars a month extra with these “PayPal high Five campaigns.”

Now I just need a few hundred dollars to help me get back home.  (I report the PayPal cash to the IRS as freelance writing income.) 

I believe that when I get back to L.A. and get the medical care I need, I'll feel good enough to do the stories I've been promising readers at City of Angels Blog.  I've been unable to do the work it takes to produce a good blog post because I just don't feel good enough.  I need medical care, medicine, and transportation, all of which I'll be able to access once I get back to L.A. and I can’t access here in “Chicagoland.”

So I'm asking my readers to please click on the “donate” button in the left-hand column of City of Angels Blog, which will take you to PayPal.  There you can use any credit card to send me $5 or more on PayPal's secure server.  If PayPal does not work for you, email me at cityofangelslady @ yahoo dot com so we can make other arrangements. 

Hopefully when I'm back in L.A., City of Angels Blog will come back to life.  But right now, I'm just too sick and un-treated to be able to do the work I want to do with the blog.  I have several researched stories that I could finish and post, if I just felt good enough.  Getting back to California will make a big difference. 

Hope you can help.

Thanking you in advance for whatever help you can give me.

I'm crippled most of the time, unable to walk, because of what I think is lupus but without health care I don't know for sure what it is.  I have no way to get a diagnosis, let alone treatment.  I have other medical issues I'll be able to address when I get back to California, as well.  My teeth are falling out, I'm using drug store eye glasses.  When I get back to California hopefully I'll be able to tend to all these issues and feel good enough to start blogging again.
