Blogger Book Fair Donations

Hi there! I've had a lot of participants say that they would like to have BBF advertised more. Since I already donate tons of time to BBF, I can not afford to also donate money. That is where the new donation fund comes in. Any money donated to the new fund will be used for advertising first and prizes in BBF giveaways second. These are the ONLY things this money will be used for. I'll come up with some sort of ratio: 80% ads and 20% prizes? I don't know yet. You can suggest a ratio in the comments if you'd like.

The ads will be focused on BBF and not individual authors or books to be fair to everyone. The prizes will likely be Amazon Gift Cards or something like that.

If you would like to donate, please click on the Paypal donation widget in the left panel. You can donate any amount and any amount will help. Thank you!


  1. I really like this idea! The ratio I would think would be something like 60% for ads and 40% for prizes.

    I say that because, as authors, we all have something free to offer. It could be an ebook, a paperback...anything. The prize donation would be better suited as a main a final event for someone based on the books entered in the fair.

    Of course, we'd like a lot more feedback so we can refine ideas :)
