Support This Site

My goals in publishing this blog include giving you sunny smiles, proving a daydreaming path for a little island escapism in the middle of your hectic week, tossing a dose of positivity your way, and encouraging you to live your own Better Life in big and small ways every day.

I hope you like what you see here!

If so, please help support Choosing the Better Life through any of the options below. Your participation will help grow our Better Life community and improve this blog. Thank you!

  • Comment! Comments on blog posts are delightful for me and give me insight to what resonates with readers. Also, the presence of comments encourages other comments, and an active comment section is good for the blog’s traffic and search rankings. Mostly, though, I just like to hear what you have to say!
  • Subscribe! Please add your email and subscribe to the blog (see the box at the top right column). You’ll receive posts and updates directly to your inbox. I may do some special things in the future for subscribers only. Sign up now! (Your email address will go no further than the privacy of my behind-the-scenes site. It will not be shared with or sold to anyone. For my eyes only.)

  • Power a Post.  Although I do not feature paid advertisers on the blog, I’ll create opportunities for individuals or businesses to sponsor a post. Unlike some “sponsorships,” I’ll still write whatever I write, per usual. However, the post’s sponsor will receive special thanks and recognition and, if they’d like, a link back to their own site.

  • Donate – Operating Expenses.  Some blogs have a “buy me a cup of coffee” type of button. Well, there’s no coffee shop on the island, and I don’t spend money that way (anymore)! Other blogs put up “buy me a beer” button, which I’m sure Beau would support. 🙂 However, my focus is on the maintenance and growth of this blog. Please consider making a donation* to help underwrite the domain/hosting/technical/growth costs of the blog. Click on the donate button below to access PayPal’s secure site.

  • Continue to be your fabulous selves. It’s my interaction with you that matters most to me. I like connecting with you, bringing smiles to your faces, and inspiring you in tiny ways to live your own Better Life. Please keep returning to the blog. You are much appreciated, Better Lifer!


*Disclaimer to appease the lawyer in me – This blog is not a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so donations here should not be claimed as tax deductions. Of course, I still think it’s a worthwhile cause if you like what you see here and want to support the blog’s growth. 🙂
