I am a Kottke.org Micropatron

I just contributed to a pledge drive.

See, a couple of weeks ago, Jason Kottke announced his decision to blog full-time. To that, I say Right On. Don’t let The Man get you down.

Or, to be a little more grown-up about it: I really respect his decision, and I’m willing to put my money where my mouse is. I wish that everyone could quit their tedious paying-the-bills crap job and make a living doing what they love—or what they feel is important. It’s not feasible or viable for everyone, though; so, when someone makes that entrepreneurial leap into an untested enterprise (but one that makes sense), I’m all for it.

And, hell, if you donate 30 bucks, you have a chance of winning a prize. 🙂

But then I got to thinking… I’ve read Dooce for much longer than I’ve read kottke.org. And she asked for donations a while back, too, although she didn’t offer prizes or anything. So, I went and donated 30 bucks to her, too.

My blog karma is now clear. I feel better about myself.
