Some blog and forum owners in addition to displaying ads and affiliate offers also have a "donate" button asking site visitors for "support." One site I noticed [they thanked their donors on the homepage] had received only a few donations and the amount donated wasn't even enough to pay for hosting. This had me wondering whether asking for donations should even be considered as a monetization method. Have any of you tried asking for donations to make some money on your sites? What were the results?
