Feel the love! - (Get PAID!)

Sometimes you come across 'stuff' on the web that solves a problem. Sometimes you can download free stuff, stuff that someone has created but is willing to share for free. Sometimes you come across a blog that has just the information you need, again for free. Ever wanted to show your appreciation for this 'stuff'?

Well now you can with Flattr - http://flattr.com/ 

In brief (taken from flattr.com) - when you're registered to flattr, you pay a small monthly fee. You set the amount yourself. At the end of the month, that fee is divided between all the things you flattered. You're always logged in to the account. That means that giving someone some flattr-love is just a button away. And you should! Clicking one more button doesn't add to your fee, it just divides the fee between more people! Flattr tries to encourage people to share. Not only pieces of content, but also some money to support the people who created them.

Let's spread the love!

Here's a Q&A between Flattr founder Peter Sunde & Wired Magazine

We think that the combination of Flattr and Squarespace is a match made in HEAVEN.  - The game has changed.  Now you can be rewarded for making the world a nicer place - You dont have to set up e-commerce and try to market your wares, your ideas etc... just put a button next to your lovely pictures, and get money for ideas and creativity. 

Flattr is a hugely democratic advance in creative remuneration and we think it has the potential to really open up the creative world.... maybe.

If you like the thought of using Squarespace and love the idea of getting paid for your insight... then we can help you embed Flattr and start the ball rolling for you.
