Kinda busy at the mo, so I'll be responding to recent outstanding comments sometime later- Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe so Etime during the weekend. There'll be another journal soon, a new meme, also sometime between now and then.
Anyhoo, here are my donation/"tip" goals:
1: Camera conversion project: $0/$300 Purpose: To convert my Nikon D3100 to full-spectrum operation, so I could do infrared (like my recent Sundial Bridge birthday pics) and ultraviolet, all without having to do long exposures, fighting the internal UV/IR-blocking filter, plus still be able to do normal-light photos & videos as well.
2: Commissions: $0/$500 Purpose: To offer my writing skills, help me get back to writing again, and have some spending money. This is actually open-ended, and once it hits the goal, it'll be reset to $0 and start over.
3: General donations/"tips": $0/$500 Purpose: "How'm I doing?" :) This would help me get by, pay down some of my bills, and not have to worry about falling behind. I live on SSI Disability alone, at $630/mo., with bills & rent. Like the commission goal above, once the goal is met, it'll be reset to $0 and start over again.
Do I expect any? No. Would be nice, and very helpful, though.
I have both PayPal and AlertPay donation options, above, but I don't know if AlertPay works (never used it), or PayPal from here- The last donation I ever got was in 2010, to help get two leptictidium pics from xianjaguar... If you want to donate directly via PayPal, my PayPal address is amymousie[at]yahoo[dot]com. I can take domestic checks & money orders, but you'll have to PM me for my address. I prefer PayPal, because it's safer and faster, though.
This'll be periodically updated, depending on if I get anything at all.
