How Do You Help Out a Blogger?

My friend J.D. Roth of the awesome Get Rich Slowly blog came out with a post today about Seth Godin’s advice to click on ads to support a blogger:

Ads Are NOT the New Online Tip Jar

I agree with J.D. completely. If you like Zen Habits, don’t click on ads just to support me. Click on them if you’re interested in what they’re advertising, sure, but don’t just click randomly.

Instead, here’s how you can help out any blogger — myself included (some of this is J.D.’s advice):

Finally, I’d just like to say that I’m extremely grateful to all of you. You’ve made my dream possible, and I’m thankful every day for that. Your participation in Zen Habits, your feedback that helps me improve, your financial support … it’s all been wonderful. Thank you, all of you.

Edit: The headline had a typo at first. It sounded really dumb. I’m not perfect. :)
