We’ve officially made it into the second week of 2023. In just seven days, this blog has already welcomed nearly half of the visitors it saw in all of 2022! I only started in September, granted, but I’ve been blown away by how many people have found my peculiar interests and obsessions compelling enough to stop by. I have no doubt that it’s going to be a great year here!
Few things validate my work more than when I see that someone connects enough with a post I’ve made to like, share, or comment on it. That being said, I’ve received a handful of messages from people asking about other ways to support my work. If that describes you, clicking this “Buy me a coffee” button will take you directly to a service called Ko-Fi that lets you send me three bucks.
I like a good cuppa as much as the next guy, but coffee is simply Ko-Fi’s metaphor of choice: instead of a latte, your $3 will help fund my research adventures, gasoline, and hosting costs. Ko-Fi has no fees, its platform is secure, and it’s super easy to use.
Moving forward, I’ll drop that inconspicuous button at the end of each post. If something I write really resonates with you, I’d be grateful for your support! Of course, your readership is appreciated just as much whether or not you donate: this blog is my hobby, not my livelihood, and thankfully I have a day job that means I can afford to publish it. Frankly, that hasn’t always been the case.
Whether you read, like, comment, share, or donate, I’m happy for the chance to bring my weird passions to you without running annoying ads or hiding behind a paywall. I’m thrilled that you’ve stopped by, and I’m excited to see what the coming year brings!
