I have tried to make blogging a bigger priority lately, since I realized my content levels had come dangerously close to somnolent in the past few months. This has been an especially tough week, regardless of having five days off - sometimes all the crap piles up until you have a nice long vacation to really thoroughly enjoy the sensation of blind panic. So, since it's been a long time since I threw a fundraiser, I just thought I'd point out that there is a nice, shiny Paypal button on the left hand side of the site for your thrills and edification. Like NPR and PBS, the content of this site is 100% free, but unlike either of those august institutions I don't get any money from the government (besides the student grants and loans which are going to keep me in crippling debt until I'm about ready to start collecting Social Security). So - if you like the site, think about dropping a few dollars into the collection plate. It's not like I'll stop blogging if you don't pay, but it definitely helps with my motivation to know at least a couple people care enough to drop $5 in the Paypal occasionally . . .
(And if you're new to the site and think this is tacky, well, back in the "good old days" I used to do fundraising weeks. Not that that did anything but annoy people.)
