Many websites across the net display a donation button, asking people to donate for the website. In most cases it is quite legitimate, understandable and reasonable. When you give free information or free software you make no money, but you spend your time on maintaining the website writing or building and improving software.
A website that displays a donation button usually gives you free information or stuff, requesting nothing in return. It just offers the option of donating, if you found the information or software useful, and only if you wish to donate.
A website costs money to maintain. There are monthly expenses to pay for hosting the website, for the Internet connection, for software required to maintain or improve the website, and there are other fees too. And what about all the time spent on the website, writing, researching and improving?
We all search for free software and free information, and there are many websites that offer free software and information, and that’s great, since not everyone can or is willing to pay for what he or she are seeking, and in this case a donation button might be of some help.
I give a lot of free information at my website, and I like doing so. I know that most websites, not all of them, give just a little information, and then ask you to buy something, which is quite ok. It is so everywhere. You don’t go to the supermarket or the shopping mall and take what you want without paying. If you want something you need to pay for it, and that’s the same with websites.
Returning back the subject of donations, I have no intention of displaying donation buttons at my website or blog. I prefer that people buy my books, instead of donating. This will be a token of appreciation and support. Actually, SuccessConsciousness.com is now my regular and only job. I spend many hours every day writing, adding new features and answering mail. I have just now finished revising my book, Visualize and Achieve”. I am working on a new Forum, which I am going to upload soon, and in which I intend to me more active and participating, and I intend to write many new articles and new books.
I like writing and I enjoy offering information that helps and change people’s lives. I receive every day many email messages from people thanking me for the information and telling me how much it helped them, and that’s really great. This feedback tells me that this work needs to continue.
I hope you like the articles, information and advice offered at this blog and at the website. I am giving all this stuff for free, but in case you feel you want to show your appreciation, I would be glad if you purchase one of my books. That will be a great thank you.
Purchasing one book, any book, will help me continue devoting most of my time to improving the website and adding new free stuff. By purchasing a book you will gain a lot of useful and practical information and advice, more, and at a deeper level than what you find at this website or blog. This will benefit both you and me.
Actually, all of my books offer practical and useful information, keeping the theory the minimum required. You want to be able to use the information and improve your life, not just read some general information.
You don’t need to worry about downloading or opening the books. You will be offered all the help you need, and you are welcome to ask questions or for assistance. If for some reason you need a new download link, now or later, there is no problem, just write and ask for it. You pay just once.
Here is a partial list of the books:
