Calling all Flattr users

English: This is the Flattr right now

Any Good To You is free for both personal and business use, and we plan to keep it that way, sadly however, it is not free to run.  Currently the entire cost comes from personal donations from its two founders and a small amount from advertising.

This is where our plea to Flattr users comes in…

Flattr donations may be small but lots of them can and do make a difference, and of course the beauty of Flattr is that flattring us doesn’t even cost you any more than you already intended, but can make a big difference to our sustainability.

So if you are an existing Flattr user and are willing to spare a click for us, you can use the Flattr button on any of our blog posts, on our website or have a look at our Flattr profile .  All clicks are very welcome and greatly appreciated.

Flattr this

If you are not a Flattr user you can still help us by sharing this post with your friends, family & colleagues,  you could even consider joining Flattr and making a micro donation to us and the many other content providers you use on a daily basis to show you appreciate the work and effort they put into providing the content you enjoy.

What is Flattr?

For our readers who have not heard of Flattr, it is a form of microdonation.  You can go around the Internet ‘Flattring’ content you like without needing to make specific donations through things like paypal etc. to each individual site.

They can probably explain the whole thing better themselves so here is a small video from them.

NOTE: This post IS NOT sponsored by Flattr, and we are not affiliated with them in anyway other than being a user of their service.  The only income we will get from this post is if kind hearted people Flattr our content.

Note: freecycling is not Freecycle

Freecycling

Ok, maybe that title is a little confusing. Let me expand.

Freecycle is freecycling but freecycling is not Freecycle.

It can be quite frustrating when it seems that the media industry appears to believe that the two are one in the same thing.  Often talking about the freecycling movement but only directing people to Freecycle.  There are dozens of other useful sites around the globe.  I admit that Freecycle may be one of the better know ones, but could that be because that’s all people normally hear about.

OK I know I may be biased about ours (http://www.anygoodtoyou.com) but there are quite a few others and if you search on sites such as AlternativeTo.net and SimilarSiteSearch.com you can find lots of alternatives, likewise if you look up freecycling on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freecycling you can see that Freecycle is only one such service.

Now obviously we are going to shamelessly plug AnyGoodToYou.com (this is after our blog) but to ensure we are not doing the same thing I am highlighting above, here are a  few of the others sites  (please note we are not endorsing or recommending the following sites,  just showing alternatives exist)

So to sum up and refer back to my original point…

Freecycle is a method of freecycing

freecycling is far more than just Freecycle.

 If you have more sites you would like to share with people, feel free to comment here or why not join our freecycling community over on Google+, we have a section dedicated to freecycling sites.
