[ad#Adsense 250×250 White]I read through other blogs whenever I can and quite a few of them have a Buy Me A Beer (or similar) plugin or a standard PayPal donation button. I see this whole concept of buying someone a beer or basically donating a really small amount of money to them as a show of appreciation for the content on their site. The donation will not necessarily go towards buying an author a beer (may very well do so if they drink) but may go towards costs associated to their site such as hosting or advertising etc. if they have any such costs.
I like this whole idea and you could actually make a bit of money doing so. I have been on a few blogs/sites that publish their earnings with some putting down figures in the hundreds via this method. That is really easy money!
I had a PayPal donation button on my blog but liked the Buy Me A Beer plugin better. I am not that tech savvy and I have been looking around for information on how to add this widget to my blog. All I came up with was a WordPress plugin and nothing for Blogger.
I was reading through Money Online with ProfitSense Blogger and found a post on how to setup this plugin for Blogger – Blogger’s Buy me a Beer – PayPal donation. I was excited when I came across it since I no longer have to go around looking on how to setup the plugin on my blog. What I like about it is that it is so quick and easy to set-up. All you need to do is follow the three simple steps outlined on the post. These steps involve an image, your registered PayPal email address and you changing a tiny bit of code and text to suit your requirements and you are good to go. That simple.
Take note that you can always use another image and/or caption. Some bloggers have it down as buy me a coffee or a cocktail and so on with images that they prefer. You will need to have a PayPal account to recieve the donations. If you dont already have one, go on over to PayPal and sign up for a free account.
