Can I Count On Your Help?

Dear Reader,

I don't ask much of you, but right now I have a request: If you value Dumb Runner, please chip in to help keep it going.

Here's the deal. Reading Dumb Runner is free, but creating it is not. In addition to expenses like web hosting, software fees, and stock photo purchases, I devote at least 30 hours a week of my time to producing, sharing, and maintaining content through DumbRunner.com and The Dumb Digest. These are big, and very real, costs for me.

I don't take ads (or anything else) from any brand or company. I don't do "sponsored posts," or link swaps, or any of that sketchy crap. I write with one audience, and one audience only, in mind: You. In turn, I depend on you for support.

So if you value what I deliver every week—and you appreciate the fact that it's independent and ad-free—please show your appreciation by making a contribution. Below, you'll find three quick, easy ways you can do so. 

Thank you!

Yours Truly,
Mark

4. share the love

Really. If you enjoy Dumb Runner, tell your friends. If you laugh at a Dumb Runner article or poster, or tweet, or Facebook post, don't keep it to yourself—take a moment to share or retweet it. Like one of my books? Say so in an Amazon review. All of this stuff helps so much. And it's free!
