Some of you may have noticed that over the weekend a “Donate” button appeared on the right side of the site. Didn’t notice? Perhaps you should stop on over and check it out!
Lest you think that I am going to wonder off if you don’t start paying me, I wanted to clarify. Over the last year or so I have received many comments and emails from readers that use this site indicating that they think that I should have a donate button. That they pay others good money for services such as these and that they would be willing to pay me.
I have also had readers ask if I have ever thought about charging. After all, those restaurants where you do it there charge, and there are other once a month programs out there that charge lots of money for less than what you get here every month. But, that has never been my intention or goal. It is my plan to keep this site free of charge.
I do make a little (and I do mean little) money through advertising or affiliate marketing on the site, don’t get me wrong. And I have always said that I am happy with making anything more than $0 which is what I made in the beginning (which was fine because I never intended to make money on this site).
However, if readers feel they would like to donate or feel that the services are worth their money, I will be happy to oblige. :) After all, if I am actually making money to help support my family, that means that I have more time/energy/desire to keep providing you with new and innovative resources. I might even eventually get to add some of those cool new features I want to add to make it easier for users to find recipes, menus and more.
If you are not able or don’t feel led, PLEASE, do not feel guilty for not hitting the donate button. It really is just there for those that feel led.
I love what I do and it will continue into the future no matter what!
