Volunteer Firemen have a tradition of raising money by asking passing motorists at stoplights to make a donation by holding out their fire boots. Bloggers have a similar tradition of the tip jar, and sometimes a blogger runs into some difficulty, and we pass the tip jar around. View from the Porch is a daily read for me. She has unfortunately run into a medical issue thats starts with “c,” ends with “F*ck!,” and has a bunch of doctors in the middle that cost money. Even if, as Tam puts it, that skin cancer is more like cancer’s farm team, it’s still a horrible thing to go through.
So if you like her work, “hit the friggin tip jar,” as another blogger is fond of saying. Help her get well and not worry about expenses.
