Martin and all of you Lumberjocks, how do you become a donor to Lumberjocks???? because I want to sign up.
We’re 20,000 strong. United we stand, disunited we fall. There’s enough of us here to support this web site without advertisers. Also, 20,000 Lumberjocks buy a lot of stuff from advertisers. Advertisers don’t want to make us Lumberjocks mad so maybe they will climb aboard and support it even more when they find out we are united in an effort to help Martin make this the world’s greatest woodworking web site which it may be anyways.
I love this web site and I haven’t contributed one friggin penny to it. It makes me ashamed of myself, quite frankly. I’ve learned more about woodworking and woodworkers from this web site than from any woodworking magazine or book that I own because, for the most part, they lay on my bookshelves collecting dust. Not so with Lumberjocks. I’ve come here everyday since I joined and I have met a lot of nice people on this site. I want to meet a lot more of you. I’ve made some friends on here. What is a friend worth?
I challenge everyone of you. Let’s all become donors if we can afford it even if it’s in a small way.
I pay money to some web sites but I come here far more than I go to the others. I like this web site far more than the others that I pay for. It makes no logical sense to me anyways. I like the other wood working web sites that I go to but this is my anchor in the internet woodworking world.
There’s plenty of woodworking talent on here and the sky is the limit to what it could become with the internet technology that is available. I know there are some that can’t afford to contribute financially and that is fine. But some of you can afford it. It should always be a voluntary thing.
Maybe I’m out of line. I was just sitting on my patio thinking as I often do and this popped into my head and I rushed in here to post it.
How do you become a donor?
