The Reality: Asking for Donations for When Women Inspire

Dear friends,

Thank you for being here. I am grateful for every new subscriber! I am nearing the 10,000 followers mark and this is a huge milestone that I will mark with a contest (details to come in July!). I am delighted by the outpouring of support for the blog.

When Women Inspire Banner

But, sadly, all of this time that is put into the blog is not covering my bills. Outside of blogging, I am a freelance writer. This is my career. I am in my 6th year and love what I do. Recently finding myself short of client work, I am coming to you all with a request to help keep me going here.

I am asking for $1 from anyone here who can spare it. I know many people are in difficult times. I’m just looking for a way to keep growing this blog and hopefully make it into my main income. I love helping people and this blog is a platform that brings me joy. You all mean a lot to me. If you are able to give a dollar, I would appreciate it. I’m going to use that money toward continuing to write here (time spent writing, WordPress renewal, ad costs, etc.). To donate, please click through to the donation page.

I appreciate every one of you.
