Ever wonder if your partner considers you to be valuable? One way to gauge this is to ask him/her to support you in accomplishing or acquiring something that is important to you. Asking for assistance is not always easy. I am very familiar with the arrogance and/or stubbornness that come with independence. However, I also know that nothing of significance can be accomplished alone – and that is why I am asking for your help. I hope that my blog has provided you with enough value for you to want to do so.
As I round out the second year of Frank, I am beginning several new initiatives that I hope you will find valuable. In order to do so, I am asking for sponsorship. I invite you, dear reader, to help me continue spreading frank love by sponsoring my column with a one-time or monthly contribution via Paypal. One-time donations can be made at any level that you are comfortable. Monthly sponsorship amounts can be as little as $1 or as much as $500 (see below for other increments), and will be automatically deducted from your credit card or bank account each month.
I have been writing the weekly Frank Love blog for the past year and a half. Many of you have been reading and commenting since the beginning. Some of you are newer to the family. Whichever category you fall into, I appreciate you reading and sharing your own frank love each week. It is my hope that you find Frank entertaining, interesting and thought-provoking. If you do, I have been living up to my intent – to provide you with value. By reading my blog and furthering the discussion, you certainly provide me with value. I embrace and appreciate the opportunity to present reasons and reasoning about romantic relationships that promote nurturing and accepting one another as we are.
I also find your feedback invaluable. It provides me with insightful questions that lead me to expand my thinking. Sometimes you confirm my understanding of various issues. Other times, you completely disagree with me, and let me know in a no-holds-barred, no-nonsense manner, which I appreciate immensely. Frank Love needs frank love too.
In a few weeks, my blogs will go “video.” So, in addition to reading my blogs, you can watch me to present them to you. You have gotten to know my message through my writing; now, enjoy it with a bit more of my personality in tow.
I am also adding a few new voices to the dialogue. I have welcomed a new guest blogger, Ms. Sunshine Muse, twice (and counting). And I have a second guest preparing his inaugural blog; you will meet him soon. If you are interested in sharing your unique relationship story (i.e. your rendition of Frank Love) please let me know. I hope you have and will enjoy continue to enjoy these additions.
As for my fundraising initiative, I hope that you will consider helping me (and my new guest bloggers) continue providing you with frank love. But no pressure. If I have been doing my part well, I hope that your decision will be an easy one. If I have not been bringing you the value I intend, your level of support will inform me of such. Admittedly, I still have work to do. I hope your support will help provide me with the opportunity to do so.
