Thank you to my awesome webmaster, Lisa Twining Taylor of Dancing Goat Web Design, for appending a "$3 hot chocolate" button.
Every click of the button at the side of each blog post will help bolster my anemic post-retirement income and offer further encouragement to me to keep writing these blogs for fellow animal lovers.
It also gives me a place to point the readers of my books to if they've already bought all of my titles and want to continue to support my writing career so I can add new titles to the list...
I hope you'll contribute once a month (more often if you can, less often if you can't; don't worry about it a bit if you're as cash-strapped as I am!).
If you don't want Paypal to have your credit card information, you can write me a check or send cash direct to me. Let me know if that's how you'd prefer to interact (my email address is krisATwordwhispererDOTnet) and I'll send you my snail mail address.
I made my living as a professional freelance copy and content writer for more than ten years, so I'm accustomed to being paid for writing. That's why I can document that I'm worth $3/month to anyone who has enjoyed/is enjoying the fruits of my labors here at Kris and Kritters and YellowBalloonPublications.com.
So here's your chance to buy me a hot chocolate. But here's the all-important disclaimer: I'm far more apt to buy my goats carrots or other treats with your $3 than I am to buy hot chocolate with it. That's just the way I roll. My critters needs (and many of their wants) come first; I make do with what's left over!
Recent Example: I just had a big trampoline donated for my goats to cavort on (and rest under, as it turns out!) but I had to buy the pads to make it safe for them to play on. The pads cost $60!
So yes, your contribution is just as likely to go to my goats' benefit--or my cats', or my chickens'--as it is to go to me.
But unless it comes in, it can't go out because my disposable income is so minuscule as to be non-existent some months...
So to say I appreciate you is a huge understatement!
Thank you for whatever you can contribute to "our" maintenance and upkeep... (Purrs, bleats and cackles mirror my thanks in their native tongues!)
