Geek's gotta eat, you know? Well, I don't expect to be able to buy much food with the revenue from this site... but it is nice to have some help paying for web hosting and other costs related to maintaining innergeek.us in all of its geeky glory. So here's how you can help.
It's free! Tell your friends, coworkers, and relatives. Or email them if you're not a big fan of that "talking in person" thing. Post in your blog. Link to the Geek Test from your website. Put the url on every whiteboard at school or work. Have a Geek Party. Brag about your high Geek Test score at every gaming session, LAN party, SCA event and book club meeting.
Go ahead and count your time spent promoting geekiness as community service.
There are so many ways to help people learn about the Geek Test and to embrace their inner geek. My hope is that it's all done with a sense of pride. You can support your own inner geek with free buttons and avatars that I made especially for you.
You get the swag you crave, and I get a tiny commission for each purchase you make. We both win! Here's how it works: click on any of the links over there on the right side of the page. Buy something in the next month, and as long as you didn't delete your cookies, I will get credit for sending you to the site. Then it takes about two months for them to validate the purchase (making sure that it wasn't returned or disputed) and, once I accumulate $25, they send me a check. One check a month would be awesome! I will also try to keep an updated list of the special promotions that my sponsors run. Usually they are something like free shipping or 10% off your whole order. My list of sponsors varies, but I try to keep them geeky.
If you have some extra cash (or a 0% APR credit card), I will gladly accept tips through Paypal. Paypal takes a tiny cut so that I don't have to pay a monthly fee for this service. So for me to get your 2¢, make sure that you actually donate at least 33¢ (they take 30¢ plus 1-3% of each transaction). In humble thanks, I will provide a special online badge to anyone who sends me a donation.
