Cash Into Me
We've slowly but surely been inching back up to full-throttle around here following my brain-draining work project, so given that -- and the fact that 5th-Birthday-Jubilee-May and 111-Post-June were exceptional months in terms of content and readership -- I don't feel too embarrassed about coming to you with hat in hand. Yup, it's that time again, folks -- time to kick off our big Summer Pledge Drive around here.
If you enjoy DXM -- if you make it a part of your day, if it makes you laugh or cry or think or want to beat the crap out of me, whatever -- then please consider throwing a little money toward keeping it running smoothly. There are one or two interesting announcements coming in the next few days that will expand DXM's reach, as I continue my quest for the absolute domination of social media platforms that don't pay me anything. Nothing too earth-shattering, but I'm pretty excited about it -- and you'll all be let in on the details soon enough.
This is normally where I'd say that there are a couple of different ways you can contribute to this site, but actually this time around there's only one way: You can donate to it by clicking the link that's located in the right-hand sidebar of this screen and adding money to the electronic tip jar. While the link to purchase my book, Dead Star Twilight, is still there, you may as well avoid it for a little while because one of my announcements will have to do with a change coming to the availability of DST for the upcoming 10th anniversary of 9/11. Believe me, I've done a lot of thinking lately about how at this very moment ten years ago I was in the darkest throes of my really stupid adventure abusing heroin, and with the anniversary of that event and the subsequent one that admittedly rescued me but which indelibly affected all of us, I wanted to do something to mark the occasion. So avoid the book for now. More to come on that soon.
As always, if you can't afford to donate and all you can do is read and comment, I still appreciate it. This little experiment of mine has been going pretty strong for five years and it continues to be a labor of love for your humble narrator. I can't thank you guys enough for being a part of it.
