Donate a Dollar $1

1110_crumpled-dollar-bill_416x416While I was recording Episode 54 of the podcast today I was looking at the website statistics. I reset the stats two weeks before we released Episode 53. According to the stats we have had 18,500 visitors to our website in the last six weeks. It occurred to me that if every visitor to the website donated $2 we would be able to create content here full time. Podcasts, Articles, Video and more. Now $2 may be a little ambitious so here is what I propose. Everybody donate a Dollar. $1.00. Everything that is currently free for you to use here will remain free but everybody can afford a Dollar. Most things cost more than that. Lets see how many will donate and if we can get into going into full production here. Click the paypal link to get started. I will be interested in seeing where this goes.

 

 

Thanks
