A Penny For Your Thoughts: 50 Thoughts

I want someone to donate a single penny to me. This is a weird blog post. Please bear with me. You know how people with fundraisers always say "if you all donated a penny it would make a big difference" or "every penny counts" or something like that? Well it is a very specific and pointless ambition of mine to receive a donation of 1 pence through Paypal. Don't ask me why. Well actually, do ask me why, that's what this blog post is about.

I think it's something to do with the image of someone, at their computer, chuckling to themself because they're about to transfer someone the actual tiniest amount of money possible. And then the other person on the other end of this exchange being all "lol got meself a penny". It's amusing in the perfect tiny way.

To incentivise the realisation of this weird dream (and possibly also to satirise the convention of artists & creatives providing free labour/content), I am now going to write a list of 50 thoughts (compiled across whatever length of time it took me to have them). That way you can consider yourself paying me a penny for my thoughts.

So if you would like to be a part of that, here is a button. If you feel like it, you can 'buy' my thoughts for a penny.
