While I consider myself a philosopher and writer, first and foremost, it is not how I earn my daily bread. As such, the effort and financial costs involved in running this site are freely and willingly donated by me as a labour of love.
Reward comes from the not infrequent critical feedback and words of praise. All of which acts as grist for the windmills of my mind and a spur to further output.
If I may ask one thing, it is that you reach out and let me know what you think about the content.
That said — there are a range of costs for servers, software, and research, for which donations are gratefully accepted and faithfully applied to the ongoing maintenance expenses.
