I’ve been pondering on how to cover my costs without compromising my writing, or the trust of my readers. I think I’ve come up with a rather ‘Normal for Glastonbury’ solution. I’m a big fan of the ‘Magic Hat’. It’s a way of funding gatherings where people put whatever monetary contribution they can afford into the hat and (hopefully) the running costs get covered. It’s about inclusivity and sharing – no one gets left out but those that can have the opportunity to be generous and supportive. I’m putting out my own Magic Hat, via Paypal to support my running and living costs and enable me to spend more time telling people around the world about Glastonbury. To read more about why I am doing this please read my ‘Show Normal For Glastonbury Some Love‘ blog post.
