My employment situation changed in March, and I'm still looking for full-time work. Although I'd love to do this blog (and related activities) full time as a volunteer, I need to be gainfully employed (for another 15 years or so).
I looked into various ways to 'monetize' this blog and found them all even less optimal than this blog-beg. Ads are annoying; founding a non-profit and getting tax-exempt status is expensive and time consuming; getting a percentage from amazon would require more hawking of books than I can reasonably do; finding sponsors for the blog would mean even less time actually blogging.
And so I ask you, dear readers, to consider sending a gift.*

I'd rather be independently wealthy, of course, than ask perfect friends and perfect strangers for money. I agonized for weeks about this post. In the end, though, I'm looking at it as a fair trade. I hope you do, too.
Thanks so much.
