In April 2020 I requested funding for this blog for the first time, at a time when my funding was looking pretty uncertain as a consequence of the onset of the coronavirus crisis. I am genuinely grateful to all who responded to my appeal for funds: it made a big difference.

The easiest way to donate is via Ko-fi: there is a link on the right-hand side of this page and at the bottom of every recent blog post.

However, if you do not want to use Ko-fi for any reason (and we appreciate that there are grounds for not doing so) then please email me at and I will provide bank details so that a direct payment can be made instead. That also saves charges.

The funding you provide will primarily be used to pay for IT, web costs, technical developments and so on. If there is an excess on top of that, it will contribute to my income for writing this.

Thanks for your support. I do appreciate it.
