this website is new. i’m working it out. you can let me know if things don’t work for you the way you expect them to.
this site started with the intention of getting off facebook. i don’t like how it feels anymore. i don’t trust it and it has made me post less because i don’t like logging on and seeing the horror show and feeling like every click is being used against us. i’d like to make money from my writing and pictures. . . but i don’t want to use advertising to make money: i don’t like looking at it on other sites, nor the click-bait techniques they use, so i don’t want it on my web page: i don’t want to see it or my readers to have to see it. . . . i thought if even half of my facebook/tumblr/etc followers gave me the equivalent of a dollar a month to see my content it would pay for the site and give me enough to live on if i were frugal. . . but i’ve not yet figured out how to make this site do what i want it to do. . . and i quickly discovered the idea of a $1 monthly payment nets me ⅔ of each dollar. . . because of how pay gates process payments. . . so i’m making everything Free right now and leaving it up to donations (links at the bottom of this post) – think of taking me to lunch, or buying my book. . . give what you would like give. i’ve been “creating content” since 1997, it is about time to get some income from it.
i am a traveller. i wandered for 12 years in my youth… (17-29) lived in NYC for a decade… then decided i’d rather be a traveller again. ask me if you want me to come visit… maybe i will. i love staying with people and teaching yoga and qigong and giving massage. helping around the house, or yard, or farm. generally: being useful. i’ve made made most of my money doing massage since 2003, but won’t be able to do that for the foreseeable future… ask me if you’d like to have a private session with me on line, i have lots of stories to tell and things to teach, and i’m a skilled listener . . .
