Consider It a Cup Of Coffee With a Friend

When you sit down at your favourite local coffee spot with a friend you haven't seen in a while, you both find you fight over who's going to pay. You see, the warm conversation, and the joy you feel, is far more valuable than the relatively small hit that your wallet takes. 

And so it should be. Spending time with a friend can very seldom be considered a waste of time.

So here's a thought for you. When you visit someone on their blog, share a cup of coffee with them. That's the spirit of the Donate box. Let them know that you enjoyed your time together.

And for bloggers that don't have this set up, set yourself up with PayPal as a Premier customer (which allows for donations). They do a great job of making it quite simple to paste the HTML code into your blog homepage. They even provide a simple way to produce the button and all the necessary code. You can shop on eBay as well with this service.'s nice to say thank you
...shows your warm side

(A note to those who have their own blogs. Feel free to post a link to this page, especially if you think the concept has merit and would like to share it with your readers.  You have to pay for all the batteries in the cordless mouse somehow. By the way, get rechargeable ones, it's easier on our landfills.) 

And here's another thought. You might choose a different name that you would be more comfortable with for "The Coffee Shop." Here's some of my suggestions. Feel free to use the comments to suggest your own.
  • The Collection Plate
  • The Watering Hole
  • The Community Centre
  • Town Hall
  • My Children Thank You
  • My Cat Needs Food
  • The Bus Stop
  • The Candy Store
  • Mad Money
  • School Supplies
  • Thanks for the Coin
  • Mouse Batteries
