I will always write for the love of writing, because once you start writing with dollar signs in your eyes you lose a very important part of your creative self. However, as an unemployed writer, I sometimes consider this blog as a sort of new-age form of busking. I have seen a Donations button a couple of other writers’ blogs and, although it feels strange to even add a button like this to my own, I figured that the way things are going for me (and pretty much everyone else) financially these days, it couldn’t hurt. This is a huge shot in the dark and I really don’t expect anything to come out of it. I really do just appreciate time people spend on my blog, and hope to someday be able to make a comfortable living from writing alone, but until then it’s just me, a whole lot of job-hunting, and some cheeky little risks like this.
If you enjoy my writing and would be inclined to throw pennies into my hat if you saw me busking in the street, a click on the picture below will take you to a donations page. Of course, if you would prefer to comment below and curse me out for having the audacity to include such a page on my blog, that is equally understandable! Either way, I think we’re on the same page.
