Hi. I’ve just celebrated my 100,000th visitor to this blog (Tuesday 20th November 2012) and most of the people who’ve been involved (there is a summary of them here) know how much work it takes me to get everything together (a full-time job and then some) and keep this blog ticking over.
To-date I’ve not charged anyone for being involved and don’t plan to (and in fact, perhaps in my madness, declined a $30 offer from someone wanting to jump the queue!) but the time has come, after 20 months of doing this, where I have decided to bite the bullet and add a ‘donate’ button to the right-hand side bar (there’s also one below). The other option is to add advertising, of WordPress’ choice, and whilst they assure that it will be appropriate, I’d rather avoid this route and I’m sure most of you would rather see this site remaining advert-free.
For every donation of £2.00 and over, I’ll gladly send any of the following PDFs, just let me know which one(s) you’d prefer…
- 365-Day Writer’s Block Workbook (Vol 1);
- Story A Day May 2011 (or 2012 which will be released shortly); or
- The Serial Dater’s Shopping List (novel)
- other collections / workbooks / novel to follow in the next few weeks.
Thank you everyone who takes part in and / or reads this blog, it really wouldn’t be what it is without you all and of course thank you if you do decide to donate. It really helps.
