Post version of I’ll do it myself Tucker Fund

NOTE: In order to make it clearer on how to give me a hand I am moving the text of the “I’ll do it Myself Tucker Fund” to this post and will simply link to the existing giving page. I am dating it the date of the initial post so it will fit into the sequence.

As you might have noticed I have been out of work for a while. I’ve been teasing Tucker Carlson (he of the million dollar startup) that he could have me full time; 40 hours for $800 a week (which is what I was making before I was laid off, not counting holiday pay or overtime) Robert Stacy McCain seems to think that I should consider doing the whole Tip Jar thing. He might be right, readership has increased so it appears more than a few people think this blog is a worthwhile endeavor.

So in that spirit we are going to try something. After all if Charles Johnson can support himself on line I might as well see what people think of me.

I’m assuming that most of my hits come from people coming back on a daily basis (or maybe more than a daily basis to check out the place.) I’m also assuming that 9 out of 10 people who come are totally disinterested in giving me any of their money, so I’m speaking to that 1 in 10.

If that 10% of my readers were willing to pony up $4 a week, (that’s less than a value meal at McDonalds) subtracting PayPal fees I would be able to totally replace my pay and blog full time for a living (not to mention totally shock my wife and kids).

I have absolutely no idea if anyone is actually interested but I figure it can’t hurt to try.

So if you feel this blog is worth it and are so inclined to do so feel free to go to my giving page and kick in what you can.

To any and all that do: thank you very much! I’m not one for fancy themes etc, but I will endeavor to make the content of this blog worthy of your support.
