The donate button, that is. For all of you who have been, yanno, yankin' at the bit to click on it. (No, seriously. There aren't words adequate enough to express my appreciation for your support of this blog effort. And of me.)
So may I have your thoughts, please? I started removing the button during contests because an agent expressed concern that the button might be construed as having to "pay for agents to read," which is expressly against the tenets of the AAR. I disagree with this, since I'm not an agent and a donate button is not a "fee."
Not to mention the fact that a lot of you WANTED me to add the button. Or at least provide you with a way to send me chocolate and cashews.
But in the interest of avoiding confusion, I started removing it. And it's just one more Thing I have to remember to do during and after the contests.
What are your thoughts? Should I continue to remove it? Or is it okay to just leave it up there? I'll keep removing and replacing it if that's the best thing to do. But I thought I'd take your pulse on the matter, since you all are the ones who are donating. I'm just sitting here blushing. And trying to do the right thing.
Looking forward to your thoughts...
