Please consider contributing the price of a cup of tea or coffee towards the running costs of this website.
Running a website entails numerous large and small costs that really add up.
And of course, writing articles and maintaining the website is immensely time-consuming.
Writing is not only a hobby for me, it is my main full-time occupation. I maintain the website entirely at my own expense. Income from Amazon referrals and advertising only makes a trivial contribution.
I get a tremendous amount of enjoyment and satisfaction from producing this website. It is a constant surprise and delight to me when people visit it, especially when they tell me they have enjoyed reading the articles.
So I will maintain it whether anyone contributes financially or not.
However, if you have enjoyed anything here, or found anything that has been valuable to you, please think about making a small contribution to the cost of running it.
Just the price of a tea or coffee will be a great help.
If you prefer not to: thank you all the same, simply for being here. I am truly amazed and grateful that you have chosen to spend some of your precious time reading my notes.
If you would like to help in a non-financial way, please share links to your favourite posts on social media. I do not have a budget for advertising, so all my traffic comes from online searches and social referrals.
These are my Notes to Self: short posts on things that happen to interest me. I enjoy writing and I enjoy making websites. If you find some of these Notes interesting, I shall be pleased, especially if you share them with your friends.
Some posts contain affiliate links, marked with an *asterisk. I get a small commission when you buy something, which will help with the costs of maintaining this site. I won’t recommend anything that I have not used myself and found to be good.
My background: I read Classics at University and then spent 7 years in the Navy and 12 years starting and running a tea company.
My interests: business, politics, people, tea, and trivial details of the world around me.
I live in Southsea, near the Common and the sea, and I spend my time on small interesting projects. If you have a project or a problem that you think I can help you with, please contact me by email: [email protected]
