I’ve never written Dorothy Surrenders to make money. This should be abundantly clear. It’s one of those genuine labor-of-love deals where I write my blog because it seems impossible not to. And because I a lot of Big Lesbian Feelings about things. Also I like women, a lot. Over my six years of writing, I’ve connected with an incredible community – a community that is smart and funny and compassionate and simply amazing. So I’ve also made a point to steadfastly refuse to put advertising on my site. I believe it’s important to keep a few ad-free spaces on the internet where people can be creative without secretly trying to sell you vacation timeshare rentals. Now, that’s all fine and good. But it certainly doesn’t pay the bills.
So in lieu of banner ads for lube that will make your tender bits tingle, I’m holding this little fundraising campaign. It’s modest, though necessary. Blogging is a simple endeavor, but you still need certain essentials. In my case, I am in dire need of a little technical upgrading. My laptop is well over three years old and has developed a severe limp. And I’d also like to pick up various accessories and software to be able to improve the quality of my daily offerings. Yes, ladies and discerning gentleman, I’m trying to deliver the biggest, best and most beautiful Tank Top Tuesdays to you that I can.
Right, so this is the part where I shuffle up to you, hand extended, and ask for some change. Thank you for coming to my site, thank you for wanting to help. Anything is appreciated. And thanks, of course, for reading.
