Honest Editorial:
The Scary Paypal Donate Button

Hi everybody!

Sorry for our lack of presence on this blog!

We've been having a sort of life crisis -- well, really a continuation of our continuing life crisis.

We tried to do The Doll Wardrobe Blog Youtube videos, but we discovered it is really, really difficult to motivate ourselves to do that because of our anxiety. 

Don't ask why -- we are just anxious about everything, including Youtube. Even though Youtube isn't scary, we are still scared of it. We are weird like that.

Clearly writing on this blog has been the most successful avenue for us, emotionally and creatively.

We want to dedicate more time to this blog but we feel so guilty about doing that because it doesn't bring in any income to the household.

We thought Youtube videos might help with that, but again, we can't motivate ourselves to make them. So we are feeling like losers about that.

Today we decided to add a Paypal Donate Button to the blog's right side menu.

We never wanted to ask you guys for money -- we'd rather you spend your extra dough on dolls, and Etsy items, and crafts, and sewing, and your own businesses and enterprises -- but we also don't want to feel guilty about putting our creative energies into this blog.

We want to make the blog more successful. 

We don't want to ignore it like we have been doing out of financial guilt.

So we took the plunge and added the scary Paypal Donate button.

Dun dun dunnnnn!!!!

Yes, we kind of see it as us begging for money.

But the more positive way to view it is that we are asking to be paid for the time we dedicate to the blog. It's weird, since this is a job we gave ourselves, haha. 

"Can you pay me for a job I decided to do on my own?" -- that seems illogical, right?

But then again, other bloggers do get paid to generate content, and they use those Paypal Donate Buttons. And they are still successful. So what are we so scared of, right???

Well.....angst aside....

If you would like to donate to us and support this blog, please see the right side menu. You do not even need to have a Paypal account to donate to us.

We are planning to use the rest of the year to really work on this site and see if it can generate any income for the household.

So feel free to donate today, or wait and see if you are enjoying our new content, and then donate.

Obviously donating to us is not a requirement! 

And we will still be publishing our content whether you donate or not! 

But we'd really appreciate your support. 

It would mean a lot to us. 

Thank you for your time!

Stay tuned for more posts this week!

*Fingers crossed for a brighter future*
