Tip Jar • Donate

It’s a long-standing tradition to toss a little money to those who have entertained you in your travels, but instead of a streetcorner to call my own, I have this corner of the information superhighway. Please toss some into my virtual hat using either Paypal, Patreon, or Venmo @Cecilia-Tan.

We’ll even reward you for chipping in! Donors get access to some special files and downloads, and those who are 18 or older get access to bonus material that is for “adults only.”

You will automatically see the progress bar on the tip jar update when you make a contribution via Paypal:
Olimometer 2.52
(Note that’s the total after Paypal fees are taken out. Paypal takes 30 cents per transaction plus about 3 percent. The tracker only counts what lands in the bank account.)

Whenever the Tip Jar hits $100, I’ll post a new bonus of some kind. Now that the serial is complete, these may be epilogues or they may be interludes or flashbacks. We’ll see. I may let whoever contributed the most to that $100 pick what the subject will be!

Not sure how much to give? Here are some things to think about:

  • $10 admission to a typical 2-hour Hollywood movie
  • $7.99 cost of a typical mass market paperback book
  • $2 cost of the daily New York Times
  • Make A One-Time Payment

    Paypal lets you give the amount you want at the spur of the moment. You don’t need a Paypal account–you can use a credit card through the Paypal payment links and buttons. Either use the button below to give one of the amounts listed, or if you’d like to give a custom amount, CLICK HERE or go to the link https://www.paypal.me/daronmoondog:

    Fill in whatever amount you like that is $1 or higher!

    Make Ongoing Payments

    Via Patreon:
    Patreon is a crowdfunding site that allows patrons to set up ongoing micropayments. To sign up to make an automatic micro-payment of two dollars a month, visit my Patreon page: http://www.patreon.com/ceciliatan Now that DGC isn’t actively updating anymore, my patreon is focused on supporting all my writing and creative endeavors.

    Become a Patron!

    Via Paypal:
    You can also set up recurring payments through Paypal, using this subscription button. Your choices are $1, 2, or $3 a month. (At $4 a month you should probably just use the Patreon!) Recurring paypal donors will get all the bonus material while their donations are active, but not some of the other perks Patreon patrons get (like all ebook downloads).

    Recurring options

    Donate by Mail: We’ll also gladly take cash, checks, beef jerky, and chocolate (er, packed separately please) at:
    Daron’s Guitar Chronicles
    c/o C. Tan
    39 Hurlbut St
    Cambridge, MA 02138

    You can also support the site by telling your friends about us and having them visit!

    Follow Daron on Twitter.

    We host occasional Kickstarters (every 2-3 years) to produce paperback book volumes, as well.

    Wishlists: At the suggestion of some readers, you can gift things to me or Daron from our wishlists. Links: Daron’s wishlist, Cecilia’s wishlist. We use the widget that lets us add things from non-Amazon sites to the Amazon list, too. (Some folks are boycotting Amazon for crappy treatment of their workers and monopolistic practices that damage the book industry: do not take this as an endorsement of Amazon’s tactics.)


    The following folks were “underwriters” for us, like the cool cats do for NPR.

    Welcome to the Wall of Awesome!
