The donate button
OK. So, for the last 17 months, I’ve been ghostwriting, which brings in a bit of income that has been extremely helpful to my family. Last year, it paid for our family’s (frugal) summer trip, and now any income I make is going toward a family emergency fund*.
I’ve had offers for more ghostwriting work, but it is so time-consuming and in reality, I just don’t have adequate time to faithfully commit to clients. Thus, I need to stop, which, of course, cuts off the income.
Weekly, I get offers from advertisers who want to use space on my blog in one way or another for pay, but I really want to keep this an ad-free blog, so you know you’re always getting 100% unbiased info… Well it’s biased to me and the stuff I like and personally recommend. But, there are no commercial enterprises represented here.
Hence, there on the right-hand side, you’ll see a new “Donate” button. Seriously: NO PRESSURE. I have no idea if anyone will contribute, and I am not going to twist anyone’s arm at any time; I’m just sending out feelers, more or less, to see if it will become a viable source of supplemental income…
I hope no one is offended.
(Hereby ends the least salesmanny salespitch, ever.)
*In other words, I’m not going to say something like “I have five mouths to feed”; our family is not going to be homeless nor starve if you don’t contribute.
