I recently received a donation from one of you here on WWU. I don't know who because, with the exception of my Moderators),  I only know your User Names. It has happened before and it's always deeply appreciated. Since I honestly need all the help I can get with this ongoing venture, I asked Kirk if he would add a Donation Button, which he did. Please feel free to use it as often as you wish! LOL!

It's strictly up to you, of course. No one will ever have to pay to enter…and no records will be kept regarding who donates and who doesn't. We start year three in May, on Mother's Day. WWU is the joy of my life. Each and every one of you is part of my beloved cyber-family.

My heartfelt thanks to those of you who have contributed in the past and to anyone moved to do so in the future. Sending love…

P.S. I didn't know Kirk was also going to install Google AdSense today. (He's been going to do it for a long time.) I have it on www.MomResponds.com and hope it doesn't detract too much from WWU. We also have it on www.MyFitnessPals.com and it seems OK there. I like that the first ad to came up was for Curves, since I go there almost every day. :-)

Splendid idea, Luise!

Now, the ad is for left handed students, a common topic among us...

Good idea on the donation button!

Great idea!  And the ads haven't bothered me one bit!

Like it!  I was hoping the donation button would get put on this board soon and the ads haven't bothered me at all.  Cool

Say, how does Adsense work?  Is it clicks or actual purchases that help make the money?

It is clicks. Kirk explained it to me in detail but I didn't store it (or really undrstand.)
