I just added a “tip jar”, i.e. “Buy Me A Beer” Paypal donation plugin.

Since I’m not a drinker, I am using the coffee cup graphic.

While researching and visiting other blogs, I’ve run onto the “Buy Me A Beer” plugin. I asked myself, if it was offensive, but decided it’s not. Most of us are struggling bloggers, with some overhead to pay. Blogging takes us away from time we could be spending working a part-time job and earning a wage, however, we all feel we have something valuable to contribute to society. Hence, we spend our free time, planted in front of our computers, busily researching and posting information, we hope our readers will find valuable.

So, if the information we share with others holds value, maybe some of our readers will feel compelled to make a contribution to our “cause”. After all, aren’t most blogs, actually like “non-profit” organizations? We, too, have a “cause” we believe in.

Do you want to add the “Buy Me A Beer” (Coffee) plugin? Go to,www.blogclout.com. The plugin was written by Ankesh Kothari. Great job, Ankesh.

    Hello Barbara,

    I have tries to install “Buy Me A Beer” a couple of times on my site but have failed. Can you suggest what could be the problem? I use wp version 2.8.4

      Hi Randy,

      I haven’t tried using the plugin lately, but it may not be compatible with WP 2.8.4. You might check on the plugin site and see if the author is updating it, or if others are having the same problem as you.
