For many years now this blog has been non-profit. Apart from the links to my books everything on it has been free of charge.
I intend to keep all the basic blog articles and forums free, though it’s possible I might in the future introduce some sort of premium membership. But what I do intend to do sooner rather than later is to start selling things like ebooks and suchlike. Since I am aiming to earn money from the website it’s no longer non-profit. So I’ve changed the Donate button to a Buy button as Paypal’s Donate button is intended only for non-profits and charities.
However at the moment the only thing for sale is to be one of my supporters! This website doesn’t come free for me, so the money I’ve had in the past from donations has gone some way towards meeting the expenses of running it.
You can still help me in this way by being a Supporter, a Bronze Supporter, a Silver Supporter or a Gold Supporter. I had to invent silly names like these because Paypal’s Buy button requires definite pricing and a description of what you are buying.
At the moment you get nothing but my thanks if you become a supporter, but I expect to be offering regular incentives for each grade soon. If you want to give now rather than wait, I will make the first of these incentives retrospective to anyone who becomes a supporter from today.
If you want to give an amount other than the ones shown and you have a Paypal account, you can send any amount to me through Paypal for email@example.com.
You’ll find the button in the right margin. It looks like this (and this one is “live” if you want to use it!)
Unfortunately the new button proved not to work properly, so I’ve removed it while I’m in the process of sorting it out.
