A Bit Of Fundraising

I have decided to take the plunge back into a bit of fundraising for the Disability Thinking website. In the out-of-pocket sense, it's a pretty low-cost affair, but not no-cost. And, if I take into account secondary costs like my time and the fact that I need to always have a working computer to keep the website going, I'm really subsidizing this whole thing right now out of my pretty limited personal finances.

Instead of going the Patreon route, at least for now I will be selling mugs and t-shirts, and also running a Ko-Fi site, where you can quickly and easily make small, one-time donations.

If I make some noticeable headway with these fundraising avenues, then I might consider getting back into podcasting, or maybe a YouTube vlog. We'll see how it goes! In the meantime, check these out ...

The graphic for these items is a circular word cloud derived from the Disability Thinking Blog, but you don't have to know about the blog to appreciate it. I think it's a nice way to get across the importance of words and ideas in disability culture and activism.

If you want to make a Ko-Fi donation, just click this icon:

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

Note that the Ko-Fi button will be at the top and bottom of the sidebar menu on every page you visit, so it's easy to make a donation whatever you happen to be reading at Disability Thinking.

Aaaand We're Back!

I've been on an extended blogging break since December 2, 2017.

The conventional explanation is that I ran out of things to write about. It's more accurate to say that I had lots of ideas that seemed good for 20 minutes or so, but then quickly became stale. Now I've got several topics to work on that have stayed interesting to me for at least several weeks. Hopefully they will all turn into posts worth writing and reading ... something a little more than the usual themes of disability rights in the late 2010s.

I will start back for real with a Disability Blogger Linkup this Friday, February 9, followed by a regular blog post on February 23, then a Monthly Reading List on the 28th. I'll probably stick with that basic monthly routine for awhile. I am also thinking of adding occasional very short "Disability Thought Of The Day" posts. We'll see about that.

However it pans out, it feels good to be back and thinking again about the Disability Thinking Blog. I have missed it.
