I spend a lot of time and effort on maintaining this blog and despite the fact that I sometimes have people to help with this and that – I mostly do this on my own. I’m not complaining, I love it, but it’s hard work.
Whenever someone donates something through the blog I take that money and put it back into the blog. I pay for hosting services, it goes towards paying for my bus card so I can get between places or I get bits and bobs I need for my cameras. I’m a student with no income and the boyfriend is taking care of us for the time being. We’re just a normal family with a broken down car, an apartment that needs a lot of fixing and bills for the princess’s extra curricular activities. The point I’m trying to make is that I heart Reykjavík is not a company and I’m not making any money out of it.
Since I’m sorted for hosting for the time being I’m trying to scrape together some money for a new lens for my camera that will help me take better landscape photos. At the moment I only have one good lens that is better suited for other things. The lens costs around 300 USD on Amazon.com – a little more if I buy it in Iceland. So if you’d like to show your appreciation and help a blogger out – I would very gladly accept your donations that will hopefully in the end get me that lens. Every little bit counts.
