I vow to never sell out and stick ads on the blog. But that doesn’t mean I can’t try and make some money out of it, does it?
You may have seen that I’ve loosely scattered a few ‘buy-me-a-coffee’ buttons across the blog. Well, despite just realising that most of these weren’t actually linking anywhere, to date 5 random soles have made a donation. The Interweb is a crazy old place and receiving money from folk you’ve never met is quite odd, but also nice and warming. Of course, you’re not really buying my a coffee (ghastly stuff), but it’s a symbolic gesture that demonstrates your gratitude. It’s pretty neat to know that some of the information I’ve shared has actually been of use to someone.
I stuck a similar button on BusSongs.com some months ago, but have yet to receive a single donation – even though it gets x860 more exposure. I guess you’ve really got to help, rather than entertain, to get into peoples wallet.
