Help support independent publishing by making a small contribution to Swimming Hole Heaven.
Websites based on primary research are an essential source of
information for the community.
Through the operation of my swimming hole website, over the years I have answered dozens of queries from
the general public, supported grass roots community campaigns for water safety or to prevent closure of recreational
assets, provided information or participated in interviews for several PhD candidates and
undergraduate students, and in one instance, I provided information to a tourist information centre when
they did not know the answer to a question being posed to them. As a primary content generator, I also
support the aggregator websites who rely on, but never pay for, this research, and have spent an inordinate amount of time and expense
trying to protect my unique content from aggregator websites.
As an individual, I am a genuinely independent publisher, without
the backing of any publishing houses, with no paid product placement or sponsored content generation. Financial contributions help me to
minimise the amount of advertising on this website. Swimming Hole Heaven does not allow
gambling advertising and does not contain annoying full page pop up ads.
As you can probably understand, finding, visiting and filming at remote locations takes a lot of time and expense. Your small
contribution, which can be as inexpensive as a cup of coffee, would go a long way to helping me maintain and improve this website. There are four levels
of support available via Paypal as follows:
Contributions are only spent on generating new content or purchasing equipment (e.g. audio-visual equipment, video props, etc.).
Contributions are not donations for tax purposes.
For those who use the Brave browser and want to send tips, in my opinion Brave is not a suitable way to contribute to this website, until such time as
Brave expands its payment options beyond the current requirement to use the cryptocurrency platform Uphold. After registering and trialling Brave
I have since uninstalled it. I will only use Brave when it can offer a payment option (Paypal or direct credit) that does not require me to hand over sensitive personal
identification to a cryptocurrency platform in another country with no telephone support and with no human oversight of the verification of my identity.
