Flattr me

Hi friends,

Have you heard of Flattr? It's this way of making small contributions to people who produce content you like. I listen to a lot of podcasts and read a few blogs, and even though we all do this because we love producing the content, it would be nice to have a bit of income from it. Podcasts sometimes help defray their production costs by sponsors or Donate buttons on their websites, blogs have the option of having advertising on their pages. I'm tossing around the idea of doing this also as I'm about to ramp up my blogging schedule (I'm not working, see, so why not bust my ass to create content?). I first heard about Flattr a few months ago and have been thinking about it for a while. Check it out. If you like my content and have a few cents to spare, why not join Flattr and help me out a bit?

Thanks!

  1. Hi, welcome to Flattr :) Hope it takes off among your readers. We’ve seen that it helps when you do regular updates on what you’ve made, perhaps share the sites that you Flattr yourself (also great way to recommend content). You might want to follow our blog (http://blog.flattr.net) for some ideas and inspiration, we’re trying to do regular interviews with both people who mainly give and those who make decent monthly sums.

  2. Hi there!
    Glad to see you're enjoying Flattr thus far, though it does seem that your things are submitted without titles, so maybe you should take a look at the code you've implemented for your buttons.

    And is the choice to have the things hidden from listings on Flattr.com conscious?
