A Very Sweet Reader…

…named Charity Anderson wrote, wondering whether we have a tip jar or any other means of contributing to the site. We don’t, actually, but I think it’s great for people to chip in a little to help defray bloggers’ expenses and maybe even allow them to turn a small (generally very small) profit. We at Power Line are a little different from most bloggers. We’re older, actually. Which has its negative aspects, but on the bright side, we’re living a bit less hand to mouth, even though two of us (Trunk and Deacon) have daughters who are college freshmen this year. Anyway, blogging for us is a pretty harmless habit–much, much cheaper than golf, as we keep reminding our wives. And less time-consuming on weekends. So please do keep looking for those tip jars on other peoples’ sites, but we’re pretty solvent for now.
Having said that, I am intrigued by the idea of Power Line mugs, t-shirts, etc., which a few readers have wondered about. That would have a marketing angle, for one thing, plus it would give us something tangible to show for what is mostly a virtual obsession. Let us know what you think; if there would be some demand for such items–it wouldn’t take much–we’ll see what we can do.
