Please support Under The LobsterScope (your $5.00 makes a real difference!)

And if you do drop $5.00 or more into the kitty, you get Bill’s FIRST PICTURE FONT for free:

BILL’S DINGBATS (worth $29.00).

Just make a donation of $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE.

I need your help, folks. Since 2004 I have been bringing you Under The LobsterScope totally free-of-charge and have avoided advertising or “blog begging” or any of the other methods of scavenging that blog writers are prone to. Unfortunately, this has had to change…just a little… to keep this information for progressives, liberals and others coming.

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 would help (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

As I said, all contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Very First Picture Font, Bill’s Dingbats, that I created 22 years ago (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). This offer will end on August 31st!

I appreciate those of you who have come on board over the last few days and hope more will join in. And for those of you $5 Plus donors who received our last three Free Fonts: Bill’s Universal Symbols, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks, you know what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

July is almost over and Under The LobsterScope is still short of its budget…

So once again I’m asking you for help. If you make a donation of $5.00 or more I’ll send you the  BILL’S DINGBATS  package (PC/Mac and OTF font in one bunch – worth $29.00). immediately.
That’s it… a donation of $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE.

Some of you have chosen to come in EVERY MONTH and have told me it is cheaper than buying a daily newspaper… not only do you get the Under The LobsterScope articles, but you get defined access to a growing number of other sites on our blogroll, news list, and speacialty sections.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board over the last few days and hope more will join in. And for those of you $5 Plus donors who received our last three Free Fonts: Bill’s Universal Symbols, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks, you know what a good deal this is.

Your support is more than appreciated at Under The LobsterScope…

In 2004 I started Under The LobsterScope during the election season. For six years I have presented the best liberal-oriented material I could find and my own comments on politics and the arts (and a few other subjects).

I need your support to keep this blog going… when I started I was employed and well-paid, but, as a result of the Bushified economy, I have been more-or-less unemployed for three years. Spending five or six hours a day on a blog is actually an expensive process – when I’m working here, I’m not out hustling freelance jobs or looking for real employment. So I’m asking if you will donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope. If you do, you get my picture font,Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) , absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE (except, of course, on my UTF Type Foundry site.).

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 helps (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

Remember…All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Universal Symbols (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

This offer is for a very limited time. Come July, Bill’s Universal Symbols comes off the Free list.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board every time I’ve put up a new Free Font and hope more of you will join in. Previous donors have received two Free Fonts, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks. Since several have come back again, it is clear what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Thanks,

Last month was a very good one for donations to Under the LobsterScope…

… and I’d like to keep it up for June, if you will give me your much appreciated support. Back when I was an employed guy, the cost of spending time and money on the blog was very easy for me. As a “semi-retired” (read: unemployed thanks to the current economy) guy, just keeping the space going requires careful budgeting.

So I’m asking you to donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope, and if you do you get Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) for FREE.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE (except, of course, on my UTF Type Foundry site.).

(PS… my sincere thanks to Christine Jackman who made a contribution larger than the minimum and said she didn’t need the font. I could sure use more readers like that.)

Only 2 more weeks to get Bill’s Cast O’ Characters…

…when making a $5.00 or more donation in support of Under The LobsterScope. I’ll be changing fonts in the giveaway next month and The Cast will go back into the $29.95 sales package I regularly let it go out for.

I must say, however, that I am thrilled that most of my donors have come in with $10.00 donations… something I didn’t really expect.

Because of these contributions I can go on bringing you you The Cartoon or Cartoons of the Week, the Quotes of the Day, the Political and Arts News, the Blogrolls to the best sites in America and beyond… I know that much of the traffic here, from all over the world, is to get at this Blog list.  Then there are the Political stories that we pass on from many sources. Often we get the breaking political stories before you see them anywhere else. And our wide open communication channels with readers can’t be beat.

So if you like visiting Under The LobsterScope and you get something out of it, I’m hoping you will make a small contribution, by PayPal or credit/debit card. You’d be amazed at how much $5.00 can do to help me bring more and more to these pages. And it is probably the LOWEST annual subscription fee you will make to any publication… interactive or not.

Remember… for the next 2 weeks only, for a contribution of $5.00 or more you will receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Cast O’ Characters (I send you the True Type versions for both Macs and PCs by email). As you now, I regularly sell this font for $29.95. Sample Below:

If you can’t afford $5.00, remember even $1.00 is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
