Sometimes, people ask me how they can help support my website and/or podcasts. I like to give people a choice in how they help by giving several different ways they can donate.
How donations are used
I am not looking for donations to make me rich, to buy steak dinners, or so I can quit my regular job. They just help with the costs of the time and money it takes to produce and maintain my website and podcast.
I use them to do any of the following:
- Pay for and upgrade hosting
- Pay for and upgrade equipment used to produce quality audio and video
- Donate to health-based and IT-based projects
Ways to Support Idiologic and/or The Idiologic Podcast (TIP)
Buy me a coffee (or KFC)
Buy Me a Coffee is a website that takes small donations for people and, if the owner of the page chooses to, they can get them coffee. They don’t have to though. If you use this option and you ONLY want me to get coffee with it (or KFC–please say KFC), leave it in the message. 😉
I’ve set the cost per coffee at $3. (That’s US dollars… if that poses a problem for you, please see the section about PayPal.)
Host your website with Dreamhost
I have used Dreamhost to host websites since 1998 so they must be good if I am still with them, right? Absolutely. I haven’t had any major problems with them since then (and the very few minor problems were usually caused by me).
If you’d like your own webspace with a free domain, use one of the links below to sign up. I don’t want to over-complicate things, but you can only save up to $30 if you decide to pay your bill monthly, however, if you pay annually, you can save up to $50.)
- Look at all the packages that are available
- Save $25 on the unlimited shared hosting package
- Save $50 on the unlimited shared hosting package
If you get hosting with Dreamhost with one of the above links, let me know. Send me your domain name and email address, and I’ll send you something from wherever I am at the moment (Australia, usually).
Download, Install, and Use the Brave Browser
You can download, install, and use the Brave browser to help me out. While you browse and visit my website, you have the opportunity to fund a wallet to contribute a percentage to Brave-verified websites. Idiologic.com is a Brave-verified website and any percentage you’d like to give to us is very appreciated!
Brave has many nice features including:
- Faster browsing on desktop and mobile
- Blocks ads and trackers
- Upgrades the connection to HTTPS when possible
- Syncing bookmarks and preferred settings
- Support your favourite sites with Brave’s built-in crypto-token, the Basic Attention Token
- Works very nicely with Bitwarden (and others)
Brave is my second most-used browser across all the operating systems I use.
You can also donate through PayPal in any amount. You don’t have to use a PayPal account to do this and they give you quite a lot of payment options.
If you send me something, let me know. Include the email address you used as well as the amount you sent, and I’ll send you a little something from wherever I might be at the moment. I’ll even give you a thank you message on my next recorded podcast episode.
You will notice that the link has a Texas city on it. That’s because the link is for my USA PayPal account (the one I use most often). If that’s a problem, contact me and I’ll give you a link to my Australian account.

Donate to Someone Else
It’s good to help others. If you’re not up to donating to me, please donate to your favourite charity instead.
I care a lot about health research. Parkinson’s disease, mental health, kidney health, and such are great causes to support. I do when I can.
After You Do Any of These Things…
Send me a message and I will give you credit in a web post, podcast episode, send you something Australian (if you want), give you early access to things I’m working on, or something else!
