The Five Buck Solution

Just another bleg. Thanks to all those who've sent donations so far; I appreciate it, and you'll be getting your thank yous. (In fact, for once, some already have.)

I always note this because it's true: I have a lot of readers. Well, not a huge amount, but a lot. About 5% or 10% seem to donate, and that's pretty sweet. They usually donate between $10 and $100.

But I always pine for the five buck solution: What if large number of readers donated some small amount like five bucks? Or even three? Small donations coming from a huge pile of readers adds up to genuine money pretty quickly.

I realize that a lot of people just don't feel like paying for a blog, or don't like putting their credit cards on line. Fair enough. But for anyone who's thinking "I"d like to donate something, but I don't have much," honestly, were half this site's readers to donate some small amount it would result in a huge pile of cash.

Huge pile of cash = Ace in a good mood = Ace making with teh funny and not whining so much.

I feel like a douche asking twice in one day, but I forgot to say this in the last post, and I think it should be said. If a three, five, or seven buck donation is all you think the site is worth, please don't refrain just because you think it's a small amount and not worth it. It is a relatively small amount, but still appreciated. And if all those who were thinking "Well, the site's okay, but not worth more than three bucks to me, so what's the point?" overcame that and just donated that amount, well, I don't want to say I'd be on easy street, but it would be a great big pile o' cash that I could use to buy Hobo Traps and Hobo Restraints.
