And now for something somewhat different… from my previous attempt at fundraising.
Donations v1 was based at Patreon. It was much too much hassle for the return, so I put it down like a false hound.
Donations v2 is simple. It requires no subscription, holds no content hostage, and puts no pressure on anyone, including me. This time it’s more tip jar than patronage.
I have wonderful readers. A few have offered to contribute. If you’re one of them or would like to be, go to paypal.me/edevere17. The rest is straightforward, presuming you have a PayPal account. There are no predetermined amounts.
Most of my online costs are paid in US Dollars (USD), so that’s my preferred currency. PayPal handles conversions seamlessly. Gold sovereigns are also welcome, but please, no Canadian mining shares.
My direct costs include the recurring fees for the site’s domain and hosting account (WordPress business plan), and the purchase of source material or stock images when I’m unable to exhume or create what I need for free. I also contribute to a few fee- or donation-based websites that help me do what I do.
Donations are this blog’s only income. After four and a half centuries, I still haven’t figured out how to make more money than I spend.
I appreciate all donations of any amount, but what matters most is that you’re here. Thank you.
