— To help keep this site online and ad free —

I pay yearly fees to keep my four web site domains (and a growing number of subdomains) online, and I also pay for a web site hosting service to host all of my websites.

I do not sell my art, poetry, prose, or website design skills. My sites are just for show, but I do allow people to use much of my work for free, as long as they agree to abide by my terms of use. Unfortunately, I have no way of enforcing my terms of use. Like every website online today has to deal with, there are people who are going to take webpage content without asking, or agreeing to anything. However, this is only one of several reasons I do not bother trying to sell my work online anymore.

The biggest problem for me, and other small budget artists like me, is that most people want their web content for free. There are many ads supported sites that give away art, and other online content, for free. There is little chance, as I found out years ago, that anyone is going to buy anything from me if they can get similar stuff free somewhere else, or just take what they want and leave.

I detest ads and commercialism though. I do not have a business mind, and I would rather not even try to have one. I want to make art, write my prose and poetry, and design my own web pages, not snuggle up to those whose only interests in life is making more money.

I care little about having, or getting, a lot of money. All I want is enough cash to live by, and be able to get the hardware and software that I need for my work, and be able to pay for my web domains and hosting service. Although my basic life needs are met, getting the hardware, software, and paying for my web sites is always a challenge on my tight budget.

If you like my work, and you would like to help support what I do, please donate. I have set no donation amount; I leave that completely up to you.

Thank you, for whatever amount you give.
