This page contains all the currently existing ways to support Math ∩ Programming, and as people suggest new ways. I also want to be as transparent as possible as to where your money goes in terms of merchant fees for the transactions.
If you want to read my shameless request for support, see this blog post.
Here are all the ways you can support this blog, in increasing order of difficulty.
Whitelist your ad blocking software for this domain. As of April 2013, this blog serves ads which fund this blog (as opposed to WordPress, which has been serving ads on my blog since it started anyway). The ads pay per page load, not per click, so simply whitelisting this domain in your adblock software while you read will implicitly generate a small amount of revenue. I have no idea if actually watching an ad results in extra funding. I have promised, if I get enough sustained support on Patreon, to eliminate ads.
Share. Sharing my blog in your social network will lead to higher traffic, and this will indirectly lead to funding for this blog in a variety of ways.
Become a Patron: via Patreon. They take 2% off the top of my monthly donations, capped at $1 per month. The benefits include early access to posts, and if I get enough support I will drop ads from the blog.
- via PayPal. 2.9% + 0.30 USD of each transaction goes to PayPal.
- via Square Cash. Square takes 2.75% per donation.
- In Bitcoin. My payee address is 16V1aMGfm81cLzLuGvc2jqRFaS37EUzjWt. Fees are very small, at roughly $0.02 USD per transaction, depending on the market.
I used to sell merchandise but I don’t anymore. I need better designs and very few people buy the merchandise.
If you have a different preferred way of transferring currency that isn’t mentioned here, please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to accommodate.
Thanks so much for your readership. It honestly keeps this blog going strong, and regardless of your choice to support or not to support, I appreciate every reader who stumbles across this humble blog and enjoys it.
