Kick In for Blog Expenses

This blog has always been and always will be free for anyone to read.  I do not accept advertising although WordPress does post ads in exchange for the free service.  There are however some expenses associated with the blog.  WordPress charges for such things as the ability to post video and file storage beyond the allotted amount that comes with the free service.  And on occasion I have to pay for FOIA requests.  My idea is this:  by keeping this page up year round, I can hopefully collect small amounts here and there to keep in an account which I can draw from when needed to pay blog-related bills.

I want to reiterate that the blog remains free to all.  You are not being asked to pay a subscription fee or anything at all.  But if you are financially able to kick in any amount and you feel inclined to do so, the information is there.

If I wind up short on the expenses, I will make up the difference myself.  If I have extra, I will hold on to it for future expenses (maybe even pay WordPress the ransom to kill the ads).  If someone kicks in $50 grand or their inheritance or something like that, I’ll quit my job and take up blogging full time!  In other words, I will use any donated dollars and cents responsibly.

    You’ve done enough for many dogs & cats, you deserve everyone’s support in some way.

    I’ll bet there’s not a person who reads this blog regularly that doesn’t have a stamp & at least one dollar at any time that they’re not using. Get off of it & send it to Shirley, folks!
