Tip Jar and Wishlist AND Library Thing

AT THE LAST BLOGMOOT a bunch of us were standing around on The Porch discussing this, that, and the other thing, and the subject of tipjars and blogads and that kinda stuff came up, and I whinged at how little income I’d made over my years of blogging. (And much grateful to those of you — and you know who you are — who have contributed over the years.)

It has subsequently occurred to me that one reason I might not have realized as much remuneration as I could have is that for some time I haven’t had the tipjar button up.

Gee! Ya think?

So it’s back. Over on the right side. With brand-new, everything’s-up-to-date-in-Kansas-City code and ever’thinnn.

Not sayin’ er anything, but if you’s to be of so a mind…

It’s there.

Update: All this furious activity prodded me into putting up my Library Thing widget. So it’s over in the right sidebar, a bit farther down. (Actually, on Saturday, you’ll be able to see it if you’ve scrolled down this far.) LibThang is a neat toy for bookworms and you’re sure to find it so if your preferred reading material comes in stacks of sheets bound in covers.

Seems to me it would be the case if you have a preference in reading material.

True enough.

And for the curious, if you click on an individual book cover, it’ll take you to that book’s Amazon page (if it’s on Amazon — I suspect some of the older books might not be, at least not in these editions). And, I being a freshly minted Amazon Associate, will realize a piece of the action if you’re moved to buy. Just something to keep in mind.

Of course, my catalog is a tad limited at the moment by two factors. First, I’m just ramping up — and not very fast, either. Last night I just input a bunch of books whose ISBN’s I made a list of about two months ago. Second, of course, as long as The Great Study Project is in — scorn quotes — “progress,” the bulk of my library will remain in storage, and thus unavailable for proper listing.

As the old Tonight Show slides used to say, More to Come.

For all you know, they might still.

True enough, as I don’t recall watching TNS since Johnny Carson retired. As a matter of fact, I really think of it as The Johnny Carson Show and have to stop and look up (in my tumulus-like mental filing system) the “official” name of the thing. So there you have it.

But I degrease.
