That's why, after 2.5 years doing Grits as a side project, I've decided to ask readers for assistance to help keep this work going (and more specifically, to pay for some short-term car repairs). A couple of thoughtful readers already noticed that I added the capacity to accept Paypal and credit card donations in Grits' sidebar, and I really appreciate their support. Another TYC employee emailed to say she'd prefer to mail a check to a PO box - I don't have one, but I'll get one set up ASAP then let you know the address.
Grits was a writer's experiment for me that has blossomed into a very significant part of my life, and I appreciate the hundreds of people who come by everyday to read, comment, and share the space. If you read Grits regularly, if you learn things here you don't see anywhere else, if you think this work is important, and if you can afford it, please hit the PayPal button in Grits' sidebar to donate any amount (Paypal payment) or donate $8 monthly (Paypal subscribe) to support Grits' work. Thanks a lot for any help you can provide.
N.b.: One of the buttons in this post wasn't working but those in the sidebar are okay - I'm not sure why (I just set this up over the weekend) but please use the PayPal buttons in the sidebar.
UPDATE: By popular demand, today I went and got a new PO Box. Here's the address:
603 W. 13th Street, Ste. 1.A-253
Austin, TX 78701-1477
Make sure mail is addressed and any checks are made payable to my name, Scott Henson, not the blog name. Thanks folks!
