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.
