An Important Message (07/05/2020)
I'm sorry my friends! Unfortunately, the "daily blog" will no longer be "daily" while I am under my current circumstances.
The writing itself will continue, but will probably be somewhat infrequent and more focused in on specific subjects. Whenever I have time, I will post notes on whatever I learn about these topics, that way we can still Learn Together.
Thank you all for your understanding and support! ♥
For those of you who want to know more about the details of the situation, you can read on. Otherwise, please feel free to skip all of this...
I have spent most of my life studying a wide variety of topics. I am very passionate about learning, and would like nothing more than to spend the entirety of my day researching and sharing information that could be of benefit to everyone. However, unless people are willing to pay me a living wage in order to do so, I realistically cannot.
I feel a sense of conflict admitting this, as I have worked hard for a long time on attempting to share helpful information with others without trying to sell them something or soliciting for donations. Even making a simple Ko-Fi page felt like a betrayal of my core values.
I am a firm believer that helpful information should be free for everyone, and further, that we are capable of completely moving beyond the use of money within our society. Hopefully, everything on this website (and our sister website) is a testament to that. I sincerely wish that I could give everything that I have been blessed with away for free without having to think about survival, but my circumstances have been precarious for some time now.
This very message (along with most of the material that has been posted thus far) has been made on a borrowed laptop. The fact that I have food to eat, clothes to wear, a place to stay, and time/material to study, has only been possible throughout my life due to the generosity of a few close friends and family to whom I am most grateful. I always try to help however I can (and get by on as little as possible) to show my appreciation, but to be honest, it is only by the grace of God that it has continued for as long as it has.
I have little money and few possessions, no license or car, no college degree. While I consider myself a hard worker, not much of it has been in the direction of a "traditional" job or schooling. The combination of these things has meant that I have spent a lot of my life focused on trying to serve others without actually pursuing a career or starting some kind of business. Therefore, I now find myself "between a rock and hard place" as it were.
It is not my intention to write a "sob story", just clearly explain the why behind the above message. I hope that you all are well. Much love. ♥
