Tax season is nigh and after some calculations and reveiwing this year’s cost, I have decided to add a donation button to the this website.
That is a good thing. It is a good thing because I had no idea this website would be so popular, that people find my corniness funny, and that free buttons are really, really popular. Really. But, I am still here, ready and more than willing to spread the crochet love.
So how much does it cost?
I will only do this annually, so sorry to bug, but here is the break down of cost. Yep, below is the bill…
What I do here, I offer on the daily for free. My biggest cost next to hosting is really postage, but I have not gotten all my receipts back, I am sure it is over $100.00 easy. I have kept the cost this low because I maintain and update the site personally. No smoke and mirrors folks, all Googling and coding.
So why keep doing it? Why keep drawing?
For the love of the hook. Duh. Why are you here?!
Why not get sponsors to advertise on the site?
This is a personal choice. No dis to folks who have ads, I can understand why you do, but for me, I would prefer not to. When you come here, this is for Obey Crochet. Not Yarn Barn (hey, that would be a catchy name) or Suzy Hook Face. It is simply for the joy and love of the hook and I would like to keep it that way. Nothing more. Nothing less. And I would not feel right backing a product that I could be running a llama-cat breeding facility in Antarctica. Wait. That would be awesome.
Why should we the people give you moola?
Have I given you a button? How about covering your postage? Have I given you a tattoo? How about giving $0.50 for the simple joy it brought to your life. How about paying me for a cup of coffee to keep me going at 2 a.m. just because I want to crack up my crochet peeps? Huh?
Down to the nitty gritty! Where is this donation button located?
Glad you asked and thank you in advanced! The donation button is located in the sidebar to the right allllll the waaaaay dooooown at the bottom of the page. Why so low? I did not want to be too in your face. No one likes begging. It’s there if you need it and you shouldn’t have to feel super guilty every time you come to the site to check out the free goods. And it is yellow. We like black and white here. Also if you donate, you get to see this awesome message and get a warm pudding feeling inside. I promise.
Thanks for the minute. Now back to the doodles!
