Blogging has brought amazing improvements to my career and my ability to organize and express my thoughts. It has also taught me far more than I ever wanted to know about WordPress, HTML, php, and CSS. These are all skills that don’t hurt to have. But it takes a huge amount of time to do these things. Simply writing content I estimate takes about 5 hours a week.

I used to host basic google ads on the site, and I may go back to that, but I thought I’d try a donate button first. My aim is mostly just to pay for some of my hosting costs. I don’t expect to make money off of this blog.

I know there are a lot of you out there who read and benefit from this blog because you email me, you connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn, and you introduce yourselves to me at conferences. I love that this blog helps people.

If I have helped you, consider donating a small amount to buy me a beverage. My beverage of choice is Diet Coke, and it also fuels the late evenings I sometimes spend writing blog entries. Cheers, and thank you for reading.
