You may have noticed that we placed a Bitcoin donation button on the side of the site, below the main ad (or rather the ad placeholder, if you are using ad blocking plugins).
I added this because more people than ever are blocking ads – even non-intrusive ones. While I agree that certain sites can have annoying ads all over the place, necessitating a browser with ad blocking or script blocking plugins, I don’t think it’s necessary to have it block ads by default. However, I also think that it is up to the reader to decide if they want to block ads or not. I’m not going to call these people “thieves” or anything like that. Rather, it would be great to benefit from the years of hard work I have poured into this site.
That brings me to donations. This is something a lot of sites have done over the years, but I have always resisted. It sort of feels like “begging” when you ask for cash donations. Still, I accept that one may not wish to view ads, yet still enjoy the site and want to show support. So I’ll just leave the Bitcoin button there, for people to use if they wish.
You can donate Bitcoins to the site by using the button on the side of the page. Or if you prefer, you can send it directly to the address 1F5N3oVQacpZPLi68TxT1SczfRJvCcmmbx or use the QR code below:
If you don’t have or want to donate Bitcoin, you can still show support by mentioning our articles on any forums you visit, or Facebook or Twitter.
Either way, thanks for reading HCW!
