First of all, thank you to my readers, who have made the experience of writing this blog a very fun one. This is my fourth Big Sky season, and sometime soon in the year I will reach my 1300th post. When I first started the site, I had no idea I would still be writing about the Big Sky a few years later, having met many great people and having had many great experiences.
It has also been a ton of work, and having a full-time job, I just do it in my spare time as a hobby. It is not expensive to run the blog, but there is definitely a high level of time investment. While I have made a little money from the site (mostly from a couple opportunities which have come as a result of the site), it has not been very much... I would be surprised if it worked out to even 50 cents per hour.
So, for the first time, I wanted to allow people to contribute and support the site, if they so wish, via a paypal option. If you enjoy the blog and feel like you want to contribute, I would be more than grateful for any support. If you choose not to or are not able to, I completely understand and respect that. Other than this post, I will place a button on the sidebar (linking to this post), and make a brief mention of it in my Big Sky preview (coming either Wednesday or Thursday, I have been frantically working on it the past few days), and then never mention this again. I am not sure if even creating this post is in bad form... if it is, I apologize!
Now, carry on, and thanks again for reading! I sincerely appreciate any feedback, comments, or questions you have at any time, either via twitter or my email.
