Holidays: Remembering to Heart Your Favorite Bloggers

December likely is the month that bloggers balance the ledger sheet and reassess their time commitment to blogging because of the financial drain. How many hours were spent blogging, how much money did it cost in lost income from their day job and how much did the blog earn from donations? When they do, the blogosphere runs the risk of losing them. They may be news junkies, policy wonks or activists, but they live in the same capitalist world that you do.

So, as you're putting a little something in the pocket of your doorman, housekeeper, hairstylist, secretary, whomever.....think about the bloggers whose sites you read day after day either for enjoyment or enrichment, and please make a note to add them to your gift list. If ever there was a month to do it, this is it.

If you would like to contribute to TalkLeft, I certainly would appreciate it, and you can do so via credit card or paypal. [Links below]

    to paypal, AMX telephoned me to say someone has been charging on my new card, up in Canada.  They just replaced it last month from someone charging on my last AMX card, up in Canada.  At least this time she said she would send a list of all the accounts that I have auto deduct arrangements with.  Then I found out something was wrong with my paypal account that didn't have AMX linked to it.  So now I'm down to a debit card for the holidays.  You may have to wait until next year to get any fishcamp bucks, but they will be on the way.  Happy Holidays.

    on the last day of 2014 september. It was strange since I pretty much watched it happen. My "computer guy" fixed the hack on my computer remotely while I watched him work ( he usually never calls me back but he did that night within 5 minutes of me emailing him from another computer and worked on my computer for the next 1 &1/2 hours - in the late evening)(love that guy). He is such a genius at computers and watching what he was doing was fascinating, and tho I tried to follow what he was doing on my computer - remotely - I just had to watch pretty much in awe. Then it took an hour (45 minutes of that on hold) to cancel my credit card. Then for the next 10 days I lived without a credit card. I had to find actual coins to pay for meter parking and I thought of Kdog often and enviously.

    Anyhoo, J, I put in just two nice glasses of wine $$ into your bucket. Wish I was just not so broke just now or it would be more.
