I've added a donate button.
So if you ever feel like you want to see me a lifetime supply of organic cashews, but you're frustrated because I'm, yanno, anonymous, you can click the donate button instead.
I run the blog because I LOVE it. And I LOVE YOU.
Not gonna charge for stuff. Not gonna pretend there's a price tag. Because...there isn't.
But yeah, it's a lot of time. And I'm feeling it right now.
And if people start to feel annoyed by the donate button, it'll come down.
I've been encouraged by more than one person to give it a try. So I am. And no, I'm not REALLY planning on earmarking blog funds for cashews.
I mean, not REALLY.
You've been so amazing throughout this Baker's Dozen journey. Do you know, not a single person has yelled at me? Not one! Knowing the caliber of this community, I'm not surprised. But when you think about your average, public, entitlement-riddled groups of people, it IS surprising.
You are in a classy minority, to be sure.
Thanks for being here. And thanks for making me feel safe enough to even think about putting a donate button on my blog. Because it makes me a bit...squirmy.
That's that. Back to your regularly scheduled writing!
ETA: I've removed the button for the duration of the submissions process. It's probably a good idea to not let anyone get the idea that donations would in any way affect submissions. They wouldn't; but I've removed the button, anyway. *smile*
