I've just been going over my Amazon and Cafe Press orders and I have to say that I'm impressed by the orders generated so far. Just as a reminder, you can use the links to redeem gift certificates as well as place post-Christmas orders. Also, if anyone wants, please send me shots of you wearing my t-shirts, I'll hide your face, of course, if I post them.

For the curious, I'll probably set up a tip jar or begging cup when I migrate to the new site at the begining of the year, and yes, there will be a new site with a new domain, which, through a bizarre series of circumstance, has cost very little, so I don't need money for that. Instead of asking for bulk contributions, I'll probably ask for voluntary subscriptions, kind of like the museum. In exchange for money, I'll probably do something like send out a daily newsletter with all the day's columns or allow access to a private chat or forum. It won't affect the main blog, which will be ad supported, but it's a way of not just begging for money, which I dislike.

This way, you'll be able to send either an electronic payment or a check, whichever makes you more comfortable.

No, I won't be going to New Hampshire in winter, but be assured, your money will be used well. Super Bowl parties cost money:) Seriously, the more income the site generates, the more time I can devote to blogging and maybe one day, doing honest to god research. Unlike Andy Sullivan, I won't be buying sports cars with the money from this site. I'll spend some on ads and upkeep, some to pay for a professional redesign in the works, and some on the hardware which keeps the site up. And the occasional dinner date.:)

One proviso, at some point in the next year, I'll probably ask for contributions to a charity. Other than that, I will not ask for contibutions to any political campaign. If you're here, you can give the money to who you see fit without my prompting.
