Laptop Fundraiser Appeal

If you haven’t noticed, I’m starting an online fundraising appeal to help me buy a laptop so I can blog anywhere, anytime, without notice.

All I have right now is a big desktop computer, and it’s too difficult to lug around from the coffeeshop to the library to the train to the living room, etc.

Whereas, a laptop computer? It’s designed to be portable. That’s the whole point. You can throw it in a bag and hop on a horse and then, next thing you know, you’re blogging from McGillicutty’s Gulch, or wherever.

Don’t you want me to blog from McGillicutty’s Gulch?

YES. Yes, you do. Because what if I’m panning for gold and then I find a big fat nugget? Wouldn’t you prefer if I could immediately whip out my laptop and blog about it, rather than waiting until I gallup all the way home and then hitch my horse and then take a shower and then dry my hair and then turn on my desktop and then wait for it to warm up, then crash, then warm up, then crash, etc. etc. and then by the time I’m ready to blog about “Hey guys, I found some gold nuggets in the gulch today,” them dirty ol’ Coolidge Boys have taken over my claim and now I’m sitting in front of my desktop computer with nothing to blog about like a punk.

Are you starting to see what I’m getting at?

Maybe next week I’ll make a bunch of different levels of donor premiums like NPR does, in case any high-rollin’ readers want to make a big donation to my laptop fund. What would be a good premium? I’ll think about it and get back to you.

In the meantime, please consider donating to my laptop fund!
