First month of flattr

June 3rd, 2010

I was really excited to see how flattr works and whether this could have a future or not.

So the results for me after 14 days are: I flattred 91 ct (I joined in the middle of the month, so only a part of my 2€/m were used) and got flattered 1.62€.

Just to make it clear: I’m not looking to make any money from this blog! All the flattr-money will be reflattered (what a word). It’s just nice to see that the myth about the “all-for-free”-internet user is just a myth. Some sites got more than 100€ like the TAZ or podcaster Tim Pritlove.

Of course it’s not something you can live on nor does it pay for even the electricity needed to run my PC for that time but that’s not what I think flattr is good for.

It shows that you appreciate someones work and it shows that you really care for it in a real way. Not just in a “I like that”-Facebook way which only gives money to FB.
