Posts for Donations? March 12, 2024 2:03 PM   Subscribe

Is anybody out there up for the old "you donate money to Metafilter, I'll make a post for you" thing? I have a topic I'd really like to see posted, but I don't have the time to do it myself. I'd donate $25 to our Bean Plate Overlords if someone would do this for me. (I feel like someone was doing this project in the past but I don't remember who.)

I am definitely open to this being deleted if it seems inappropriate.

I'm not doing anything with my life. If you want me to do a post for you, MeMail me and I'll do a short one for $25 and a longer one for $50.

Why would I give you $25 when I can get one for $20 in town

Here is the "Posts for Donations" fundraising project you were thinking of.

I mean, I don't know if others would be welcome to do posts for donations, but I could probably be talked into it more regularly. With the new posting twice in 24 hours thing going on, and me literally not doing anything with my life, I'd be open to doing it more. Maybe others would do it too I know there are a lot of people who are fearful of posting but who want posts to be made.

I do promise to spell the names of people correctly in my future donation-based posts. I'm so embarrassed that I spelled it wrong! Thanks mods for fixing it!

You are literally doing *something* with your life, hippybear, because I see the evidence every time I visit the blue. I mean I hope you end up doing more of what you want to be doing with your life, but I am super grateful for your continuing and amazing number of posts apart from donations. I really appreciate it.Thanks!
