1/1/2010 – Please Help Support Flying With Fish With A Sticker
The circumstances of the past week have caused me to view Flying With Fish in a new way. Flying With Fish should be self-sustaining with an annual revenue around $0.00…however the events of the past few days now require me operate the blog in a slightly different manner.
When I created Flying With Fish it was never intended to be a revenue source, it was literally intended to help 10 photographer friends learn to travel more effectively. I had grand plans for Flying With Fish…to have 2-to-5 posts a month on whatever popped into my head regarding flying as a photographer. Obviously the content, focus and audience for Flying With Fish has grown substantially since its humble beginnings being written hastily from my bed while packing for a quick 3 day trip to Hong Kong, Seoul and Nagoya.
Although the Transportation Security Administration has withdrawn its subpoena and is no longer actively investigating how I came to be in the possession of Security Directive SD-1544-09-06, I am now clearly on their radar screen. While I may not see any legal complications in the future, I didn’t see them in the past either.
Certain requirements for maintaining Flying With Fish have changed…and if you find this blog helpful please consider helping me maintain it.
You can help support Flying With Fish by purchasing a 3″ x 5″ Euro-Style sticker with the Flying With Fish logo (which by the way is named Herman). Stickers are US$5.00 (including US mail). If you’d like a Euro-Sticker, the PayPal address is – firstname.lastname@example.org
(UPDATE: It appears my PayPal account underwent a ‘security review’ on Monday and was closed yesterday for ‘security reasons.’ My PayPal acct has no complaints, no chargebacks, my PayPal card has no disputes, the account is tied to a verified US based back account…but suddenly I am a ‘security risk’ and PayPal will not discuss the details with me or offer a review of the account…I am sure it is a mere coincidence)
The help and support I have received over the past few days has been tremendous…THANK YOU!
