Donations?

Posted on

I want to write this blog because I’m having fun doing it. I’ve been searching for an outlet and this suits me perfectly. I would love to do something only for the pure joy of doing it but I just couldn’t resist the temptation to research ways on how to monetize my blog. I know, it seems a little too soon right?  I mean this is only my third post, what am I expecting, RICHES?? No, I’m not. Although that would be freakin’ awesome. I was only curious as to how I’d go about it if I ever had enough traffic through here to make it worth my efforts. I found the usual links to Adsense and various other advertising placement sites but I also came across a fellow who just straight up asks for donations. At first I thought, “Christ man, way to go begging the general public to keep your blogging butt fed. Loser” but the idea started to grow on me. I went back to his article and read in more detail why he felt he was entitled to ask for a donation and, surprisingly, he made sense. He was dedicating full-time hours (which I admittedly don’t do) to providing the public with useful tips, insight, and support on a number of topics and doing it all for free. He asked for donations and only those people who felt they were able and he was deserving, would click the button. Everyone’s happy. No one’s taken for a ride. All on the up and up. I guess I just thought there wouldn’t be enough people who’d really just GIVE money away if they weren’t being charged and it wasn’t going to a charity. I may try it one day but by that time this post will be so far down the line that no one will know of my hesitation in adding the donation link. Perhaps they’ll think of me how I thought of that guy or maybe, maybe they’ll feel like sharing the wealth. Here’s to hope.

I've got a lot to say. I guess that's why most people start a blog, right? They've got thoughts, ideas, gripes, whatever, that they feel they must share with the world. Kind of egotistical, no? I mean, who's really going to read this? Am I so interesting that I can hold your attention over the rest of the world wide web? Strange to think that it could be possible. If you've read this far, you should know a little 'about me' as this portion is titled. Ok so, I live in Central Italy with my husband and daughter. He's an Italian citizen, I'm an American citizen which makes our baby...doomed, as well has a dual citizen. The cultures do more than clash. They kick, bite, and beat the crap out of eachother. You have to have a very worldly outlook to marry someone from another country. People around the world are raised very differently from one another. What's perfectly normal in one area of the world is cause for major concern in another. I stand in front of the fan to cool off when it's August and the heat is insane and the humidity keeps you sticky 24 hours a day. My husband is convinced I've some sort of superhuman powers to not have caught some serious illness by doing this. Sound senseless, it is. Italians are full of ridiculous beliefs that hold no ground outside the land of make-believe and nut-cases. But who am I to tell anyone that the sayings of their great-great-great Aunt Maria are bullshit? So I just listen and nod. Well that brings you a bit up to speed on my current situation, yeah? Ok so, read me blog now kiddies. Toodaloo!
