I have had several of you privately email and ask if I wouldn’t put a little icon or a button that allows you to directly support the blog via paypal. I have been gun shy about doing this for two reasons:
1. I can’t find the widget to plug-in. The old widget is no longer hosted.
2. I feel tacky asking or even insinuating that I would enjoy the financial support.
I would love to just earn more ad revenue, but I’m trying to keep my blog as clutter free as possible. I also didn’t want the high paying, but rather annoying video players that automatically start to play when you visit my site. I tried it for a short time and it irritated me. So, that was nixed.
I’ve decided to add this little guy to my sidebar and to the footer on each page. (This picture above is not active-I haven’t figured out how to put it directly into my posts, yet.) It seemed classier than just an outright, “I would like a little of your money, please.”
If you go to the sidebar or the footer on each page, you can click on the “donate” button and it will allow you to support the weirdness found on Potholes and Pantyhose within a matter of seconds. I set the bar pretty low with a $2 donation. That about covers a cup of coffee.
So, what do you think-is this an ok thing to do, or is it tacky? I’d love to know what you have to say. After all, you are the reason that I do this.
