Good Morning Folks!

I’m working on some changes here on the ol’ blog.
Over the holidays, we had some very generous folks buy us coffees.
Thank you all again!
Every single gift of coffee is money put into Farm infrastructure to grow more food.
So we very much appreciate gifts that help that happen!

However, Buy Me A Coffee has separated from PayPal.
Not by choice.
PayPal did an “effective immediately” severing of services.
Which left some of us scrambling for a back up financial service to withdraw our coffee money.
What I ended up with was Payoneer…and damn the fees!
Between what Buy Me A Coffee takes, then what Payoneer takes…we lose almost 15% to fees!
That’s nuts.
Y’all aren’t buying us coffees to pay fees for getting coffee money.

So, we’ve switched to Ko-Fi.
They say there are no fees.
We’ll see.
Here’s that link:
https://ko-fi.com/midnightcalicofarm

And there’s always the paypal on the sidebar.
Way, way, way down the sidebar.
😂😂😂
Note that D5Karl will stay locked up in Sendai, Japan ’til I win the lottery.
In other words, coffees, ko-fis, paypal tips are *not* going towards a new camera…D5Karl is my pet name for the Nikon D5 that one day, when I’m older and much much greyer, I will own.
After we win the lottery. 😂😂😂

Anyways…back to my point of things changing here…
The background theme of the blog is retired.
Which mean that editing things like the widgets to update the links and stuff isn’t possible.
WordPress just isn’t letting that happen.
So, I have to go find a new theme.
One I don’t hate.
One that lets me have widgets on the sidebar.
Because let’s make this as easy as possible for anyone who decides they want to support us.
I want it to be easy for you all.
I appreciate you all.

So if you pop in and things look different, that’s why.
I’m working on things.
And trying not to tear my hair out at the same time.

    I tried the new donation, but it didn’t work for me. I’m guessing I did something wrong.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend my friend. ♥

    We used Ko-Fi to raise funds when Ginger needed to get his leg amputated. It was connected to PayPal, so while Ko-Fi didn’t take a cut, PayPal did.

    How did you get around that? I should check the settings on my Ko-Fi account and see what’s changed!

      I can’t get around paypal taking a cut, unfortunately.
      But with Buy Me a Coffee, *they* take a cut, and so does Payoneer. So it’s a double dip on the fees.
      I’m not sure about Stripe, but the people I’ve talked to about it haven’t been happy with working with them. Could just be their experiences tho…

        Double dipping, indeed!!

        I’d never really heard of Stripe until I set up my Ko-Fi account. It’s an Apple thing, and I know two people who use Apple products, and neither uses them to buy things.

        Have you considered Patreon? My daughter uses it for her art business. She doesn’t promote herself a lot, but still manages to have a small monthly income from Patreon supporters. Enough that she can do things like upgrade her software, allowing her to do more with her animations; stuff like that. With all you’ve got going on, it might be worth a look.
