Gimme Some Candy
In my continuing efforts to 1) steal good ideas from other people, and 2) amass a thousand tiny streams of tiny revenue to support my tiny cocaine habit, I’ve just rolled out the fabulous microsponsorship thingie known as Gimme Some Candy. I posted a while ago about my envy of Ze Frank who schemed this brilliant scheme to help support The Show, and he was kind enough to hook me up with the people who could give me my own version. And here it is!
You’ll see in the sidebar there is an area marked “Bananas, Monkeys, Robots.” In this area you will see all the bananas, monkeys and robots that people have bought from me (right now, there is only one sad little banana that I bought for myself). You can click the “Buy Your Own” link to post an icon and message of your choice (bananas=$5, monkeys=$10, robots=$25). That area over there will always show the most recent ten.
This is just like a donation, but it’s much more fun because you get to write WHATEVER STUPID MESSAGE YOU WANT and tens of people will see it. What a country!
