Flattr Appreciation During July 2014, Euro 5.94
In July 2014 we had 24 things flattred by 7 unique users. In total we were flattred 35 times last month and received Euro 5.94 in support for our work.
July is one of the summer months with low activity. Both from our side and from number of visits we receive. During July we only had 7 people supporting Pirate Times through flattr, not enough for economic viability in the future. Most of the support came from regular flattr subscriptions showing that we need to do more to make the flattr button on our posts more visible. After the summer months we hope to have our site re-designed and then we can look on how to incorporate flattr in a more efficient way. Thanks to the 7 people that flattred us last month, it means a lot to us!
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.
