If ever I run for office, one of my catch phrases will be, “Of course I’ll take bribes! I gladly accept cash. What I won’t do is anything in exchange.”
(This isn’t strictly legal (except in Puerto Rico). I don’t advise any candidate to adopt this philosophy.)
How can I help support what you do? you ask. Glad you did; it speaks well of you.
Well, the first thing is, share my posts. Link to them on Facebook; tweet them; talk about them. I rarely submit outside a small circle, but if any of these goes viral I’ll be delighted. If you think something I wrote deserves to be in wider circulation, feel free to email the link to an editor. I do a fair amount of self-promotion, but there’s something compelling about sincere praise coming from an ardent fan; the soul of even a New York editor might be touched. (Well, maybe not a New York editor…)
If you want to get in touch with me to donate, I’m glad to accept it. I’m not a charity, but nobody’s paying me to keep this site up either. We accept PayPal at:
TheNotFakeNews@gmail.com — Don’t forget the “The” at the beginning, and don’t bother to send normal emails there unless you’re a very patient person.
If enough people kick in money, I’ll be able to pay to take the site ad-free; with more donations, I’ll be able to write more than one or two days a week. Eventually, we might wean me off my steady diet of ramen noodles, but I’m aiming low for right now.
My Uber code is johns110603ue — Use it. Gets me free rides.
My Planets Nu signup code is 13963. If you ever want to try the game out, sign up using my code.
Side note: There isn’t enough money or interest right now to formally reprint “Collapse”, but if enough people get in touch I’m willing to consider a small private print run on a subscription basis. I’ve recovered the rights and there may even be some new content.
