Okay, here’s the deal.
I’m stretched pretty thin right now. I have more chances to turn a profit than I did when I first started writing Deity Shmeity and dialing back here to rev up there makes sense and dollars. Sure, I enjoy writing this blog, but there are things I enjoy more. In short, both the financial and leisurely opportunity cost of continuing has become high.
This doesn’t necessarily mean I’m quitting. It could just mean that my motivation is changing--but I need your help to change it. I need a sign that you want me to keep writing. This sign falls somewhere between pinging me with a comment affirmation and paying me for my content. I’m asking you to donate to my favorite charity, Relay for Life.
Relay for Life hosts fundraising events across the country for cancer research. Mostly schools, business and churches participate. It would be awesome for an atheist or skeptic organization to represent as a Relay team, but it’s too late for me to organize such a thing locally. Perhaps there is such a group in your area, in which case you should support them. If not, I’m asking that you donate to my fundraising page.
This isn’t the first step in turning this blog into a business model. I have no plans to ask for personal handouts. Having my readers contribute to cancer research will give me a quantifable justification that this blog does some good. Y’know us atheists, we like quantifiable evidence. My listed goal is a very conservative $200, some of which will be covered by nonreaders of this blog. I’ll just say, the more donated, the more I’ll write in the future. I’ll let you know the results in a future post. Thanks in advance.
