Flattr Appreciation During May Euro 20.49
In May we had 41 things flattred by 15 unique users. In total we were flattred 81 times last month and received Euro 20.49 in support for our work. We are very happy about this and it seems like it’s mostly a core of about 15 Flattr users that give us continued support. Thanks a lot for that! Here are some income statistics from Flattr over the past months. In February we received an extra 9.50 Euros (after fees) in a direct donation from one anonymous benefactor, many thanks!
Domain = 18.50 Euros (two years)
Server space = 25 Euros (past few months + until end of December)
wpml wordpress plugin = 60.50 Euros
Flattr fee for withdrawing = 1 Euro
== 105 Euros in total costs
Remaining on account = 92.50 Euros
The wpml plugin is to add multiple language and translation support to our wordpress. We plan to start translating our blog to at least French and Spanish (hopefully more later on) to reach a bigger audience. If you speak several languages and would like to help us translate then please get in touch.
Flattr is a microdonation service that allows you to give a small amount of money each month to content you would like to give support. It can be compared to a “facebook super-like” with money attached. Users act like patrons of work or people they want to support and ”many small streams” adds up to something larger.
