Nine months ago I stopped showing ads on this site, and replaced them with a donation button at the bottom of most posts. It asks you to buy me a coffee, a $3 US donation. But really, I’m using it to buy film and cameras and other photographic things to share with you here.
I figured I’d get at most a few donations. But to date, you’ve bought me 79 coffees. Thank you!
To my great surprise, that is a larger amount (even after PayPal’s fees) than I made in any nine months of running ads.
I used coffee money to buy the two packs of Polaroid film I featured today. Whoo-wee, is that stuff expensive at $25 per pack!
Like I said when I killed the ads and added the donation button, the small stream of income is nice, but not necessary. I can afford my photography and blogging expenses. I just want to offer an opportunity for you, if you like, to partner with me to fund more film, cameras, and adventures. If you do, you can click this “Buy me a coffee” button to send me $3. My favorite color film costs about $3 a roll, so it’s perfect.
Clicking that button can be your way of saying you appreciate my work and want me to keep at it. But if you never click that button, you’re welcome and wanted here.
