No donations needed, but thank you.

I've had a number of people message me asking about donations and such. To those who've reached out to me about this, Thank you! 

Below are my answers to some questions I've received. If you don't read any further on this post, just know that I don't need donations but that I do plan on continuing to post updates here for the foreseeable future.

Do you make money from this blog?

Do you have a donation link for PayPal, Google Wallet, etc.?
No. Well... yes, I do have a link. But no, I'm not going to post it on this site.

Are you going to add ad banners?
No. I have no plans to add any kind of advertisements to this site. I'm sure it's simpler than I think in my head, but that's not the point of this blog.

Are the URLs referral/affiliate links?
No. I wish. I use Google's service to shorten the PlayStation Store's links for one reason: so the links don't break. I know there are folks who re-share links from here to forums (which I think is great!), and I know that forums often choke when parsing PSN links that have apostrophes and other "special" characters in them. That's all there is to it. Also, I don't think the PSN even has an affiliate program.

How can I show my appreciation if you won't take donations?
I wouldn't mind continuing to simply see appreciative PMs or seeing "thanks" comments on my posts. If you're dead set on contributing monetarily, please consider making a donation to one of the charitable organizations below instead. They'll make far better use of your contributions than I ever could.

If you shop on Amazon, you can bookmark and use my affiliate link ( when visiting the site, and a portion of your purchase will go to one of the charities I support. This will not increase the cost of your Amazon order.

Please consider donating here! Even $1 helps.
