Hosting a website costs money. There are ways to make money with them too, but that takes time to build up presence online. The first donate button was added a couple of months ago and has received no attention.
Today I added the Bitcoin donate button. I assumed it would get as much use as the Paypal button. I was wrong.
Was the amount of the donation enough to cover hosting fees? No, but I was still floored to see the donation come in. Thank you!
