At present, it costs £13 a week to keep our blog running with the same great format and images that it presently has. We have plug ins and plans with great graphics providers so that we can provide you with the fastest experience and most impressive visuals, but none of this comes cheap. In order to keep up this performance, our blog is costing us money – quite a bit of money!
As Helen can’t work, money isn’t something that we have much of. Of course she receives her disability benefits, but those are intended to help her afford the costs of living as she doesn’t work, not to pay for her to run a blog. In order to keep our blog going and until we can bring you some merchandise, we need to ask for your help.
For your donation, we will feature your name and blog address on our “With Special Thanks” page for a year. We firmly believe that the world works better when we support one another and so, in return for your kindness, we will advertise your blog for twelve consecutive months on my blog.
Why You Should Consider Supporting Our Blog
1. You Control Your Donation
We have intentionally not set an amount to give you the complete flexibility and control over how much you donate. As people who have donated to charity before, nothing frustrates us more than being asked for more than we have donated, or being asked for more than we are able to donate. After your donation, we will not subject you to emails, begging you for more of your hard-earned money. You decide entirely how much you wish to donate to our blog, if you wish to donate anything at all.
2. You Decide What You Think Our Blog Is Worth
Similar to the above, with no pre-set amount, you have complete control over how much you wish to donate. Do you want to help us keep the blog running but couldn’t care less about the images? Let that reflect in your donation. we do not decide what we think our readers should donate, you do.
3. Generate Exposure For Your Blog
In order to drive traffic to your blog, you need exposure. Social media is great, but social media moves fast and with it, a link to your blog can quickly become snowed under. With your blog name featured on our “With Special Thanks” page, you increase your chance of traffic to your own blog everytime someone visits the page. You do run the risk of a lot less people visiting your blog than if you paid a social media influencer, but for a few pounds once a year, maybe the risk seems worth it. We post on social media most days, so if you prefer to blog (or post) less frequently, one donation could help improve your site traffic. Think of us as as your new personal advertising campaign!
4. Help The Community
Every post that we write is designed to provide you with tips, tricks, thoughts and insights to help you or inspire you in some way. Using our extensive knowledge and experience with mental health, disabilities and BDSM as well as our passion for great food, we want to continue to help you feel encouraged or inspired, but we can’t keep doing it for free. With your support, it helps to relieve the financial pressure on us and keeps our site up and running with the same great quality, for you and for everyone.
