Support this Site!

Isn’t it nice to visit an ad-free website with original content to enjoy?

Do you enjoy reading the content on this site? While I enjoy writing it, I could sure use your support.

Every week — since October 2003! — I put hours of my time into writing fresh, new content for this site. This includes text, images, videos, time-lapse movies, and countless links to other quality content on the web.

My flying work — which pays the bills these days, is seasonal. That means I only have a decent income part of the year. The rest of the year, I get odd jobs here and there and live off my savings. And although I’ve been earning a good part of my living as a writer since 1990, I’m now competing with amateurs who are willing to write for free or “exposure” and dealing with ever lower payments for my writing work.

So here I am, asking blog readers for their support. Can you help? I’d appreciate it more than you can possibly imagine.
