As mentioned previously, one funding option for this project is to ask the readers of the blog for donations directly. I struggle with this option for many of the same reasons given by Darren Rowse at ProBlogger.net in his post Donation Buttons on Blogs. Darren states that raising funds through donations only really works when the blog have both high readership levels and loyal readers. I don’t meet either of these criteria at the moment, but given the conservation bent of the Brush with Extinction project, I figured that it would not be a bad idea to have the option on the website, just in case. In addition, I would direct any funds that were collected in excess of the website’s expenses to the charities that are closely allied to the project. Now it was just a matter of making it happen.

After doing some research online, I discovered that PayPal had cleverly set up the ability to have donations sent to an email address and they would even compose the html that would create the donate button to put on the website. A couple of clicks later, I had a proper donation button set up and linked to the email address that I created specifically for this purpose: donations@brushwithextinction.com. I will also set up a saving account with ING Direct to deposit any funds that I receive. One other thing to add to the To Do list is to add a financial page to the website to keep track of donations, t-shirt sales and expenses. It will be interesting to see what happens.
