Donating = Loving


It is a pleasure bringing you writings, media, and other notables by myself and Contributors through FWIW. But the site takes a lot of time to run (curate, write for, illustrate, code, share, etc)— sometimes a hundred plus hours a month— and incurs considerable costs for hosting, security, and web design. 

Donations from readers are immensely helpful (and indeed indispensable) in keeping it running and regularly contributing meaningful pieces. As well as staying clean and Ad Free— which is important to me, as I hope it is for you. Further, it does not feature any ‘affiliate advertising’ (ie, book or other product placements) of any kind.


Of course, donations are also invaluable in facilitating my being able to continue writing full-fledged works— currently completing a long philosophical novel, two shorter novels, among other writings— and eventually sharing these hopefully vital works with you and the world.


If you derive any enjoyment, edification, and joy here— or wish to support the literary arts in the 21st century in general— and have the capacity, please consider giving a donation, however much you can afford. Any sincere and heartfelt donation, however small or large, is a gesture that gladdens my heart with gratitude.


You can donate in two ways. One, become a Supporting Regular, with an automatic Monthly Donation of your preference— from the cost of a cup of tea to a dinner— joining the regular readers who, morally and financially, make the site’s perpetuation possible. Each Supporting Regular will receive a written year-end postcard thanking them for their patronage. Those in the “Glass of Cotes du Rhone” and “Vodka Martini” categories will find their postcards graced with a short poem, snippet of writing, doodle, or other surprise. Those in the “Dinner” category will receive an additional substantive gift, TBD. (Note: You don’t actually need a PayPal account; just use any credit or debit card and click through.)



Or you can make a One-time or Recurring donation in Any Amount of your choice:
