Thank you for your email!
I’ve always loved answering your emails personally and taking the time to give you advice.
At this point, however, I’m getting several hundred emails from readers each week. Answering them is unpaid work that takes me upwards of ten hours each week. I love doing it, and I think it’s important to be there for my readers, but it’s getting very difficult to make time for it when I could be doing work that pays my bills.
If I have answered a question of yours and helped you, or if you’ve found this site helpful or inspirational or entertaining and want to help keep it running smoothly, I would very much appreciate if you would consider making a small donation.
Your donations will go to operating costs of this site itself: hosting, tech support, paid plugins, cloud storage and backup, organizational dues, and other services that keep the site running fast and well. I’m also saving up to hire a designer to redo the site, something that I’ve wanted to do for the past three years.
Additionally, 25% of anything you send my way will go to charity: water, which brings clean water to communities around the world.
