Donations — and Forgive the Ads

W.J. Astore

If Bruce Springsteen can make a commercial for Jeep aired during the Super Bowl, I can start accepting a few dollars for content at Bracing Views. (Donations are voluntary.)

Seriously, I’ve been running Bracing Views for five years, and before that I ran The Contrary Perspective, without ever asking for donations or bothering readers with ads.

But site costs are rising, and I suppose I should be open to earning some money for the site.

So I’ve added a PayPal button for $12.00 donations (a buck a month: what a deal!), but it’s purely voluntary. Many thanks if you choose to donate, but no worries if you don’t. These are tough times for many people.

Also, you may now see some ads when you visit the site.

Again, many thanks to all of you for following the site, and for reading and commenting as well.

P.S. I’m just another sellout like Bruce. 🙂
