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.

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.

Everyday can be #Flattrday :-)

Hi Everyone,

You may have noticed we have been adding Flattr links all over the place recently, some of you I am sure will already know what this is all about, some of you may have clicked them to find out.  For the rest of you I thought it might be worth a quick post to explain why we have been doing it.

Right, where do I start, well Flattr is a way that you, our readers, followers and users can help support sites and projects like ours.  Give us a little reward if we produce content that you like.  I’m going to be cheeky here and ‘borrow’ some of the explanation directly from the Flattr page, where you can see the full text (hope they don’t mind)

Support great web content – There’s a brave new world filled with entertainment, news and tools made by everyone, and not just the big guys. This new world deserves your support.

How does it work? – Whenever you see a Flattr button on a blog or website that you like, click it.  We count up all of your clicks at the end of each month and distribute your monthly spend between everything you’ve clicked on. Simple, right? Of course, you’re also welcome to add a Flattr button to your site and get other people’s support too.

What does it offer for Anygoodtoyou.com? Well, as we have no commercial sponsor or company funding us, everything is either paid for by the project founders, donations from well wishing users or advertising, and now from Flattr too.   All of this helps us to make the project more sustainable, not just in the eco/environmental sense but from a financial one too.
