I’ve seen some bloggers using the Buy Me a Beer plugin. I was tempted to give it a try but I wasn’t sure if it will work for me. I guess it works best for blogs with good content and high number of visitors (which I don’t have).
I stumbled upon JohnCow’s post on how he has over 5,000 unique visitors a day after 14 days but has only 3 people donated through the plugin (albeit he hacked it to donate milk instead of beer, I think it should be the same plugin).
So the questions are:
- Does Buy Me A Beer plugin works?
- Will it work for my blog?
- Have you tried it and is it worth the try?
- Should I give it a try?
For those not familiar with Buy Me A Beer plugin, it is a plugin that enables the blogger to request for donations through PayPal from their readers. It’s also an easy way for the readers to say “Thank You” to the blogger for any information on the blog that has somehow helped them in anyways.
