Please Support This Blog

Why ask for funding for a blog? Well if you ask most bloggers, they will tell you they do it for fun and hope that they make money, and that is the case here. For most bloggers the Google ads and affiliate links, result in only a small trickle into their overall income stream. Unless you have a really popular blog with thousands of visitors each day, it is hard to make it pay for the time invested and hosting costs. To get to a point where the blog supports its self and starts to make a few bucks takes a lot of work and time writing articles, and that is why I am ask for your support.

  1. I became a life member back in 11/99, so in other words throw the card away and buy howto books when I need them

  2. I saw a video of a new ax and looked it up and saw what happened to you and I thank you for saving me a lot of hassle. Thanks
