I have been writing Blisschick for over two years now and have never added advertisements to this site besides the occasional Amazon widget displaying books and DVDs that I love. I have never made money off of those.
To write every single week day (and for much of that time, even on the weekends) takes time and commitment. I am happy to give both, because I think this work is important and I love the relationships I have developed because of it.
But my time and energy and words and experiences are also worth something, I think, so I have added a very casual donation button, which you are free to ignore.
