    I really enjoy your blog, but I’m quite puzzled about the “contributions” that you mention. I don’t understand why people give you money….for what??

    Glad you enjoy Farmlet.

    Sometimes, when people appreciate a resource, they endeavor to support it in a way that will help ensure that the resource remains free and open to all.

    Hopefully, you won’t be puzzled after reading those links.

    Hi Maggie,
    Re the contributions to Farmlet: We should mention that Kevin keeps another website as well. It’s a current events/ economics/ opinion website with daily updates that he’s been running for quite a few years now ( Some of the contributions to Farmlet come from people who actually read both the Cryptogon and Farmlet sites, so the resources we’re providing and the relationship we have with some of the readers are possibly a bit more extensive/profound than first meets the eye.
    On the other hand, my cheeky aunty has asked if she could perhaps withdraw some money from Farmlet, as she’d like a bit extra!
