I setup this page because a number of readers asked how they could help out. If you enjoy reading this blog and would like to contribute in some way, here are some ways you might be able to do so. If you have any other ideas, please feel to leave a comment below, or email me at ryochiji at gmail.
While I think this goes without saying, some people seem to think that I feel entitled to support. So let me be clear: nobody is obligated to give me anything. If you can’t or don’t want to give, don’t. It’s that simple.
If you can spare a few bucks a month, even small contributions can add up over time, and I’ll receive recurring incentives to keep going. To subscribe, please click on a plan below that sounds reasonable to you. Subscriptions are handled by PayPal, and you’ll automatically be charged periodically for as long as the subscription is active, but you can cancel at any time (for example, if I get assimilated by the borg and end up a cubicle slave…).
One time donation
If you think I might waste monetary contributions on booze and women, and would rather donate physical objects, please get in touch with me by leaving a comment below, or by emailing ryochiji AT gmail. Here are some things I could use (as of December 12th, 2010):
- Sock liner
- Propane heater
- Car charger for DeWalt 18v batteries
- DeWalt 18v batteries
- 12V DeWalt battery (NiCad, not the newer Li-Ion)
- Solar panels (another 100W would be nice)
- 6v or 12v deep-cycle batteries
- pure sine-wave inverter
- Small wind turbine
- Gift certificates for Lowe’s, Costco, or Trader Joe’s
FREE ways you can contribute
Not all ways to contribute require money. In general, increasing readership can help me in many ways further down the road. Here are some things you can do to help:
- Become a fan on Facebook
- Share individual posts on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, etc
- Help me get an article/guest post/book/lecture deal
- Post comments, and say something nice
