About a month ago, Hawk Wings received its first donation from a reader.
I have since been trying to persuade him to tell me something about how he uses Mail.app and what he likes and dislikes about it so that I could offer a little profile with the news, but he has proved too shy or too busy to give me anything.
This is all I know: Eelco is a Dutch reader who made a kind donation to Hawk Wings and wants me to “Keep up the great work!”. Thanks, Eelco. I really appreciate your generosity and good wishes.
Of course, Eelco doesn’t have to feel all alone. You could make a donation too, using the PayPal button on the site’s front page in the sidebar to the right of screen.
In fact, if you read Hawk Wings a lot and like the blog’s style and content — a casserole of Mail.app, Address Book, iCal and email in general, spiced with pinches of Gmail and Thunderbird and a productivity jus — and your email life has got better because of it, maybe you should donate.
It would encourage me to continue blogging Hawk Wings, especially now that people are throwing pots of money at me to write about other things.
I should mention too that Hawk Wings received a very kind donation from a scotch-drinking, bearded developer from northern climes some time ago, but he is not a reader; he is one of my teachers.
Also, three developers gave me free registrations for apps that I posted about on Hawk Wings. Which was nice. Thanks.hawk wings, donations, reader support, being thankful, paypal, mail.app, apple mail, ical, address book, productivity, gmail
