Hi all!

Last week, more than 20,000 people read the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). But out of 20,000 only less than 70 clicked on the link to support the Dublin Event Guide as described below. So my strategy of trying to give as much valuable, high-quality information as possible and hoping for lots of support in return, did not work out. :-O

This week I will try a different approach then! Still high-quality information, but a good bit less. Maybe that is a better strategy?

Your help is needed to keep the “show on te road”, but don’t worry, helping doesn’t cost you a cent and only takes 30 seconds of your time!

This is how the support works and it is super easy:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the rectangular ad that is shown at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) If you click on the ad, I get between 5 and 30 cent. That is not much, but if enough people help, it will do the job to cover the cost to keep the Dublin Event Guide going. Thanks! :-) Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide

And now we come to some of this weekend’s free events. All events are sorted by start time, but watch out for the few events that have a “++” in front of them, the are particularly recommended. ;-) ALL events in this list are free, but some require booking!
