PTB Tip Jar Now Available
November 14, 2016
Over the past few months, several of you out there asked if there was any way for generous folks to kick a few dollars into a tip jar to help keep Press The Buttons running. I'd always said no because I didn't want to charge you for content or lock any of it away behind a paywall. Ultimately, PTB is my fun hobby job that I pursue in my spare time. For years I ran banner advertisements on PTB to help pay the bills around here, but as the online advertising market turned more and more towards annoyance and malware, I dropped the banners, depriving the site of its key source of income. I figure if the ads are so irritating that even I want to block them on my own site, there's no way I could or would expect any of you out there to deal with them either. People keep asking about the tip jar though, so who am I to keep turning down the idea? I've set up a PTB tip jar through PayPal at https://paypal.me/pressthebuttons where, if you like, you can send me a few dollars to help cover my efforts here. Thank you all so much for your continued support of Press The Buttons through reading, commenting, sharing links, and now the tip jar. I have the best audience on the Internet and it's because of all of you that doing this work is so much fun and fulfilling.
