Recently I have been posting a lot more on this site. I think it’s mainly due to creating a daily writing habit, but I also feel a sense of purpose when it comes to my blog that I haven’t felt in quite a while.
I seek to create content that challenges others to evaluate their lives and live a more intentional story. Whether that involves taking your faith more seriously or living a simpler lifestyle I hope I add value with the content I write.
Chad Whitacre, a programmer and publisher I respect, created a wonderful way to give value to people who add value to your life. It is called gittip and I for one think it will eventually change how we transfer value on the web. We get so much free content on the web that sometimes we forget that there is actually effort and hard work going into it.
The idea is that people give small amounts, weekly-because bills are recurring , to people who add value to their lives. Whether that is writing a piece of code or posting creative content daily on their blog, you can reward them for the hard work they are doing.
I love the philosophy behind gittip and that is why I have added a little box on the top left hand corner of my site.
If you click it and decide to send some value my way, you have quite a few choices. You can even give just $.25 cents a week if you want. If you get any value from my site I just ask that you send some value my way.
My eventual goal is to receive $100 a week in gittips. With this money I can support my writing by creating high quality content and be able to afford graphic designers, editors, and the like to put out ebooks that are worthy of that value.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post and hopefully you understand why I’m asking for money. Money isn’t evil, it’s all about what you do with it.
