Phone Call. Property. LAW.

My Phone Call is not government property. It is not the property of the radio station. It is my property.

I want my property now to do with whatever I want.

Give me my property.

I want my property now.

Give me my phone call under power of the LAW.

How to Setup Your Own Website and Start Receiving Donations

Probably the first thing you will need is an email address maybe even 2. One to have all your accounts under and another that you want to display on the web itself. You can goto www.gmail.com to get an address if you dont have one already.

The next step I guess is a paypal account. This allows people with credit cards or now visa debit cards which is an eftpos card that uses your own money not on credit that can be used online to buy things with, it allows them to give you money. My bank has only just got online with visa debit cards and I ordered my card yesterday. Not that I ever have any money. But just think a whole lot of new people all able to give you money now who couldn't before because they didn't have credit cards. Goto www.paypal.com and sign up and get a paypal account.

There is a bit of code that you obtain once you have signed upto paypal that you copy and paste. It will show a little button on your website that people click and can then give you money with there cards. The code can be found once you have an account by going to merchant services then clicking donations and just follow the wizard from there.

The next thing you'll need is the website itself. My site is powered by www.blogger.com There are various templates and colour schemes so you could have a site that looks identical to this one or one that is completely different. Using blogger is very simple. One click to post something new. There's a layout feature which is where u can arrange items like posting an image in one of the columns, or links or what ever you want there, it has full help files as well. If your more advanced than this and can code your own site then you don't really need to be reading what i've written but a free hosting site is www.110mb.com and you can code the files in basic html or upload something you've created in frontpage or some other editing software.

So basically you add a paypal button to your website and then start posting content writing articles, videos, whatever you can think of to entertain people. One of the keys i guess is getting other links from other websites. This is where I fail. Getting links is like getting a vote that your site is popular. This will lift you in search engine rankings making your content seen. Of course if you have bad content you can't expect many people to visit your site. You need content that is popular and people are searching for. An idea or two. You can't just expect people to hand over money just because you ask. You need to sell yourself and reel them in. Again I fail so i Haven't had one donation in four years. So i'm proberly the wrong person to telling you how to make a good website. This guide is really only to get you up and running.

Being social helps to get links. If your a good communicator and can talk to people then you can get links. You could visit forums, or another good way to get hits is to post your articles on reddit.com. If you can get past the filters and editors which I can't then you can gain alot of hits from a place like this.

Another way to monetize your site is with google adsense. www.google.com/adsense. Sign up for an account and you can setup ads on your website which is relevant to your content that people can click on and every click earns you a small percentage. These ads work great if you have alot of traffic but not so well if you don't.

Good luck with that. Your ideas and thought and creations that go into your website can be what catch peoples attention and cause them to give you money I guess. I haven't had one donation so i don't know.

Anyway I was inspired after I got a couple of hits asking "how to get donations".
