I sometimes get asked by someone how they can support me and my work. These conversations made me realize that many people don’t know how to support me when the best part of it is, its free and doesn’t cost you a thing! Everything you do to support me helps to make it possible for me to keep on making free video tutorials for you.
Don’t use an add-blocker
Maybe the best way you can support me is to watch my video tutorials and visit my blog. You will notice that at the bottom of each blog post there is a small add. I have no control over what add is shown as the add is directly linked to your browsing history. I get paid a small amount by the publisher of those adds to have them shown to you.
Similarly on my YouTube channel there is a short add played at the start of a video and after 5 seconds you can skip the add. Again I have no control over which add is shown to you and again I get paid a small amount by the publisher of that add.
I realize that many people find adds very annoying and therefore have add-blockers installed so that they don’t see them when viewing a video or a blog post. However, this means that I don’t get any revenue from views on my channel or blog by people who have an add-blocker installed. So if you want to support me and my work, don’t use an add-blocker. I hope you can find the energy to watch a 5 second add before viewing my 1 hour video. 🙂
Buy your supplies through my affiliate links
Another great way to support my work is to buy your supplies through the affiliate links on my blog. Again, this doesn’t cost you a thing but it is an extra source of income for me.
How it works is that I post links in my blogposts to shops where you can buy the yarn or other products that I am using. When you then buy anything from that shop, also things that I did not link to from that shop, the shop owner pays me a small commission based on your purchase. It costs you absolutely nothing, but makes a big difference for me.
The main shop I get commission from is Wool Warehouse. I promise that I only link to yarn and other supplies that I actually use or would use. I will never recommend anything to you that I don’t believe in myself!
Make a donation
Watching my videos, visiting my blog or buying your supplies through the links on my blog are all totally free for you. It costs you absolutely nothing.
If however you feel you want to do something extra you can make a small donation to me through PayPal. Obviously this does cost you real money. 🙂 Any amount, no matter how small, I greatly appreciate. Think of it as buying me a cup of thee; lemon thee is my favorite by the way.
One thing I want to say very clearly, I am not writing this post to ask you for money! On the contrary, I am writing this post so that you see how you can support me without spending any money at all.
I want to thank all of you for your kind support over the last two years that we have been together. I hope to keep on inspiring you and helping you to make many more beautiful projects yourself. ❤
