Support KBD.news! Buy me a unicorn!
Do you like unicorns? I do. And this month I'm saving up for one (no, not really).
Here are some links to help you:
Don't forget to check the recurring donation box over at PayPal (or choose the monthly plan / membership on Ko-fi and BuyMeaCoffee) if you want to support my work regularly! (After all, I'll have to feed those unicorns. Yeah, it's plural now. I might build an army of unicorns to
rule the world help me with this project.)
Why do I beg for money?
The time and effort it takes to run this blog and maintain all the databases is worth a full-time job.
To be honest, it isn't a rational decision and it's quite hard to explain to my wife and kids why I do this instead of earning some money e.g. with freelance webdev work or simply chilling out with my family and the unicorns.
In addition, I don't want to put ads on kbd.news, nor entirely rely on donations of big vendors. That would inevitably change the blog.
Do you prefer a different platform or payment provider? Feel free to contact me so I can add it.
The coolness of unicorns is undisputed. I've always wanted one and my kids would be extremely happy to have one (or two) around the house too.
Without the helping hand (hoof?) of unicorns, KBD.news remains a one-man-show. And, being not just free but also ad-free, this project's survival is entirely in the hands of generous readers and supporters like you — and now the size of the unicorn workforce too.
In fact, the more I think about unicorns the more essential they seem to run a webzine like kbd.news. Just imagine how much a single unicorn could help with all the researching, editing and coding. And the more of them, the better.
You may say, well, with Covid-19 and the supply chains broken, sourcing a unicorn is pretty hard. But where there's a will there's a way.
Actually, while sniffing for cool retro keyboards, I'm always keeping an eye on my go-to classified ads sites so I'll be the very first who will spot if a unicorn is on offer.
