You may have noticed a new button over there on the right. Looks like a mug with a heart on it. Looks kinda like this:
Yeah, that’s the one. what’s that lil’ guy doing there?
Here’s the thing: back in the day I ran ads on my blogs. They never brought in all that much money, usually just enough to keep the lights on. But I never liked it. I’m not some fancy auteur who thinks I’m “too good” for advertising; I just don’t like feel of ads, they’re a distraction from the content.
So here’s my new solution: a tip jar. If you like this site, and you have a few bucks to spare, I’d love it if you drop me a tip.
ko-fi is great because every cent you drop in there goes directly to me. no middle men. I like that! 😆 Right now I’m playing with “ko-fi Gold” which costs me $6/month, but if three people every month chip in I’m still in good shape.
And Here’s What You Get
But this isn’t just a one-way street. When you drop me a tip in ko-fi you can make a little comment along with that tip. Why not make it an idea for a story or an essay? If it’s family friendly I’ll write it up and post it to ko-fi as a (timed) subscriber-only post.
Beyond being family friendly I really don’t have any limits. If you want me to write about you waking up as a bear in a new version of the Metamorphosis I’m game. If you like one of my stories or series and want more of that you can just yell “MOAR ANGEL LIZ” in the comments and I’ll get the hint. And you’ll have access to an Angel Liz story that won’t be on the site for at least 30 days.
Like I said, this is an experiment. Running these blogs isn’t exactly breaking the bank, but it’s not free either. I can’t wait to see what kind of weird stuff you wonderful people want me to write.
