This blog is free, the same way that WordPress is free: You can use it without paying and then, if you’re ever convinced that the time and effort to produce it are worth something to you, you can help support it with a modest donation.
In this case, “modest” means $2.99 per month.
Blog posts come out daily except when they don’t. Your donation does a lot more than help me buy beer and the occasional spare tube. It makes me feel like what I’m doing has value. It communicates respect and it creates self-respect. Of course, the same thing could be said — and will be said — for readers who take the time to comment and engage in dialogue. The only difference, perhaps, is that I haven’t yet figured out a way to swap comments for beer.
But I’m working on it.
Here’s the link if you’re feeling generous, and in any event thanks for stopping by.
