I have this "Donate" button, over there towards the top of the right sidebar. I figured, what the hell, maybe someone's getting enough enjoyment, or useful information out of this blog that they'd maybe pay fifty cents for it. It's been there for nearly the entire eight years this blog's been in existence. In all that time, there has not been a single donation made. Not even when we were roaring hither and yon around the country in the Hare-Brained Express, and I was posting up a storm.
I had pretty much given up on getting rich off this blog. I had thought maybe I could get beer money, between the Donate button and the Google Ads, but no such luck.
But something changed today. I opened my emails and discovered that a donation of more than fifty cents had been made into the PayPal account! Significantly more! By someone I don't even know. And this, during a period when I've been posting at a rate of 4 times a year. Obviously, this is a call to do much better.
Thank you, person from Farmington, NM. I will try to do better. It's not like there hasn't been a whole lot going on around here. And if we get the water pipes replaced, and Margaret's yarn supply organized, you can most certainly sleep in the "Lincoln Bedroom" if you're ever down here.
Here's a picture from my recent trip to Kilbourne Hole.
