As it does every year, October raced by in a blur. I realized today that I hadn’t done any Free-supporting for the month. Oops, time to play catch-up!
…So I got to wondering: of all the personal blogs I read, how many of them offer me some way to give them monetary support? Intrigued, I embarked on a wholly un-scientific poll, visiting every one of the 60 personal blogs in my RSS reader and looking all over the homepage for offerings. What I found was very encouraging:
About 2/3 of the personal blogs I read have some way I can support them, and several of them offered more than one way. I was a little surprised by how large a percentage have some kind of product/service for sale, but in retrospect, I don’t know why that should surprise me. All in all, I’m just glad to see all these opportunities!
Cash is a little on the tight side at the moment, as I’ve been traveling this month, but I did make two product purchases from favorite bloggers:
…And from Christina, I bought a PDF tutorial for making her awesome fabric boxes. I can always use more organization around here, she said, knocking over a large stack of unopened mail.
Anyway. As always, I thank you for witnessing this little project. By the way, did you know that my Mom does monthly community support, too?
