Update on PayPal Experiment

A dear reader nudged me into setting up a PayPal account for donations in February. So far, three donations have totaled $110, including one check sent by mail.

Jim Hopkins has resumed publishing Gannett Blog and is also taking donations. As a former Gannettoid, I find his blog very interesting and I have sent him money in appreciation.

If you are so inclined, you can send donations for Plaintalker via PayPal to bernice.paglia "at" or inquire there for a mailing address.

There is a small controversy in the blogosphere over whether aggregators should get paid for assembling other folks' original content. I tend to come down on the side of originators over aggregators, but both are here to stay, so let all monetize as they wish.

Bernice, it's good to see you are getting such nice support through the PauPal 'experiment'.

Just for clarity's sake, only the PLAINFIELD TODAY blog is being monetized.

It is not 'aggregated', which is the case with the CLIPS blog, whose only purpose is to drive readers to all the blogs and other stories of interest (a concept which has even been taken up by PolitickerNJ with its 'Wake-up Call: Morning News Digest').

Your coverage, as always, is invaluable in helping Plainfielders understand what is going on in the community. Thank you for everything you do.
