OK, here's the straight scoop. I don't charge any money
- Users to access the content on any of my websites.
- For webmasters to have a link on this website, even though these links
have generated them thousands of free referrals.
I never have, and probably never will. I do this because
I thoroughly enjoy it. It's my own personal contribution
to astronomy on the Internet, and I feel that it's helping
to promote the science and hobby of astronomy.
I don't make a profit on this (or any site) I currently
run, even WITH the banner advertising. In fact, I am
typically in the 'hole' by semi-large amounts, but I
do it for the love of the hobby and experience. I have
a good, and cheap, web
host and I do the design myself, so the layout of
money is relatively small per month, but it adds up
especially in time.
That having all been said, if you find this site useful,
and have the means to do so, I gratefully accept donations.
FYI: Your donations are not tax deductible. I'm not
a non-profit, just a "no profit" :o). Your
donations can be of ANY amount. There are two ways to
or through the Amazon.com
Please feel free to use either one and your support
is INCREDIBLY appreciated!
