I have been running Weekly Fifty since March of 2013 for a single purpose: to help me grow as a photographer. By holding myself accountable for posting a single picture, along with audio commentary, I have seen my photography improve by leaps and bounds with no end in sight. This site has also helped hundreds, perhaps thousands, of other photographers as well and I sincerely appreciate the comments, kind words, and suggestions that people have sent over the years.
This site was never designed to make money, and I have not and will not put ads on here, collect user data, or otherwise monetize this website. It does cost a small amount of money to keep online though, and over the years several people have asked me how they can contribute to server costs out of the kindness of their hearts. As such, if you would like to help me out you can use the button above to send a donation.
These donations are purely optional, and aside from a note of thanks from me anyone who donates will have the exact same experience as any other visitor to the site. There are no tiers here, and no special versions of the site for people who donate. It’s just a simple way for you to help me keep the lights on, so to speak, if you want to. And if you don’t (or can’t) contribute, no worries at all. Everyone is welcome here, and I’m happy to continue keeping the site online on my own for as long as possible.
100% of the money you contribute will be used specifically for the Weekly Fifty website. It won’t go to my pocket and won’t be spent on cameras, editing software, or anything else other than paying for server costs or other fees specifically associated with Weekly Fifty.
Thank you, and thank you for being a part of this site :)
