You may have noticed that Time To Be Awesome is ad free. You won’t find any pleas to disable Adblocker here. I can’t stand popups, and I can’t stand spam. Having advertising isn’t worth the hassle for the few cents I would get.
I actually pay money every year to keep ads off this site.
That’s right – real money, because I think that the internet is no place for annoying popup ads or intrusive banners. It’s certainly no place for spyware or adware or any kind of malware. Keeping my site ad free helps protect your computer and my conscience.
That, my friends, is another way I try to make the web just a tiny bit better.
My content is free here, you can read every word of it without paying a cent.
However! Nothing in life is truly free, at least for this humble blogger, and It would be really great if I could be compensated for my work. If you like this site, here are some ways you can support it.. I’ve tried to come up with many different options so even if you don’t want to spend a dime, you can still help out. You’ll have my eternal gratitude.
How to support my blog (some of them benefit you too!)

Download one of my books for free If you are a Kindle subscriber, you can download any of my eBooks for free and I still get a little over a dollar in return. But it costs you nothing. Check out my Books Page.
Buy one of my books If you would rather have a paper copy, the Books page also has those. A review would be nice too if you like it!
Send a free art card or buy a print here. Art cards are free for any of my works at this site, and each image also can be purchased in print and greeting card form. Stock is rotated, so check back.
Visit my Etsy shop…
…for high quality greeting cards, coloring pages, my coloring book, and various reasonably priced crystal specimens.

Use one of my affiliate links or set it as your default page when shopping!
Blick Dickblick.com is a seriously cool art store. They have a huge selection of high quality art materials at really good prices. They don’t sell junk and their customer service is amazing. They are family owned, have several brick and mortar stores, support artists in many ways, give money to art education, and will feature art from their buyers in their catalogs if it’s good enough. A truly amazing place, I can’t praise them enough. Use this link and make a purchase within a day, and I get a percentage of the purchase. You won’t be disappointed
Amazon I think you can get almost anything on Amazon if you look hard enough. If you want to support “Mindflight”, use this link next time you buy something – or every time if you’re a fan!
