I live in Greece.
Times are hard here. Banks remain shut since last Monday and capital controls have been imposed since then and will not be lifted for some time, according to the latest news. Among other things, this means that all transactions with foreign banks are blocked. Most of my domains are registered with Namecheap and Hover and I have to renew some of them this month. It's really important to do this.
Also, this might sound less important, but my Spotify and Google Play Music subscriptions will stop renewing next month. In general, I am unable to use PayPal, Google Wallet, have any transaction with online retailers abroad, such as Apple, Amazon/Audible, Google or support crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Stuff I used to do on a weekly basis.
I hadn't though of adding a donate button on this blog before. I've never had ads and I've ignored emails asking me to monetize this blog in the past.
But now I need your help.
I've added a donate button on the right and if you live outside Greece, you can help me.
