I’ll go into detail on each blog over the course of the week but as of today there is a PayPal button on all of my blogs. For the time being they’re there if you would like to provide financial support. That’s why they’re there overall. To repeat what I said in yesterday’s blog you DO NOT need a PayPal Account to send someone with a PayPal account money. This is a common assumption people who don’t like PayPal or just aren’t aware of have. When you click the button you will see the same screen you’d see if you clicked one of the donate buttons in the forums. I changed the link in the button code to direct folks there for the sake of convenience on the users’ part.
There’s no minimum. Just give what you can. Wait actually there are exceptions when it comes to my original work over at Aurabolt’s Fiction Press. I will be selling digital copies of my stories starting next month. More info on that will come tomorrow along with pricing for select stories. Aside fromt that it’s up to you. In case anyone’s wondering aside from goods or services offered for sale from time to time there will be no charge to continue using my blogs and forum. My reasons for adding the PayPal buttons are purely commercial to be blunt but unlike some sites I will not modify the site in ways to force people to pay to make use of the blogs.
When I have something for sale it will be announced in the blog the service or goods pertain to.
I figure I pick now to introduce a new feature: PayPal Donation buttons.
Those who frequented the original website and forums may remember them. They were everywhere. And they were were never used. Not even once. I’m hoping that’ll change thanks to the blog ring I’ve established here on WordPress.
I’m not home at the moment so for now Click here if you’d like to send me money. There is no minimum amount. Just whatever you feel like giving. Contrary to popular belief you DO NOT need to have a PayPal account to send money toi people who use PayPal.
If you need some incentive, here’s something: If I receive $50 or more by March 31 I will release the Power Points for the panels at Anime Boston 2013. While true I was already planning to release the powerpoints free of charge I’ll up the ante and say this: All who donate at least $10 get my Clannad Power Point as it will be when I use at at my panel. The finished product has music plus a couple stuff only subscribers will get access to.
Speaking of which, Supscriptions (through PayPal) will be coming to my Fanfiction, Fiction Press and Video Game Blogs. I’ll speak more to those in more detail on the respective blogs as all my blogs have a specific target audience in mind. I don’t want to confuse people ^_^
Anywho, the donation buttons should be up and running on all five blogs in the next day or two. If you like what you see and you’re sble to, I hope you’ll consider wiring me some funds!
